    Adding info for my beast- ZGUKZU015EM112728, @Motoitalia Fort Collins CO fall of 2015. Odometer was at 84 or so and now is at 25,000 plus.

    Dropped it two up after bouncing on hidden object in slippery red clay puddle ... needs soap detail cleaning now. Just took tank off for first time to check wires and tighten oil to cooler banjo bolt and anything else I could find. Love this machine. On the fence re my next tire. Have had two sets of Scorpions which canyon corner Well and commuter to DENVER Well. Might try a 60/40 TKC 70 set next

    Well, I guess I'm a Stelvio lover to the core. I traded my '14 Stelvio for a '17 V9 Bobber, but I missed the Stelvio so much that I'm buying it back from the dealer. I'm keeping the V9, too, so I'm selling the '75 850T and the Excelsior-Henderson. Thankfully, my dealer (Sloan's in Murfreesboro, TN) is being gentle with me and I'm only having to pay a reasonable penance for my indiscretion.

    Nice, i have already decided that i will never get rid of mine, the lost value is just to much and it is the longest i have owned a bike and still love it:), i would rather stash it in the corner then sell it.

    my former dealer would have raked me through the coals to buy it back, lucky you:)

    I bought my 2014 Stelvio NTX on eBay from a guy who lives in Minneapolis. I flew from San Jose to Minnesota. Did the deal, and rode back towards California. Turns out the best part was the ride. Great Motorcycle. So nimble and light. Love it.

    Mike here. First time Guzzi owner. ZGULZU011GM200226. 2016 NTX Vulcano Rosso.
    Purchased 10/7/17 from Pro-Italia in Glendale CA.
    Traded a F800GS with almost 98K miles on her. Would have ridden it to 100k but had to jump on the NTX deal as they are not making them any longer and I have wanted one since 2013.

    Welcome, Mike. You will love your Stelvio! I had a 2014, traded it off, missed it so much that I bought it back from the dealer!

    Congrats and welcome to the GT Forum and Famiglia. You are going to love it. Best Guzzi built to date IMO, and I own two.

    ADD ME TO THE NTX FILE:

    I'm Len Orrico, Cowichan Bay, BC, Canada with Stelvio NTX
    ZGULZU016CM112170
    I bought a new 2012 in April '13 and have passed 65,000 km. Love it. I hope they bring the Stelvio back. It's ideal off road (as long as I don't drop it) and great for 2-up on the pavement.
