Default Arrrgh

Not too many kind words for the Goose. I've just been made what I consider a very good offer on a "new" 07. I refer to the aforementioned "Arrrrgh".

Really only went to the show to look at dual sports.

I've owned three Guzzis, and loved 'em. If you enjoy Guzzis, then what testers think doesn't matter.

I'd looked at them for quite a while but in the way I look at Heidi Klum. That's nice but I'll never. In the review what they said it was good at is precisely what I want it to do. I guess I was just taken a back.

I'll go visit them next weekend and start ironing out the details to see if it's really gonna happen. I'm prepared to make the purchase, I've learned to keep cash on hand, someday I'll tell you the Remington 40X story, I've still got to wrap my head around this as it's not what I'd been planning on doing but this maybe one of the better deals I've stumbled across. The Ninja will never see a slab again.

Why not? Are you going to trade it in, or did you decide that it's just not cut out for that kind of riding?

No I'm keeping it, should I make the purchase. It just won't be banging down the interstate for extended periods of time.

I have 5 bikes and love my Guzzi Le Mans best of all. Great power, decent handling and a character that is above anything I have ever owned. At 85 it just lopes along, smooth and turbulence free. The ergos are perfect, with no weight on wrists or chest. With the factory titanium cans and track-only ECU there is another 10-15 hp over stock. Maybe the Breva is detuned and boring but the Le Mans is a totally different beast. Like a Kenny Dreer Norton that actually exists.
