Hello,

proud new owner of a V7III Stone. Got back into bikes after a long break -- just in love with this bike.
I am supposed to do the 900 miles scheduled service in about 300 miles..
The Guzzi dealer where I bought the bike is almost 1 hr away, so I was thinking of taking the bike to a local Ducati shop, which has very high ratings.

I was wondering however if for warranty purposes is recommended ( it is not mandatory in the warranty document ) to only go to the official Guzzi dealers for the first 2 years.

Anybody had experience with warranties and the Piaggio group USA ?

Thank you in advance!
Giuseppe

Don't quote me on this, but I'm sure others have said it's OK to use a non Piaggio dealer in a situation like this. But the only way to be certain would be to ask Piaggio USA.
 
It's all different in Europe where the law does permit you to use any recognised dealer.

^ What he said, again not to be taken as gospel but from looking at American forums, I gather the rules may be more relaxed in the US simply because of the vast distances that are often involved merely getting the bike to a specific brand name dealer.
