Summary:

It's my Italian girlfriend..

Faults:

Replacement of the clutch-lever after my bike fell on it on the camping-site.

Further on just the normal maintenance.

General Comments:

It handles very well for a beginner like I am.

Fully packed with 2 H&B cases, and 2 tail-bags, it still handles OK, if you adjust your riding style.

It took me over the Gotthard pass, Furka pass and Grimsl pass in Switzerland on the same day fully packed!

Last September I visited the French Alpes, Monaco and the Ardeche and had lots of rain, but it never stopped running. Italian bikes and water... myth busted I would say.

The homeward journey was over 840 km in one day, and I must admit that my butt was happy to be home. No complaints from the Guzzi however.

In the weekends I'm touring in Holland with friends on much faster bikes, and they have to admit that I keep up very well with them.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
