Thank you. I bought it, rode it, and i'm amazed with what the bike makes you feel, it's another world. Even the short ride on the griso 850 wasn't so impressive as with the 1200!. Loved the tork, the gearbox ( what a smooth precision, my god!), and the whole rough presence from the engine. The breaks are great, couldn't ask for more in power and feel, but the steering is still to be improved by changing a bit the suspension settings, but the base proved to be solid, well planted, easily changing direction, but all in its own majestic, voluptuous way of doing her business. I felt special to ride this bike, it looks like she had always something to say, but there is already a deep and raw connection between us...a predict a long relationship.
Now I know what you guys have been feeling all this time...
About the photos, I live sharing photos too, but haven't found how, yet...

Hello Moto Silva

I'm from England, live in the rainy North, and i've also owned many bikes in my life. I'm 59, but feel like 89... and act like 19. Smile  In June I'll be taking a holiday in your beautiful country.  Enjoy your Moto Guzzi!

I'm 64 but feel about 80, except when I'm on the bike.

Only got this photo up to now, having problems, but I got it.
This was the first ride we made together, she was magnificent in the bends on beautiful B roads we have around here. Confirmed all the best we can expect from her! These tyres were more then a year standing in the shop, but never caused any slides or lack of grip. 
Got a little Givi bag for the passenger seat, looks lovely and handy. 
Cleaned her meticulously after the ride, with silicone spray. Never wash my bikes, they're like cats, they dontd like water.
Keep riding Hug

Hello Peter. Hope you'll act like 19 when you come to Portugal Tongue
You'll have lots of sun here, but hope you're not coming in the end ofoJuly or early August, too crowded down here around that time...except if you're on a bike, of course!
Give me a call if you're coming to the Algarve, we can grab a beer and talk about Guzzis
