    I had a 750 Breva as my first bike after a 36 year gap between bikes. I was originally thinking of getting a GS 500 Suzuki, but the quality and looks of the Breva won out. Here in Oz the Breva was $4000 more than the Suzuki. In 2 years I did 56000km on the Breva, putting on Hepco and Becker pannier racks and a top box rack (40 litre panniers and a 50 litre top box), Barkbusters, a Givi A620 screen, and not long before I sold it, Ikon front springs and Ikon shocks. The best of these was by far the Ikon suspension. It made an already good handling bike much better. The bike was super reliable and so much fun to ride. I used it for everything, Round town, twisties, and highway work. It dealt with all of them well. If you get it serviced regularly, and change the oil every 5000km you should have no problems with reliability. The only thing I did have problems with was after the 2nd front tyre change, I got a shake in the bars. I have since been told that the Pirelli Sport Demons need to be put on in a certain way to eliminate this shake.
    Hope this helps

    Just saw your post so my reply may be after the fact. Did you buy the Breva? I have a 07' Breva 750 which i bought with 2000 miles on it and now have 11,000. Fantastic bike which has proven to be bullet proof. Since i do not live close to any dealer i have learned to do all the maintencae myself, with the help of forum members and the book Guzziology. Let me add I had never worked on a bike or for that matter a car prior to owning the guzzi. I don't think you can go wrong and will have a blast riding it. I ride almost every day and have taken it on trips all over Florida.
