The only thing I hanker for is ABS, had a minor incident on Tuesday when a car carved me up and had a slide up the road and thinking ABS could have saved it but?


Thanks, good to know! It sounds like experience counts as much as strength at the end of the day. I still consider myself a beginner so it's no use to go for a heavier bike as long as haven't got a very good grip on the lil' Breva. Which is just a fantastic bike for beginners, with a really nice engine too. You don't find this combination that often for that category of bikes.

Quote "Hi and welcome finp, I too have a Breva the poverty model no ABS, heated grips,heated seats, on-board computer,electric screen, but its a great ride and have come to love it, its like the Alfa Romeo of the car world you have got to own one, my last bike was the BMW K1200 LT, so this Breva seems light in comparison, Carl 

haha... So true. I've been told that my bike is basically truck mechanic! And it was meant as a compliment, just to be clear!

Thank you!!!  I don't seem to get the info then (I took a Moto Guzzi club GB membership). But it could be me. I have to say I haven't  been on and off only because I was watching series and eating chocolate but also because I travel a lot for work. This year, I've been away for 6 months and I'm likely to leave for another 6 months in March. It's great, I don't complain, but it really doesn't help keeping track of people and meet-ups!
