That really seems like a fun trip, and a heck of a deal if you were planning on buying anyways.
My thoughts exactly. If I were planning on buying a V100 I would definitely do the Ozarks trip. $1250 extra for the trip and 650 miles on the bike, is worth it to try before spending $17000 on the bike and never falling in love with it.
A buddy and I signed up for the Yellowstone trip and are taking our wives. I rented the V100. This trip is now sold out. You have to reserve within a few days of announcement. Yellowstone sold out quickly last year as well. I test rode the V100 at AF1 Austin last weekend. It is a great bike. Look forward to riding on Yellowstone trip. Spite's Corner just did a review on the V100. See link below:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=njhOQc4-iOoWe did the Moto Guzzi Experience AR trip in fall 2021, and it was awesome. Piaggio sponsored a great trip. And, you get a special discount if you purchase a new V100 and V85 before end of 2023.
The Moto Guzzi ride experience is back for 2023 with rides in Yellowstone, Smokey Mountains, and the Ozarks. Last year they used V85TT and this year will be V100 Mandellos. https://www.motoguzzi.com/us_EN/mg-exp-2023/On a lark I looked up Yellowstone as it's on my bucket list. Long story short (and encouraged by my understanding wife) I booked that event and will spend 4-days riding around MT and WY on a V100 Mandello. Should be quite the adventure!
Cool! You going to use that discount to buy one if you fall in love with it? You will love riding around the Yellowstone area. Are they planning to go up to Red Lodge over the Beartooth Pass?
Does it sound expensive to you guys?It includes 5 nights hotels and 5 days of meals and the bike rental... I dunno. Sounds pretty good to me.

I did the one in California in 2021. It was fantastic. Run by a bunch of young guys from Piaggio marketing. Led by a professional rider. Well planned over excellent routed. Did mountains, canyons, desert (including a little light off road), and PCH. Good lodging. Excellent meals. Great fellowship with other Guzzi enthusiast (and a couple that had never ridden a Guzzi before). And I got a credit out of it that "forced" me into buying a new V85. Just Do It!
How is the new purchase handled?You go to your dealership with proof of the discount?
I have been using hotel points for personal use for 20 years. I ran out of points in 2022 because of $&@?/, and now have to swallow $125 a night stays which is why I am trying to get back into camping. Personally, I can eat for an average of $20 a day. Gas for 300 miles a day average would be around $25 a day. Add incidentals and Iím under $200 a day staying in hotels. Drop down to camping and now I am down to under $100 a day. Of course sharing a room or campsite drops it down to around $100 / $75 a day so traveling with a friend who is willing to share a room makes hotel rooms appealing. 5 nights shared would be $300. 5 days food $100. 4 days riding at an average of 200 miles about $60. So, around $500 with incidentals. $1000 extra for a guide? If I were planning to take advantage of the $750 discount then it would be worth it to meet other Guzzi enthusiasts. Otherwise, not worth it. Of course you have to consider that your family income is at a whole different level than my family income which is going to affect our perspective on expenses.
You're a little light on the hotel costs. 21C in Bentonville starts at $210 per night. Rates at the lodge at Mount Magazine could be up to $220, depending upon which rooms are reserved.And they're Not eating on $20 per day. They're going to spend more than $20 per meal.I've lived and ridden in The Ozarks for nearly 30-years and have had my share of $20 days (food and fuel) and $49 nights (no tell motels).This isn't one of those trips. Sometimes it's nice to roll First Class.
I think the trip sounds like you would be hard pressed to do the same on your own dime for (much) less. My only difference would be riding a lot more miles on a 5 day trip. I am no Iron Butt, but 100-150mi/day seems like a lot more managed itinerary than I would be looking for. For the cost of food/lodging/bike rental or transport, doesnt seem easy to beat on a dollars and cents basis.Also, any motorcycle trip into MT that doesnt take you to the Shonkin Sag and/or Flathead Valley is a non-starter for me But of course I am biased having lived in Greenough and Helena
The itinerary indicates there are scenic stops along the route for things like Yellowstone River and Old Faithful. I'm sure these stops are more for photo ops than bio breaks/rests. I intend to just take it all in and enjoy the 'experience'.
