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.

Didn't they give you a cap and t shirt at IMI when you collected the bike?

Having been an old Alfa owner and red Husqvarna I too immediately thought of infamous Italian electronics  :o  But then MotoGP bikes use Magneti Marelli state of the arts Italian technology ... not many gold wheels though  >:D
