Don't have any real reason to get rid of the GPX, but nonetheless I am start to ponder what I could replace it with maybe sometime next year. First up, I know the two bikes I've listed in the title aren't exactly modern, but this to me is a good thing. My main requirements are something which is cheap and easy for me to work on myself, which the GPX fits just fine, however I have found myself wanting more torque on more than a few occasions (usually very tight and steep uphill corners). The GS is on the list since I suspect they're going to be phased out next year with the new emissions regs, so I'm hoping this might mean I could get a good deal on a new one (I also have a fondness for air/oil cooled Suzukis). However, The 750 Breva is a bike I looked at buying new a while ago, mainly due to the fact that the nearest dealer was 6 hours away (and it seemed expensive for what it was). I have however noticed a few used Brevas with low kms (ie 30-40k) down around the price of a new GS, and given I now live only 15 minutes or so from a Guzzi dealer it is looking like a definite possibility. Guzzis are also something I've had something of an interest in ever since I first saw a V10 Centauro (which is still in my top ten list for best looking bikes ever made). I'm already reasonably familiar with the GS, but would certainly be interested to hear from anyone with familiar with the Guzzi as to how it compares in terms of performance/rideability and of course reliability and cost/ease of maintenance (particularly with regards to the dry clutch and shaft drive which I've not had experience with on a bike). I'm also finding conflicting info about the Breva as to whether it had a 5 or 6 speed gearbox, and the fuel system used (I've seen references to carbs and two different injection systems). So if anyone knows if there was any changes to the model sold here over the years I'd love to know. Finally, feel free to suggest any other bikes that might be worth a look. Main use will be commuting and touring - so something comfortable and stable at highway speeds, with the ability to carry a reasonable amount of luggage (ie at least as much as I strap to the GPX now) is really what I'm looking for. So this does rule out motards, as fun as I find single cylinders to be, and I'm not exactly a fan of the lack of cornering clearance on a cruiser. In terms of budget I'm ideally looking at something around the 6-8k price range unless I have a good reason to spend more.
