OMG - I did it, I really did it. I just picked up a brand new '15 Stelvio and put it's first 66 miles. So, I'm giving birth to a Stelvio. First ride (Friday in Seattle), was Awesome! Heavy Rain - Big puddles - some Gravel road - heck, I even had a few miles of sunshine. So, this first ride was like a "rite of passage" for the new Stelvio. I pushed it's face through plenty of adverse weather and roadway in it's first ride.
I've been a biker for 44 years and this is my 1st brand new motorcycle.
Been riding Loop frames for 38 years and still have my awesome ole '74 Eldorado California.
I'll be looking forward to learning the ins/outs/tips/tricks for the Stelvio. Glad there is a forum. Thanks to Guzzi-Tech

Nice one!
Only ever bought one new Bike in 37+ years of riding ('82 CX500EC).
My '09 Stelvio feels like a new Bike to me, only 20,000 miles, which for a Guzzi is barely run-in of course!

I prefer someone else to cover the depreciation and add a few choice accessories for me . . . ;)

Congrats Indeed Sir,
I have also ridden Guzzi for many years and owned several. Late in my riding career (66 years old) I decided to buy one bike to replace the stable residing in my garage. One bike that could satisfy my need for a sport bike, long range touring and commuter all in one package. I bought a Stelvio and have never looked back. Its has done it all to my satisfaction for three years now and I have no need to look for something else. It has had its issues well documented here and other places and all have been taken care of in my own garage with the long distance support of the excellent dealer I bought it from, MPH in Houston, TX. You have the advantage of buying a 15' model that has had the issues taken care of. Enjoy and ride it like you stole it. The bike will love you for it.

Congratulations on your new love affair ;) I picked up my new 2013 in Sept this year and only have 2000 miles on her so far but looking to put a lot more on her. I know you will love it.
