Good evening strangers, hope you're all doing well?

The first mainstream brand new bike I've liked for quite a while... https://youtu.be/XFC3CFlIsGY

Hope you're good Clarkey.
This is seriously tempting me to get a bike again, I might have a proper look march/April time. It looks perfect light and not stupid power.

Not bad here thanks, aside from the strange year of course. Hope you ok too?

Yeah, it is really nice isn't it, and they're planning a Tuono version of it, but I've got to be honest, knowing it's over 11k, you could get quite a choice of nice second hand bikes for half that money

If you've got it to spare though, or are due a treat, there are definitely worse ways to spend it. I'd get a go on it right? Lol

When did you last have a bike?

It looks like it's £10,200,still a fair chunk but I'm tempted. I'll see how the reviews are and what's being said on the forums and make a decision in spring. Last one I had was an MT09 Tracer, I think I got shut about 2 1/2 years ago. Work's been silly for the last few years so wouldn't have had any time to use it.

This has caught my eye. If Guzzi don't role out a V85 roadster soon . . . .

I got one early December, 300 miles in i really like it
as you have probably seen from the journo's and video blaggers, its a modern CBR6 with some electronics.
Its comfy, goes well, sounds good and is generally nice to ride when its wet and slippery.

Ahh good on you. It's annoying when people say 'you lucky bastard' with something like this, as you bought it rather than won it in a raffle so likelihood is you worked and deserve it...

But...

You lucky bastard, lol

Glad you like it. You got a photo to share?

I put my order in at the end of summer, so got one of the first batch of 12 and managed a few rides on in it late November.
