Wait aren't you a snowbird ????
Yeah, so it goes without saying that I'm a weather weenie. I'll see if I can take the trailer down and pick up the bike on one of the rainy days.
I like riding in the rain, I'll ride it up to your house for you. Save wear and tear on the trailer, etc...
living where you do how would you know!
I can do one better. To save on trips, I'll run it the first 600 miles and drop it back off at OAM for the first service, then you can deliver it to him.
Thanks guys, I think I'll take the trailer since I had them leave the top box and it's mount off the bike so I'll need to carry that stuff, I'll just store them in my attic unless someone who bought a gray bike wants a top box.
I spent this past weekend down in Austin. Had to stop by AF1 Racing and have a look at the V85TT. They have 9 or 10 in stock.
Damn, that's a good looking bike in person. Seat is quite firm and the bars felt like I would have to roll them up/forward a bit if I were an owner. Otherwise, wow, it's a really nice bike.
Right? I really really like the looks of the bike and overall feel. If it was a bit cheaper I'd be all in
IMHO that bike is priced very well.
I agree , I was very surprised when the pricing came out it was lower than I expected. I feel lucky to have one I just wish I had more time to ride it.
Life is short.
I think it's a safe bet that anyone who won't buy one at the current price wouldn't buy one if it was $1000. cheaper either.
I don't get it when I see people "shopping" as if buying a dishwasher or clothes drier. Should I get the Whirlpool or the GE 'coz it's on sale? You don't buy a motorcycle with your wallet, you buy it with your heart. If it "speaks to you".
I couldn't agree more. When I saw the concept of the V85 I knew it would be a great fit for me. I followed the information available, visited the factory and Agostini (where I did get some updates), and had a deposit down over half a year before Guzzi had their website taking deposits.
Getting one of the first ones in the country has been a very satisfying experience. Sorry I couldn't meet up with you that weekend Vic.
I quite agree! This is all quite true! But it still leaves us with the very difficult choice between the motorcycles we'd date (V4 Panigale?) and the ones we'd bring home to meet our mother...
...and having to choose between the current stable and a new pony. Or maybe I can figure a way to sneak it in as an addition to the stable....
This is obviously the best, and in fact, only solution.
I have made a lot of my motorcycle purchasing decisions based on fact finding rather than feel. This is mostly because the majority of dealerships in the USA won't let you test ride anything, so how else can one decide? Looks alone? That'd be dangerous on many bikes, including this one I believe. I feel like its a bike I'd need to ride to appreciate. I also buy most bikes used because manufacturers can suck so that isn't helping me any lol
My dealer offered me a test ride on a V85 without me asking.
Aaargh! Members of my tribe hate you! You lucky dog!
Around here, I'm not even sure some dealers would let you look at the sales literature unless you bougth it first...
