Overall Review

The other half bought this for my birthday !! because she couldn't trust me to pick a bike that fit her bum!! she still moans about the seat being "hard" and the back rest is too small for her. The bike responds well and with 1100cc's has loads of grunt when required even with the big screen. I feel comfortable riding it now, once I had made new brake and gear pedals it was a lot easier to ride. how Guzzi get away with the pedals the way they are beats me they're just "wrong" and spoil a good bike.

Strengths

Plenty of power, looks nice, easy to work on, ok for most parts.

Weaknesses

That damn brake pedal and gearchange had to go. I modified both and now it's a good bike to ride ( I'm 6 foot and not slim!!)

Overall Review

A classic bike you can be proud to ride. Italy to Uk in a day? yip I've done it and had no aches after around 18hrs riding (with stops for food/drink of course)so in my opinion as good as you could ever need. A bike with soul....

Strengths

I love the traditional air cooled V twin,the chrome,the paintwork,the flexible motor, and the years of history behing every Guzzi. Performance is brisk should you wish. An active UK owners club and admiring looks from most folk who stop to look at the bike finish it off for me..

Weaknesses

Finish generally very good but with some exceptions. Guzzis warranty system lacks customer care and speed.
