Yossef is back! (well, maybe he never left...)

Yossef articles are the greatest.

Anyhow, it's a weird bike and some might even say a little ugly...which of course means I like it.

What the B. Bar said. Ill have my Behemoth Moto in siver please.
My girlfriend would also go on more frequent, "big loops" if this particular Italian were in the garage.
More reviews from Yossey, please.

I'm not really into motorcycling's version of the SUV, the MUV. I guess these bikes are nice, but I guess if it ain't fugly, it ain't a MUV. Yossef still rules!

Dang. That Guzzi makes Ken's V-Strom look svelte. I'd rather have a Griso. Or a Breva sport.

Europeans are huge on big "DP" bikes even though there's almost no place that they are allowed to use them off road any more. And this supports the belief that "europeans are more sophisticated than Americans" how? Looks like they buy bikes as irrationally as anyone else does.

Some of those streets in the Euro cities feel like you're offroad!

Huzzah! A Dual-Sport competitor to the VStrom that's actually uglier than my bike! I hope they sell a million of 'em.

Aside from the Tiger they are ALL uglier than the V-Strom. BMW jigsaw puzzle. KTM cubist nightmare. Multistrada Cylon raider. LOL! Where's David Carradine? They were designed for the Death Race 2000. Or 2008 now.

BTW, it's not snowing where you live is it? If not you could ship some of your excess co2 over here, please?

No, right now it is 8 layers of ugly in Florida. Tons of Forest Fires (where is a Boeing engineer when we need him) and a lot of drought. My parents lawn is dead as dead can be and they are on water restrictions. The lake is in decent shape right now, but southern Florida has been frying with temps in the mid to upper 90s.

I'd rather have my 56 degree temps than deal with that throughout the year.

I try to like the Guzzi line-up but there is always one thing that I can't like about each bike. This one happens to posses a stupefying disregard for aesthetics. They should have named it the Gargoyle.

Thanks for the read Yossef
