Looking good, what are your thoughts so far, was the BMW R1200RT on your short list before you bought, if so I'd be interested in hearing why you went with the Guzzi instead of the BEEMER, the two bikes look to be quite a bit alike, at least on paper, I have ridden a couple of RT's, but only sat on the Norge.
I understand the price diff, and the fact that there are a lot more BEEMERS on the road, I even kind of understand the easier to work on thing, even though most of us don't do much more than change tires & oil, but I've never heard that BMW is having a lot of trouble with there drive units, there was a batch of "K" bikes that came out that BMW acknowledged were wearing out prematurely (around 60,000 miles), but they have extended the warranty on the drive unit on those bikes to 200,000 miles, and as far as I've heard the problem doesn't extend to the "R" bikes (R bikes are the ones with the air cooled twin & dry clutch like the R 1200 RT & your GOOSE:mrgreen: K bikes have the in line 4's) anyway if you have some information or a link you can shoot my way on the 29% failure thing I sure would appreciate it.Can u say finial drive [email protected] 29%....The Goose is easier to work on too...Beside that everbody has a beemer, very few have Moto Guzzi's.. Last but not least there blowing them out for 12,500 right now and since this was a 400 mile demo got another 10% off that....try getting on a new BMW @ that price...
lets get together sometime and ride to Mount St Helens haven't got up there yet...PM meNice bike and sounds you like a great deal too.
I like the aircooled V-Twin!
Might see ya up in the Gorge sometime,not many of those out there so if ya see a big blue H-D Electra rider waving like a fool,stop and say hey.8)
