But, as you say, preconceived notions work both ways. How can you say you don't hear what I'm hearing when further down in this thread Fossil says he went back and rode his V7 on the very same roads and it felt much more "nimble and agile"???
I like the tank of the V7 Stone, the hard parts of the Roamer, and yeah, I kinda dig the tires on the Bobber. Put those together and call it a Boner? I've really got a boner for the Boner.
The acceleration is brisk. MUCH stronger than that of my 37 kW V7. It follows the throttle absolut directly. But this means that it runs into the limiter all the time. And then there is that nasty little red light in the instrument... And this bike is brand-new. It has not loosened up in any way. Following an accelerating Ducati Scrambler was no problem at all.
Dangit. You are correct. Understand this is not easy for me, but I cede my point. My bad. Btw, you are brilliant, BP. Your initial post that only said Fossil's comments are similar to what other reviewers have stated is/was spot on. It's just that I don't think those comments about the bike's handling can be applied to anyone beyond those same reviewers
The red light I mentioned was indicating overrevving. Please remember it has no tachometer (funny! in German the tachometer indicates the absolute velocity of the vehicle...). The bike really has a good acceleration. A yellow light indicates the working of the antislip. It could be seen fairly often.Interesting: yesterday I again was at my dealer to order some small parts from Guzzi Garage for my V7. There I met some riders in my age (about 60 and a bit older) who just returned from a testride with the Roamer. They were Harley - owners (Road King and the like). And they were looking for something smaller, more agile, but still - well - not "normal", but valuable in a way . They were very pleased with the Roamer.

Oh geez, Kev. No need to be so gracious. But thanks.
Actually for the record it's very easy for me to cede my point.......on the rare occasion a worthy counter argument is put forth.
Notice here that you do not deny that I am brilliant.
Rumor has it that Stephen Adams still doesn't fit Dusty
Yeah well, 7 foot 14 or summit. Thunder doing ok I see too.
The V7 in comparison (!) seems to react a bit delayed to my throttle inputs in the immediate comparison. The V9 reminds me of much stronger bikes (I e.g. had a Ducati Monster 1200 from my dealer for 2 days). I don�t want to claim the Roamer is nearly as strong as the (wonderful) Monster. But the way how it reacts is comparable in the character. Both Guzzis are stable at speeds around 140 km/h. The V7 has advantage here because of the more forward-orientated seating, the Roamer because of he bigger front wheel.
