Forgive me if this has been asked in the previous 100 pages; how reliable are these?

In my experience, Guzzis are very reliable.

YMMV.

None of my business, but shipping a bike with bags on is an invitation for damage.

Ship the bags separately via UPS, or something.

I am using haulbikes.com and their max width for my quote is 48 inches. They say to leave the bags on and they are safe. If it is more than 48 I will have the dealer ship them but it is hard to ask them to cover the cost of shipping them. The dealer was going to put some bubble wrap on them for protection on the bike. A little help please, tom

Trust me, my post was intended to help.

I'd rather pay for UPS shipping than to hassle with scratched bags after sitting in a bike delivery trailer for weeks...

Should have them back next week.
Did you install the spoke wheel, or stock.

Anyone running the Penske shock on their Stelvio? Thoughts if so?

So far the Stelvio has won. She loves to go riding. Is asking for a bike and classes when she turns 15.

Yeah...shameful, I know

That was a 200 mile mostly asphalt day. We did a few miles of forest roads on that ride, but then got caught in 2.5 hours of rain so I'll blame the clean bike on Mother Nature

Forseti's Stelvio in his avatar looks minty fresh.
