I've admired that exact bike since release. Last spring, after selling my 08' 1800 Wing, I had cash burning a hole in my pocket and I visited a local Guzzi dealer and if they had a V7 on the floor in what I call "dusty green" I have a serious hunch it would have went home with me.
The dealership had lost the franchise and had no new bikes, so I walked away with nothing.
Later I found a barely used/well farkled 1200GS that I truely love.
But the desire is still there for the Goose. Maybe someday the R65 and R80 will make me grumble someday and I'll turn the two of them into a V7.
