Awwww Man! Just when it was returning to normal...

My local Kwak/Suzuki dealer goes out and adds Moto-Guzzi, and Aprilia to their lineup. They just got their first shipment in today. Tuonos, Moto-Guzzi - Griso, Factory R, CRAP!

This opens up a whole new world of possibilities for further adventure growth, not to mention the track possibilities in the future. I thought I was safe with the Strom, no temptation for any length of time, and he goes and pulls this stunt. I'm gonna have to work on strengthening my will power.

Repeat after me:

Don't give in, the Strom is enough...

Don't give in, the Strom is enough...

Don't give in, the Strom is enough...

Don't give in, the Strom is enough...

Don't give in, the Strom is enough...

Ohmmmmmmmm.................

the italian bikes dealer in nyc just stopped carrying both motoguzzi and aprillia. he just got so annoyed by the parts issue that he couldn't handle it anymore. now he carries only ducs and mv augustas (i don't even know if mvs are italian, but i think so). so, your strom *is* enough...

Look deep, deep into the shiney Griso. You can hear it talk to you. "buy me" she says. Better not disappoint her.

Ummmm... Yeah. I doubt that's gonna happen. Here I sit waiting on my black funding to hit my account so I can pay for the W/T shirts.

Suuuuuure. I never turn down free rides.
Spoiler:
Doesn't put me any closer to actually having something else, but what the hell.
I plan on prodding my dealer for test rides on his inventory. He gets a free "evaluation ride" per machine anyway.

I was in the local guzzi shop today and would have took a ride on the griso, if i'd had my riding gear with me.... Which leads me to another question does anyone know anything about or own any of these?? Very rarely do i ever see one around charlotte. He did fire up several and man!! Do they sound sweet but judging on the numbers off the guzzi sight I'm wondering if they will be a little sluggish... but man do they sound sweeet and loook different!
