You managed to find three Guzzi dealers?

I think he is enjoying the sun in Greece currently, lucky bugger. Yes Brian, three dealers (one now ex - Streffords), all within 50 miles of me and all with issues.

I think I know one of them Chris. They filled my V7 II gearbox with 1 litre of EP80W mineral oil...
... and couldn't be bothered to handle a warranty claim, which in the end was sorted via another dealer.

I'm interested in seeing how MSC in Stapleford (Notts) match up; has anyone been there?

Is MSC in Stabo a new MG dealer?

I use Antonio down at Didcot
hes magic
he always goes over the bike and does it properly
sometimes I have to leave it for a few weeks as he is so busy
theres a reason he is so busy
Nigel at NBS is very good as well, I trust him implicitly, he rebuilt my bike after some plonker messed it up

Correct! I've always lived around Beeston, I try to get over to the Notts & Derby meet when I can and the Shepshed meet, depends what time I finish work... Not sure if you go to either of these? (I'm terrible at remembering names!)

I thought MSC was a scooter-only dealer (the clue's in the name of course ;-), but it seems Piaggio are targeting scooter riders for Guzzi sales. Let's hope Guzzi doesn't become a purely "fashion brand".
There's even talk of a brand new MG dealership in the city centre, I think I saw that on the MGCGB forum?

PS. "Stabbo" is even more appropriate these days, given the level of knife crime Shocked

There was me wondering  what does galvanising mean in relation to dogs  , then I re read the thread....
