The love of my life
Basically nothing. I had to fix a few things from dumb previous owners, and I've crashed a few times, so now it's down for restoration.
If your compression's low, check the rings before assuming it's more serious. They wear, but they are cheap and easy to replace.
Not a bad guzzi, can be very expensive. You can spend $4k on an engine alone. New owners often have about 12 months trouble while the bike settles down, and recovers from the previous owner..:)
I love this bike. I've owned dozens of the most exotic and common bikes available, and I can afford anything I want. At the same time it's a study in mediocrity. but does everything I want it to. It's as fast as I am, handles well, needs little maintenance and I can tour 12 hour days on it. Every bike I've had till now was a one night stand. This one's the marrying kind. I'll never sell it.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
