I'm trying to remember what happened here...I think in a bizarre way the wife offered me the chance to upgrade the bike...I think. Heres what happened..

Phone call from Honda - ' wanna upgrade the NC750 to an africa twin? It'll cost because blah blah blah'
    Me -  no ta...maybe later
Wife asks what that was about. I explain that Honda have an offer on for a better bike at a bargain price but more than I'm paying now. So, why buy the other one when you could have had a better/bigger one? I says because it was economical  and cheap to pcp.   A lengthy silence follows and I can see her thinking.  So, why don't you buy a new Guzzi?

What...er.. what? Well, she says, 'for the price of the old guzzi you're fixing and the monthly on the honda you could buy ' pick bike of choice'...new from guzzi' .

Hindsight eh? 
Honda nc750x ...hmm - a superdream for the 21st century? ZZZZZZ But the goozi is back running..yesserii jim bob. Fun time

Just agree with her and get yourself a new bike.
Even better ask if she likes this (new) one.

Now is the perfect time to bag yourself a new bike bargain, but not the best time to sell a bike.

Well Gugsy that 09 Stelvio they were all saying was a scam is nearly finished. It's come up pretty well and is now a good honest bike. It will still be the cheapest Stelvio I've seen.
 
Just bought myself a 2016 Stelvio NTX with 3000mls. Picking it up tuesday
