Another Guzzi option is to take some time and look for a V-11 Sport-here's a bit on them
More room, more power, less money and most owners get them sorted out (much like we do on the Bonnys). Guzzi's feel very different than anything else and it takes a few hundred/thousand miles to really gel with them. But if you have the Guzzi gene hidden in you it's worth it. In my experience a V-11 would make a nice complement to your Speed 3, both of which I've owned.
If that Cali 1400 had mid or rear sets, I'd buy one. Now. Wait, yesterday. I'd but one yesterday.
I just don't like forward controls.
1. Buy a Bonnie T100
2. Replace the seat with a Corbin Gunfighter or similar, raised .5-1 inch.
3. Install Thruxton length aftermarket shocks in the rear.
4. Ride and enjoy the extra 15hp, smoother engine and smoother transmission over the V7 (from what I've heard).
