At least it will be cheaper than Starbucks, hahahaha!

Actually, the GS is going to pay off the repairs on my truck
Then the LT will go towards a new bike.  I have 5 on my shortlist
Harley Softail Deluxe
Indian Chieftain
Guzzi California
BMW R1200RT (was K1600B)
new Gold Wing

Mark,

Nice to see a Moto Guzzi made your list. 

My friend Jim owns Hamlin Cycles (Moto Guzzi and Aprillia) in Bethel.  Let me know if you plan on taking a ride up for a visit.

I've been to Hamlin a few times.  Great place!  Reminds me of the old Linders.
I'm a fan of Guzzi.  Just a little put off by the cheap appearance of the accessories.

I wish I needed another adventure bike... I've got a 99 R1100R in my basement.

You need to replace that 99 with mine!  I had a 00 R1100R replaced with a Ducati that was crashed and replaced with this.

Accessories on my bike are a mix of items from Moto Guzzi, GuzziTech, AF1 Racing & Twisted Throttle.

Just an update, the Oilhead sold in Aug., just after I got back from the BMWRA rally in PA.
It was a sweet good bye.  But lately I've been eyeing the Tiger 800 XRx and Guzzi V7 Milano.

V7 Milano....I knew you'd come around.  Three seasons on my '15 Stone and love every minute of it.

I'd compare the XRx with the XRt, there's a lot more useable bells and whistles on the "t". Better adjustable suspension and more modes and settings.
