Hacked my Moto Guzzi Quota

I never really thought I would end up hacking the Quota but I finally gave in to myself. I'm somewhat of a sidecar fanatic and I guess it was bound to happen. I had the Quota for 4 years before it finally happened though.

Still needs a few things finished up like the lights and the electric tilt control but I still had it out for a road ride and a bit of an off-road ride. Handles about like what I expected but it actually steers better than I thought it would. I still have plans for a leading link front end in the future when time allows. 7/33 final drive sitting on the shelf that might help things out a bit. Sidecar will probably get paint to match, but that can wait. Time to ride.

Not all of them are hacked, at least not yet! What I do see a lot of them for sale lately. Easy to find a Quota if a person was looking.

I've always kinda wanted a Quota. There's one on the local Craisglist for $2200 but it needs a clutch and has 52k miles on it.

I imagine that hacking them is among the best ways to improve the handling

If the Quota was in my area, my wife would have another quota sidecar rig.

Thank you for the lead, Chances are my wife will be getting a Stelvio instead. We have one in the shop just waiting to be picked up. She really liked her last Qutoa as she rides Guzzi's.
