Whatever rings your bell. I will pass on some advice. ride a Guzzi an hour or two before you buy one.

Back in the late 80's, I had the great good fortune to babysit a LeMans for 8 or 9 months while my old friend, "Admiral" Wheeler was stuck on a carrier in the Persian Gulf. I think I had more fun than he did.



And I agree strongly with whoever said "ride it". I imagine Guzzis are pretty polarizing bikes. Lucky for me, I was polarized in a postive manner...

I *am* sold. Waiting for my local dealer (Winchester MotoSports in VA) to get some. ... and waiting and waiting.



Will be putting my Moto Guzzi V11 LeMans up for sale. A Breva would be the 3rd Guzzi for me.



Am now torn between getting the Breva as soon as they get some, or waiting on the Norge, which is pretty much what I want to do with the Breva anyway. Norge will supposedly be released in March 2006. Normally, I'd get cynical and say that translates to early 2008, but it's really a Breva with nice touring stuff, and they should have learned enough from their homologation mistake (delayed the Breva's US arrival) to actually make that date.

137mi on the ODO? is there a digit missing or something? What, a dozen laps around the neighborhood?

Where can I find a Breva 1100? It's been promised to arrive in the US but it has been delayed and delayed again for months! Are parts for the bike going to be as hard to get? That's my concern.

Good eye!

That was 2 years ago just after I bought it. Notice the temporary license plate. 2nd day I had it.
