I'm moving away from my Vespa and back to a Moto Guzzi. I've really enjoyed it, but the rides I take around Northern California tend to be 250-300 miles days. The Vespa could handle that, but it's the 60-90 minutes of freeway to get to the base of the foothills that is the killer. Besides that, I have a strict "Two Bikes in the Garage" policy enforced here in the household and my Honda Africa Twin my do-it-all bike.
Mechanically, the scooter is flawless. The glovebox has some scuffs where the previous owner had a bag hanging. There are also a couple of scratches on the front fender that I tried to touch up, but they do show in the light. The rear crash bars had scratches on them when I bought the bike and I just sanded and painted them black with some satin black Krylon paint. Cosmetically, I would rate the scooter at 8.5/10.
I bought the bike from a couple in San Diego about six months ago for $5,500 on FB Marketplace right after they did a belt and oil change at the 6,000 mile mark. I'm looking to get back what I bought it for, so it's selling for $5,500 with 7,100 miles on it. Since purchasing it, I've added:
- carbon fiber engine cover
- USB power plug
- black levers and bar ends
- gas cap
- front rack w/ clamp
- rear cafe rack
- front fender guard
- had a second key made (and matched them to the top case)
- Cheeky Seats cover (original seat is fine)
- rain cover for the seat stored under seat
- Primavera top case
- New rear tire at 7,050 miles
I also have, not installed:
- Pair of Black Leg Shield Beading Edge Trim
- Canyon Dancer straps
- blacked out blinker lights
I've done plenty of long-distance purchases, so if you want it shipped, I can help out with that. FB Marketplace kind of sucks because people keep throwing out prices that are crazy-low.
