    Bought this while recovering from hip surgery. 2020 model with only 3,752kms. Previous owner added Wilbers suspension F&R plus lots of other bits and pieces from SW-Motech and Wunderlich and then decided he wanted the 1250GS after all. I've been looking for a replacement for my 1999 1150GS and was considering the Moto Guzzi V85. Although I love the look of the V85 I just figured on the open road it would lack a bit of power where the R nine T has plenty.

    Got about another 2-4 weeks until I can ride the bikes again. Hopefully the weather here in Canberra will improve by then.

    Cheers Carizo.

    I went thru a similar delema myself and ended up with a 1200 gs l/c. Looked at the guzzi and spoke to guy picking his up, he bought it without a ride as our local dealer wont let you test ride. I decided to wait for the new version with tubeless tyres before making a desision. A month later i was at the shop and the guy was back to trade the Guzzi in.....not enough power on the road but loved the bike. He bought a Triumph 900.

    Thanks PB. I've always longed for a Guzzi since I first saw a SP1000. If I had more money and room I'd have one but I'm limited to 2 and very happy with the SG and the R nine T.

    I am enjoying the BMW...love the electronics and suspension. My Street Glide is still the long distance choice.
