My buddy stopped in at Woodstock last week to look at the new Guzzis, and we know how that went!   He said the salesman told him that Piaggio was demanding that they carry the entire Vespa line, and they just weren't will to do that.   Why Piaggio would be so thick headed is hard to understand?

I sent an email to Piaggio customer care, about the lack of dealers in Chicago, and received an answer from Leonardo.  I will give them credit, I have reached out three times with questions over the past several months, and each time received a timely response from Leonardo.   To paraphrase, he said they are working on getting new dealers in Chicagoland, and that he would forward my concern to the regional rep.

Considering southern northeast Illinois (southern cook, will, grundy) has lost most of it's non-HD or Indian dealers, this will be interesting. Other than Rich's Yamaha in Lockport, everyone else is gone

I don't think they'll find someone for the full boat. Unless that's all you have and you don't have to keep up the stock. Not going to happen with their reputation on dealer relations.

Thanks Matteo.  I got the answer to my question whether or not the USA was to get LED turn signals.  I will order them to replace mine when it comes in.  Soon I hope.  I did hear from Enzo at Cadre, that mine is serial #10.  You will love the bike.  I got one of the first Ronald McDonald ones in the country and have been very pleased with it - except for the red frame.  It doesn't do anything 100%, but it does everything 90%.  It puts a smile on your face whenever you get on it.   :boozing:

I rode the new V7 850 last week.  It is a fine machine.  It takes everything about the 750 - III version and improves it.  This goes beyond the additional power.  Seat - wider, better; Clutch - easier pull; suspension - much better; somehow the peg to seat ratio feels better, feet lower compared to seat height.  Also, somehow, to my eyes, it even looks better and more of-a-piece.  The blue is stunning.
