My stepmom loves her Monza. So much that she had it shipped over from Australia when she moved here. I don't think she's ridden it in years though. My father, the Guzzi guru, hates the damn thing.

If you have the time, check out Brewster County Road. It's a nice ride, outside of the Park. However, last time I was on it, some mining company had shut it up, and you had to detour onto ranch roads.
