    The Breva 750, has an 18 liter tank, that was why I chose it, over a Nevada with its 14 ltr tank.
    Anyway, once, around the 4 corners area, I managed 180 miles, after missing a gas station earlier. 180.9 M.jpg
    we just started to hiccup, as I found a gas station, somewhere in Utah, from memory.
    Longest trip I ever did,twixt gas stations !!!

    Yes, I would really like a V9 Roamer, with the V7 22 ltr tank.. Im workin on it .
    Unfortunately once again, Im sort of stuck in a situation here in Europe.
    Hopefully Il be able to get out to the US later this year.

    If you're going to compare the V9 to the V7 ya gotta do it with a V7 gen III for a fair comparison. That's what I did before I made a purchase.

    I found the V7 III to be far more comfortable for me then the V9 with the feet forward position. On the V9 I found shifting more difficult and my shins hit the jugs with my feet on the pegs. .The V7 surprised me with the ergonomics that fit me very well and a seat that good for 800 mile days. I also found the V7 was a better handling bike, perhaps because of less trail. For me the V7 III wins, it was no contest, more comfort, better handling, less vibration, greater range(both fuel and butt!!) ..... what's not to Llke? ;)

    Can't wait to compare the V7 III to a V85 Stelvio.... yeah baby, bring it!!!

    Ah , Thanks, I never even thought of that, as I have not yet sat on the V9 Roamer.. Never thought a Guzzi would have a feet fwd thing .
    Thanks again, that definitely made me re think things "!
