Cool bike. Too bad about the bicycle wheels.

You know what the difference is between a rare, limited-edition Guzzi and a standard Guzzi? One is so hard to find that you could go years without seeing one on the street or in a showroom. And the other is limited to 500 units.

.... I know tow guys who own Guzzis. An 06 Breva and an old LeMans. That's a big step up from a mere 5 years ago when it was zero. There's even a Guzzi shop in Idaho now!

That color combo is down right sweet. Nice job, Guzzi!

I've seen lots of Guzzis. None made after 1989 or so, but lots of Guzzis otherwise.

I'm not sure there is a dealer in Illinois that even sells Moto Guzzi. The only one I ever knew dropped them years ago. I like this bike, but their dealer network isn't exactly stellar.

There's a few around here. I've seen LeMans', Brevas, and Californias.

You live in Maine. Other than gay marriages, there's a lot of stuff you don't see.

Longride, Rose Farm Classics in Woodstock is a Moto Guzzi dealer. In fact that's all he sells. He services BMW and Duc too.

He's top notch. Open Sunday's too!
