I've only managed about 100 miles, so far too early to comment, but......

I'm so pleased with the change so far, the Stelvio suits me and my riding style much better 

Just do it, you won't regret it!!

No longer a lurker, now an owner! Collected my Moto-Guzzi Stelvio today. Baptism ride in strong winds and heavy rain. Bike was absolutely fantastic, loved it

I was fairly active on the FJ/FJR forum
Asking loads of questions and looking for recommendations
Have owned various Italian bikes before, so know what can happen!!

Hello!
I had an FJ1200 for a few years and was a regular on the excellent FJ/FJR forum. Think I may recognise your username?
Never actually fancied an FJR, although in theory it would do everything I want, and reliability seemed to be excellent .Went from the FJ to an early VFR800, which is one of my all time favourite bikes. When years of all year round abuse got too much for it, I decided to finally get a Guzzi - a Breva 11 in my case. Had quite a few electrical issues and found out how long it takes for a mechanic to fit a new clutch, but love owning it and riding it. Guzzis can't compete on performance figures but give you a great feeling to ride and always go better than people expect.
