I enjoy a R1150R, you'll love the Breva. Good luck.

Drop an extra $1500 and get the Griso. Saw it at the Seattle show and it was awesome. Good seating position and just different enough to get the lust factor going. The Breva was nice, but much more utilitarian.

Well the problem is Guzzi gets in your blood if you connect with the bike then you won't want to ride anything else. I have the California Touring and also the sickness that comes with owning one. If you get yours you will soon understand what I am talking about.

Excellent!



Sounds like ole Wobble has got exactly the right sort of disease!



Wobble, have you seen the Breva 1100 fully kitted with it's saddlebags, windshield & topbox? Nice and lots less plastic than the Norge....though my rapidly ageing bones would probably appreciate the Norge a LOT more on a chilly day.



Looking forwards to seeing them at the bike show here in March now that Guzzi NA is HQ'd here. Hopefully they'll pull out all the stops. Guzzi has shot itself in the foot sooo many times...



Speaking of ATL, too bad Wobble didn't live here with his ST2. Several guys around town that can take mighty fine care of Dr. T's best. And none of them are at the two dealers either...

i have to agree ... love the looks of the new breva, and guzzis sound fantastic with aftermarket exhausts.

Agreed. Hate the name, but the Griso has got to be the sweetest looking standards ever made.

how is a bike with the engine sticking out the sides "sweet in traffic"? don't get me wrong- guzzis are gorgeous machines- but to me, "sweet in traffic" means being able to lanesplit without scratching cars. maybe you mean it doesn't have overheating problems, like my sprint st does? actually, now that i think about it, i have to bend the mirrors in before i split... not so sweet

Well dang son, ain't you got no meat between yer ears?? A Gootsie motor don't stick out that far! Beemer, Goldwing and Valkarie motors stick out further. You better go ride a Guzzi so you knows what yer talkin bout!!
