I still want one though...





So I bought a Ducati instead
Love that bike too, which duck did you get?

Harley's are not the only bike out there!!!! I like motorcycles and I like many brands and models. I like to ride on two wheel's. If you share the passion, you wouldn't mind what kind of bike your'e son rides as long as it fits him. Yes, there is many good reasons to ride Harley today but it wasn't the case from the beguinning. Harley is a trend, a Life style, a good access to dealers, parts, fun to personnalise. It's fun on the bike and off the bike. Altough, I find that riding a stock Harley is not that exciting. It start to change when you put some aftermarket pipes.

Moto Guzzi has their own charm and you should be proud that he is not following his father and has his own taste and has his own identity!

I'd say you raised him pretty good!!!! Go son!

Looks like you did a fine job of raising him Nevada. He has a mind of his own, and is wants to do something different. Personally I don't have anything against any motorcycle, we all have different likes and dislikes. Would I buy one-No, but then it's not my choice. It's all good...

I don't know much about Moto Guzzi but if Italian bikes are anything like Italian cars he should be prepared to dump a lot of money into it for repairs. That said, it's a nice looking bike. Harley's are my bike of choice but I've owned other brands and they're all fun to ride.

I bought the Diavel Carbon. Here's a pic of my bike...



Best bike I've ever owned, hands down. And if they had the availability for some sort of forward pegs and storage... I'd never need another bike. Ran like a raped ape.

I think Moto Guzzi's are awesome bikes. Lot of style, great engines, and different. Kind of like the RG's!

Input please if you got it.

Your son probably wants the Guzzi for the same reason we bought our RG's, their different! Both my son and myself have Guzzi's in the garage in addition to our Harleys. They're simply a v-twin in the other direction.
