    Thanks for the reply! I've had 4 Guzzis, my favorite a 06 Breva 1100 I put 63000 miles on. The Mandello looks like a great ride.

    I had a Cali 1 850 40 years ago excellent and I have ridden Griso and V7 850 but not enough power , the madello looks superb I sat on one in showroom, as soon as it warms up Im test riding one for 2 hours ,, If it has the power  it will probably trump the Kawasaki 1000SX

    Thought I'd chime in here.

    I'm 25.

    Had a few bikes, the first being a Honda Deauville 650.
    Ended up trading that for a ZR7S. Sold that as I really needed money after becoming a Paramedic.

    Bought a BMW G310R (god awful bike)

    Traded that in for a Versys 650 (wrote it off)

    Bought the Z900 and here we are. Love this machine. Still getting used to it though.

    I'll be 54 in May of this year. 

    I am a bit surprised that the group has so many mature riders.  Really cool to see that.   :028:

    33 years young.  Started riding on a Suzuki GS500F, then moved on to a Ninja 636, CBR600RR, finally an FZ-07 before getting the Z900.

    I assumed most Z riders would be young guys so it's great to see a cross section of ages. I think about what a fantastic machine it is and envy all the young people with many years of riding ahead of them. I also am so thankful for us older riders who appreciate a light clutch and throttle giving us more years to ride even with weaker grips and maybe some arthritis setting in.  :084:

    52 here. Started on a Z400, then a Harley Street Bob 114, now a Z900.

    Just did a Triumph demo day....sure like that Speed Twin 1200. May be adding that to the garage soon.
