If you like being the guy on something different, here is a nice way to stand out. Full of character, history and heritage, Moto Guzzi is the oldest European motorcycle manufacturer still in constant production. Guzzi's are described as an "acquired taste" full of idiosyncrasies that set them apart for better or worse from other motorcycles. The most obvious thing to jump out at you is the longitudinally mounted 1064cc v-twin engine which, in theory, should allow for a shorter wheelbase. As you can see, this didn't exactly play out. The Sport 1100 is big, it's long and it's heavy. It is not quick to turn, but once it's cranked over, it holds a line extremely well. Contributing to this stability is the outsourced WP forks which also hold Brembo brakes.
This particular Sport 1100 is showing a very low 2300 miles and is in near flawless and original condition, down the to 20 year old OEM tires (you may want to address this if you plan on doing any actual riding). It is striking to look at, and like many Italian bikes of the era, would make a great Sunday cruiser, but is probably not very practical for daily riding.
