p.s. I've ridden both, and I'd take the V7 Sport on a curvy road every time.
I got it. I too would take the guzzi for the sheer character factor, but my '06 883R was a close second. I've made the decision to buy a new V7 and a new 883 Iron a hundred times, but I have too many other things I want to do financially right now. Either one would get some suspension mods and soft luggage, and I'd have no problem going anywhere on either one.
