I am sure you have figured out the nicest thing about small Guzzis, the high torque peak. You can run them all day at 90. They are so much better to ride long distances than an R65 that there is no comparison.
I wish I had one now, a fine bike with style and character.
It lived on an island for years. I have only ridden it up and down the road a bit, but if its better than the R65 that's a bonus as that was my last commuter bike. I gather the Heron heads are where the torque comes from....good enough for Mr Lindbergh good enough for me.
