Default I love it!

There's just something about a air cooled V-Twin motorcycle and I must say the more the merrier.



Rock on Guzzi!!!

No mention of build quality . I heard from a mechanic at a dealer, several years ago mind, that fit and finish left a lot to be desired. Maybe Piaggio has addresed this ? Looks like they are starting to make some interesting bikes. I hope they do well. The more the merrier I say.

A mechanic friend of mine says that the late '90s Guzzis he used to work on were among the worst for fit and finish that he'd ever seen... but the recent ones, since Aprilia and now Piaggio have put some money into the firm, are among the best. If you get a chance to see a Griso in the metal rather than in a magazine, you'll be impressed.

I rode an old 70's Eldorado once and always dug Guzzi's after that. I could be happy with the big Griso. Nice bikes.

So, it is possible to build crusiers that can handle. Whoodathunk?



I guess you just have to want to.

I love my Guzzi. Great bike, great big thumping fun. My LeMans is my favorite of five bikes. 90 horses, good reliable handling and great respect from all riders. The factory titanium cannisters have the best sound in all motorcycling. Champange gold fairing, blacked out engine with epoxy-red sideocvers. 485 pounds with a 1100cc V-twin. Low vibration (the good kind, not the four cylinder whine) clip-ons with two jackhammers at your service. There are riders on faster bikes but none with such a big *****-eating grin!

It's nice to see bike makers still building a variety of engine configurations. It would be a boring world if the inline four was the only engine available.

The Geezer Glide handles just fine. Just think of the shower of sparks from the floorboards as a no cost option.
