Some thoughts after just a short ride. It fits, you dont sit on the bike you wear it. I like that. Ergonomics for me is good. Its light and nimble steady on the open road at speed. Screen could be bigger. Engin and gearbox is very smooth. Still have to figure out all the electronics. Its very different than any bike Iíve had. It has a good feel and so far no ďo fok wat het ek gedoen nieĒ

A lot of anxious anticipation. But it fitted well and within a couple of meters of riding it I knew it would be ok. Like when I first rode my 1150. You just know.

Its a very different bike to anything Iíve had before. Like they say in the classics, its quirky, but Iíll get used to it.

Nice electronics. Not overwhelming but enough to add to your comfort. Easy accessible and simple to operate. Cruise control, road, rain and gravel mode with adjustable traction control and ABS depending on mode.  And then whole lot of trip data. Display info on the tablet is very good. No guessing what you looking at or want to look at. They paid attention when they built this bike.

Met daai voorsuspensie "travel" gaan jy ook soos 'n gedropte CitiGolf oor spoedhobbels moet ry.  :peepwall:  Maar vir 'n ou oom sal dit seker werk.  Darem meer as wat 'n zimmerframe het. :lol8:

I believe he already has one of those 40 year funds for one of these in his future as well  :biggrin:

@Gerrard - Baie geluk, dit is een freaking mooi bike! Mag jy baie veilige en probleem vrye kilos op die Guzzi geniet! Sal hom kom nat maak wanneer ek nou eers eendag in JBay is. Enjoy! :bar:

A few pics from the ride home.

That motor sounds very sweet and the "Italian Lass" is quite the looker. I love the twin headlights, really has a Baja feeling/look, but with refinement. I reckon Gerard is going to take a while to get used to the technology, besides the fact, that he cannot "Tweak" the bike in the garage as he is known to do  8)  :peepwall: :3some:

It will be a while before that smile subsides, so gentleman, if you want a pic of G-man smiling, your window of opportunity is narrow so strike now :pot:

Thanks G for a great weekends riding, you have truly bought a special machine this time, may you have many months of happy riding  :thumleft:

PS: I won't wish you years, as we all know, weeks is a long time for you to own a bike  :lol8: :lol8: :lol8:

Was it scary as hell to buy a bike you have not ridden? :o

A lot of anxious anticipation. But it fitted well and within a couple of meters of riding it I knew it would be ok. Like when I first rode my 1150. You just know.

Its a very different bike to anything Iíve had before. Like they say in the classics, its quirky, but Iíll get used to it.

Save to say, Iím in love  :ricky:   
I know exactly what you mean. Guzzi's do that to you. Welcome to the club.

Soos enige bike is daar maar nukke. Ek en die ouens op advrider is besig om deur dit te werk. Bv, die bike is ge-map vir ordentlike hoŽ oktaan petrol (probleem wat ons destyds met die 1200's ook gehad het.)

Nou ggoi mens ons lae oktaan gemors in. Dit maak die EFI deurmekaar. Wanneer jy koud start idle hy ongelyk. So lekker v8 grommel. Laat idle hom so bietjie, die EFI doen sy progammering and hy raak smooth.

Nou ggoi mens ons lae oktaan gemors in. Dit maak die EFI deurmekaar. Wanneer jy koud start idle hy ongelyk. So lekker v8 grommel. Laat idle hom so bietjie, die EFI doen sy progammering and hy raak smooth.
Elke koue start? :(

Met elke start. Moet eers bietjie idle om wakker te word. Daars 'n klompie lesings wat hy neem om die fuel mix reg te kry.

Hoewel ek al gatvol geraak het vir ou bikes wonder ek soms of dit nie maar beter is nie. Punte, plugs en carbs. Ten minste kan jy iets daaromtrent doen as daar fout is.

Het net gatvol geraak om dit heeltyd te doen  :lol8:

Dis die probleem met ons brandstof gehalte in Suid Afrika, Mercedes C klas se diesels het net so gesukel en moes later aangelas word vir ons mark.
Hier in Amerika in die Midwest lyk die petrolpompe soos 3r wereld (nie naastenby so mooi soos SA) maar die beste gehalte brandstof.
Is dit nie ironies

Dankie. Nog besig om deur die bike se groei pyne te werk, maar geniet hom baie.
Hoop die pyne is by die ruiter en nie die bike?!! :o

Soos enige bike is daar maar nukke. Ek en die ouens op advrider is besig om deur dit te werk. Bv, die bike is ge-map vir ordentlike hoŽ oktaan petrol (probleem wat ons destyds met die 1200's ook gehad het.)

Gerrard, what's the difference between the Guzzi and the 1150's and 1200's you had?

Will you put it all on newer tech? Or could the different boxer degreed pistons also play a part?

Its difficult to compare. They are very different bikes. It starts with the Guzzi is light and feels like a roaster, but tours like a softroader. Smooth on gravel and does not know about marbles.

The 1150 is a tractor and has its purpose in life... to pull a sidecar  :biggrin:  As a bike the Guzzi is a far superior DP bike, although despite the electronics, it is still very basic.

You tell me to choose a bike, I'll take the Guzzi.

The 1200 is a piece of shit. Don't want one if you give it to me  :lol8:

Afhangend wat jy koop so tussen R220k en R250k. Dis nou nuut. As dit die bike vir jou is, is dit elke sent werd. As jy my paar maande terug gevra het sou ek nie so gesÍ het nie.

Ek sou gedink het dis Pokken mal  :lol8:

Ek dink as hulle so vier of vyf jaar oud is sal die prys baie sak. Ek twyfel of ouens hulle as primÍre adventure/toer bikes sal koop. So kilo's sal laag bly.

Self het ek 'n ander grondpad bike so hy sal nie kilo's jaag soos bv op my 1150adv nie.
