There's something irrestible about them that just gets under your skin & once you've caught the bug its very hard to shake off. Owners fall into 2 categories = those who got shot fast, & then those who went on to own many, often very many!
Such is their addictive nature I'm already yearning to try the new 1000cc one anounced recently although I haven't had a new/modern Guzzi for 12 years!
Bare in mind 2 things they say about Guzzis = 1) they're only ever 95% finished, the rest is up to owners to do, 2) they've been going bankrupt since 1921 (and yes this is their centenary year!). And yet I still think they're one of the world's great bikes (once sorted to owners taste!).
Yes, I'm an addict/gluton for punishment. If anyone knows the cure, please help!
