MotoGuzzi LeMans My first experience with the 850 Le Mans was as a 10-year old. My best friends sister was seeing a motorcycle gang leader in the late 70`s & I was offered a pillion ride. It blew me away & I have always wanted one since. I bought my 850 Le Mans (Mk1) last year & it still stirs that same excitement that I felt as a young dude. The torque on these things is amazing, you would not think that the bike is over 20 years old. It handles very well & the sound of the pipes are out of this world. My only real gripe is the Italian electrics, Moto-Guzzi really could have spent more time on the electronics. I was recently cursing them after riding through a downpour & she died. I had to wait beside the road for over an hour while the electrics dried out, but a small price to pay to ride a work of art.... My advice, GET ONE NOW!!!!
