Very cool bike. Most of us aren't brave enough to own one...

I sat on one last week at a dealer in Spokane WA. Very cool looking, riding position is fairly upright, the seat is made of stone. I wasn't so impressed with the 20 year old salesman.... Knowing the way I work, I'll buy one in 15 years when they are even harder to keep functioning!

Were you looking to buy the salesman too?

Awesome bike, those.

FWIW--The reviews I've read have pretty much all said the same, great on pavement- not so much off pavement.

It is very cool looking.

I concur! Much too common to buy now. Like you I'll have one in ten years when it's one of those "remember when Benneli made a big trailie?" bikes....

Nice looking but I'm afraid the exhaust would not last long off road around here. There's a Benelli dealer about a block from my place, I'm going to go take a look.
