Thanks for the read Yossef
Yeah they couldn't name this one the Bella. Stelvio must be slang for really ugly.

I just cant want a bike where my knees sit directly on the valve covers. Otherwise its right in line with what I'm looking for.

I know that nerdlinger that's why I said it must be slang!

Sometimes my brilliance eludes people.

Big F'ing Deal. An icy snow covered mountain pass. Let's see how the thing does after 20 miles of 95 degrees and 10,000 Q-Tips on I-95.

Well shoot there's another one on the list of bikes I want. Funily enough they're all adventure type bikes, in no particular order...

Ural Patrol
Buelly Uly
M.G. Norge
M.G. Stelvio
Vstrom 1000.

Must be regressing to my dirty bike roots.. I think the Norge is a real possibility, it'd make an excellent commuter and short-tourer though I don't even know how to pronounce it. The Buell would be a logical choice as a logging road bike and all rounder as would the V strom and now they show up with a Stelvio...

Tough choice, it'll take me a year or so to come up with the coin anyway so I have time to think about it I guess.

Here's an O-fficial Guzzi ad.....

I'll put my money down on you buying the Vstrom 1000 before those others you listed. You are far to cantankerous to deal with a bad dealer network or parts ordering issues (M.G.) and seem to be far beyond the days where you want to spend more time wrenching than riding (Ural). You might get the Buell, but I'm thinking the VStrom is what you'll end up with.

Not to mention:

10,000+ accessories that you get to call "farkels."
Stromtrooper.com, where the oil theads never end.
Lifetime membership in the "Klazy Ken Seminar DVD of the Month Club."

Let's see if Guzzi can match that!
