I have been riding and wrenching on bike for 39 years, but I have never owned a Moto Guzzi and I think it is time to start looking for one! I am doing my homework and reading all I can about them, but was wondering if any of you folks could point me toward certain models and years that are known to be good ones. Also, if you could help me out with critical things to look for in a used Guzzi, tht would be great. I am aware of all the usual items common to all bikes, but not versed in Guzzi mechanical history (yet). For reference, I am not a racer and am looking for a basic simple bike (kind of like an Italian version of my '73 R75/5). I am heavy, weighing in at 250 with gear so prolly need to be looking at fairly strong pullers, engine wise. As for cost, willing to spend up to $4K or so. Thanks for your time and help! Like I say, I have been reading a lot, but that isn't is good as your "real world" advice!
