    Here's my NTX at work. Bought it back in May. I've mostly been enjoying it riding to work and the kids cut into my riding time this summer.

    Somewhere in Europe last week, Belgium I think. Two weeks of Champagne in Reims folowed by Reisling in the Alsace has left me a bit confused. :)
    1500 miles in +30C temperatures followed by the thunderstorm and rain from hell in Belgium but the Guzzi never missed a beat (neither did the BMW :nerd:)
    First major European run and very satisfied by the comfort but the small fuel tank became a bit of a pain at times (it's an 08 model). Might have persuaded the other half to venture as far as Italy next year after this years success.

    So, this years 2 weeks off was a run down to the Italian Dolomites via Germany and back via Austria. We'd had a few days in Brittany in June but it wasn't much of a test of the new top ends fitted by MG in a lightening quick 6 months last winter as it was just a blast down the autoroute and back. (Got talking to Baldrick at the July Essex MGOC meeting and in his experience all UK top ends fail and he even told me correctly the mileage when mine failed!)The plan was to ride to Trier on the first day using the autobahns and then stay off them until it was time to come back from our last stop in Saarbruken. I wasn't keen on the new cams initially, there is more low down grunt and more midrange but I'd got used to the burst of power at 4000rpm. However after riding mountain passes all day trying to find a path between swarms of GS's I can appreciate the broader spread of grunt. I am happy to say over 2200 miles the bike behaved faiultlessly, even if it was gasping for breath a bit on top of various mountains 2500 metres up. There is another 2000m to the next service but unlike every other holidy we've been on the with the Stelvio the tappets don't need adjusting. Sadly there were only GS's and the occasional Multistrada, only saw two other Guzzi's in the two weeks we were away. A friend recommended Hotel Condor in St Vigilio di Marebbe. It is a family owned hotel and Konrad the owner is a keen biker, we stayed three nights and he gave us some fantastic routes to ride when we were there. He takes out groups of riders and if you have a Garmin he uploads the route for you. Couple of pictures attached but from the Bavarian Alps into the Dolomites the scenery and rides really are something else if you're in Europe it's worth a look.

    time to start doing a few mods I think, added the CARC protector last week and looking for engine bars and exhaust next, must admit I do like the sound of the standard can though.
