The first time I went to the Guzzi factory there was a chap picking up his brand new Norge. It had German plates on and he was like a dog with two coc... Very happy anyway ! I don't know if they still do it but the other way would be to buy the bike and register it in Europe, ride it and then ship it. It would technically be a second hand bike you were shipping into the 'states so may save tax ? Just a thought, but it would be a hell of an adventure !
