I have always wanted a Moto Guzzi and want to love them even now and thus I am terribly sorry for all your trouble with this bike. I am resigned to owning a Guzzi only as a recreational ride, if I can ever justify such a thing, not ever as my main daily rider. Too bad.
Your ride report on the other hand has a nice mixture of falling off the cliff drama, strange weather, near constant mechanical failure all illuminated by determination and sheer grit. Very fun read, thank you.
