Supply and demand. Most people hold onto their Guzzis, thus at any given time, there aren't too many for sale. Look at the price of used Harleys of the same year, and you'll see that the Guzzis aren't too unreasonably priced.

Based on the condition which appears to be stellar It seems a good buy, but I bet they have a little wiggle room. Let us know if you get it.

Sounds reasonable to me too,but I don't really know that much about Guzzi's.
I was eyeballing an 04 EV11 California with less than 8,000 miles for 5K.

Yep. I've wasted 3 grand on a lot worse machines. That's a peach.

These are really starting to grow on me. That could be expensive.

Cortez -- so sorry to hear of your job loss. Working in the tech industry, that is one of my biggest fears (because someday, I'll be replaced by someone in India).

Do you still have your Agility 125? You can't get any cheaper to run than that.

Have an opportunity to get one of these locally to get me back in the Sport Touring game. Any advice from the collective?

The one I think the most of recently is the 690R but I do miss having a sport tourer in the garage, something more substantial than the VFR. An RT would be nice but too spendy. Perhaps an FJR.

I've got a friend's brand new Triumph 1200 Explorer in my garage sitting beside my GS before its exportation to Mexico where it will likely have a long life filled with adventure. I did not think much of these when released but seeing one in the flesh and seeing it perform it has grown on me. No risk to my GS though.
