There once was a man who was involved with a woman who had many of the same characteristics of your Moto Guzzi. She was a beautiful Italian...but...required a lot of attention, was moody, quite unpredictable, and expected a lot of expensive things to keep her happy.
In spite of the occasional thrill she gave the man
, He ultimately realized that his friends were much happier in their relationships with less exotic women. They also had more money to spend on travel and other things that brought them pleasure. After much thought...the man ended his suffering and sold his exotic beauty to a passing band of Gypsies.
Toad, maybe it is time to end your suffering and replace your difficult Italian beauty with something that would make life more pleasant.
