You guys are slowly turning me on to the look of Moto Guzzi.

Still not sure if I would buy one, but at least I'm starting to like 'em.

Rocked up to a showroom to check one out yesterday, same version as above. Much more impressive in the flesh than in pics. Finish seemed very nice. Less hefty than expected. With the seat set on "high", really speccy riding position, with a gentle lean onto the 'bars and very low-set 'pegs. And you'd never know that fuel tank held 32 Litres. Felt like you could do a tankful between stops (actual riding might tell different story, of course. )

The looks of the Griso turned me on to Guzzi. I bought an '07 to replace the high strung Buell 1125cr I never clicked with. The Griso just spoke to me. You have to try one to really get it.

I am looking at replacing my FJR with a NTX...and the FJR is a fantastic touring mount.

Now the Rocket III is my idea of a Godzilla cruiser!

The Touring version is really detuned from the factory, but a friend has an '08 and so far he has a dyno proven 70% power improvement with a 12% fuel economy loss with just pipes, air cleaners and tune. I have the Roadster version and it is great good fun.

For the first time in a long while the bike I want today is the one I've got. I never really fell in love with my 1150GS, although it was a great bike I'd been riding it less and less and decided it was time for a change.

Test rode everything Beemers, Guzzis, even went to a HD dealer, and decided I'd have a KTM 990SMT, but when I was in the dealers last week I had a quick spin on their RC8 and fell in love.

Picked it up yesterday, even in the peeing rain it felt special, just need to work out what to do about luggage.

Ive wanted a Benelli motorcycle for a long time. This Tre K Amazonas especially. I have no idea where to find a Benelli dealership and thats the biggest drawback for me.
