The Swiss Army knife, I have always wanted and have enjoyed it.

Have always loved the Guzzi and had come close prior on a V7 but the lower HP numbers had put me off due to my riding requirements.
But once the V85 arrived with a. significant bump in power I was truly interested.
The V85tt reminds me very much of the original GS models.
I like it’s style, and blend of simplicity with modern and the ability to do some light gravel while being a comfortable travel bike.

Did you buy one?
And while you’re reading, check out Screaming Heads. Old Nipissing Road is a perfect road for your bike and the sticky in this forum has a bunch of good roads as well.
Looks good. Be mindful if you have never been on Southwood Rd 13 (near Bala), that it is quite twisty with pretty crap road quality. Expect to have frost heaves in mid corner as well as gravel, sand and potholes. Slow right down for the two railway crossings - they are in poor condition.
