I have a guy interested in buying my HD Sportster, so I am thinking about buying a Moto Guzzi or BMW. I will not cafe the bike as the objective is to have something my wife will ride on with me. Saying that, I would love the Guzzi Lemans. I remember my uncle had a early 70's Eldorado that he and his rather plump wife road all over the country. It was the first bike I rode at over 100mph. Rock steady.
The wife likes Gold Wings, but I am not old enough for one of those yet! My brother has a HD Geezer Glide that she liked sitting on, but they are mucho dinero and I don't have any tattos anyway.
Sooo, is anyone here familar with the bikes to offer some advice as to models, etc. Maybe someone here even has one for sale? I do not know a lot about either--I really like the looks of the pre 69 BMW,s but they are more collector than rider bikes, and very pricey. I like the 70's style Guzzi, but I don't want the right side shift.
Please tell me what you know about the Bimmers and Guzzis--reccomendations, problems, etc.
