It's on my short list for 2010. I'm looking at replacing my TDM 900. I need handling, grunt and good finish quality. It's either the Norge or Ducati's replacement for the Multistrada.

In the end the original poster with a bunch of questions bought a Beemer, R1200R.


Search "Norge" here and you will prolly get more than you want.


First year with mine 14K on it and just getting ready to get it out this year, it is still at Heli-Bars having the new set made and I should get it back this week.

Best,
Rob

I love the look of the Norge and would have a black one in a heartbeat.
There was a black 8v sport 1200cc sitting outside my local dealer today. Best finished bike i have seen all year.
Well, next to a Ducati D16RR that i lusted after last week.
Bit out of my price range.
..and no hard bag option.

Hey g容g,
Yeah, he did some good research, tried the Norge out and it just did not talk to him... They are not for everyone, obviously...
Good Lord forbid we're all alike and all that....
Ridin' yet...? Maybe tomorrow for me, friggin' cold here STILL, melt run-off and re-freeze is a big ta-do on my route to work.

Radzo...

Guzzi Griso

Gday fellas I am after a MG oem tail bag for my Griso and I want to order from the USA (seems almost impossible to get from local guys and they are more than double price!) Can someone recommend to me a good Guzzi dealer in USA that will have an online shopping service? Much appreciated for any help!

My new to me 2007 Griso 1100

Moto International. I dealt with Dave for my bike and the few accessories I picked up with it from across the country. Super accommodating, patient, and will see things through. That latter part is the most important if you have ever dealt with getting parts or accessories for anything Piaggio (Clown-shoes). Did I mention he gave me a better price for a left over 07 than I could find on a used 07?

Thanks, I had a V7 Sport before the V1100. Here's a photo or two. The side cover stickers added horsepower!:


I rode this bike alot. Did not have a car then or a garage. Check out the Hippy vans:

No picture, but this thread has convinced me that an SP1000 is in my future.
