Cycle Lust

(This post is a little off-topic for me here, but I’m still finding my voice and experimenting with this forum.)

I discovered Moto Marin off of 101 while out on a ride last week. This business used to be located off on a side street, but they recently moved to a vacated auto dealership fronting 101 to gain more visibility.  They’ve also begun representing Motoguzzi in the Bay Area (after a previous distributor went under).  I was intrigued by the Motoguzzi Stelvio I saw there.

I ride a BMW R1200GS that looks just like the picture below. I was taken aback by how similar the Stelvio is to the BMW both in styling and stature.  I got a chance to sit on the Stelvio and rev the engine.  The Stelvio has a more growly rumble compared to the BMW, and it felt great, even just sitting there.  It sure is sexy, but I’d expect that from the Italians.  But for now, I think I’ll stick with the fine German engineering of my GS.
