I think he's captured the essence correctly.

Love the descriptions.

"What follows is based on actual occurrences. Although much has been changed for rhetorical purposes, it must be regarded in its essence as fact. However, it should in no way be associated with that great body of factual information relating to orthodox Zen Buddhist practice. It's not very factual on motorcycles, either."

What a great description. I love it. What is more entertaining......read the questions to the seller and the answers. I even went to the motobastard site. I do have to agree with the bottom photo.

How many redbulls did this guy drink before posting.

CHEAPEST MOTO GUZZI QUOTA in the USA. I think it may be the only Moto Guzzi Quota in the USA.

You'll be surprised; there are a few. In this case his only hope is to sell it on MGNOC. I had a Guzzi, not something to be proud of. My motto was "Moto Guzzi, riding on the hopes and prayers of Mandello del Lario." Mine was built during a labor dispute so they gapped the cam sensor a few thou wider, which drove a few people nuts (myself included). Once I got the fuel mapping and cam sensor fixed, I sold the damn thing and never wanted to see another Italian bike in the garage. If it wasn't for MGNOC I would have drove it into the sea and walked away. This group is the only salvation for Moto Guzzi in the US IMHO.

He's right about the rear main seal and replacing the u-joints every 10K. Odd that he's got so many miles on it. I suppose he's into the pain; some Guzzi owners are like that.

The damn thing still haunts me from the Internet:
