Touting its vibrating attributes might make it an easier sell ...

Default Re: I give up.

I rode the Geezer Glide to the gym but that's about it. My riding buddy's wife has been under the weather so we've been unable to plan a real trip.



I've got a couple of wimmin that have expressed interest in a trip.



If you're down this way again look me up and we'll go out and thrash around. You can ride the Duc and I'll scrape floorboards on the glide.

Good job Moto Guzzi. I'd love to get a test ride on one.

I think that's what the Alps are for.

What are you talking about?! That thing is sweeeeeet. Not at all reminiscent of the cardboard-box styling of the new BMWs.

I think it's much fresher that the new crop out there... with the possible exception of the Sprint ST.

I'll be staying with you the month of August.(Do you have Mexico ins. on the duc?)



But really, I'm going to be there for my b-day at the end of July. The wife and I are staying with some friend in Rancho Santa Fe and playing a little golf at The Farms.



Should I move this to a "my space" account?

It's gorgeous for sure. But the 1300 Yammie is a ragingly better deal for the money. Piaggio scooters are very nice too, but again, overpriced considering content IMO.



The biggest argument against the MG is parts availability. I continue to hear horror stories about waiting months for parts because "they're on vacation in Italy"...
