The 390 duke I test rode a few years back was horrible, you really had to work it hard to get it to turn corners. Hard to start and keep it running from cold took over 5 minutes to move more than 100ft no joke, pulled well upto 80mph, terrible in sidewinds.

Sounds like yours had too little air in the tyres and too much in the intake?

I could probly get one of the first ones around 2015 if I put a little extra on top of Nelli (provided it sells) oh about that just posted an ad for it.



Bella Italia done today, was meaning to do a massive pic dump but apparently my camera takes too big pictures for the server so that will have to wait. Did resize this though, according to the people there we`re missing about five or six bikes from this picture to have every single Benelli motorcycle in the country in one picture. Count the Tornados. Felt like a fucking rockstar getting the bike from the row early, crawling through the yard as frikkin everyone was filming me! Couldn`t help but to redline it a few times To put it into context the small park area right in front of our bikes was filled with about half a billion worth of Ferrari

As a side note I was taking the dog for a piss tonight and almost crapped my own pants, take a wild guess what sailed past me? An 1130, the first time ever I`ve seen a Nelli on the road apart from my own and it`s a Tornado going past my own house!

Been offered a trade... 2004 Alfa GT 1.9JTD with all the bells and whistles... Have zero use for one but might be, albeit marginally, easier to lose... and damn is it a pretty car...

You can't trade an Alfa for many vehicles with worse reliability

Umm yea I got a Benelli and hey at least it's not a selespeed. The guy is heading to Norway for two weeks, if I don't get a better deal before that probly gonna take it. It's not for keeps only to have something that's even marginally easier to lose than the bike. TBH I was more or less expecting to get sth like that as a trade offer as you gotta be a bit of an italia enthusiast to even know of the benelli...

Is it just me or is the term "high horse" finding a whole new level of irony with this bike... I'm sad to say this but I'm not gonna miss this thing once it's outta here.



Tail light swapped to LED. Drive light didn't see much of improvement but ho-lee-fuck is the brake light BRIGHT!

Currently on a breather to let the brake cleaner vapor off then re-re-seal the oil sump, get the leaking oil hose off and try to figure out somewhere that would make me a new one on a saturday.

When I did my bike tests, one of the trainers had a Triumph Tiger and one had a Benelli adventure bike and they looked almost identical... but, the guy with the Triumph told me the Benelli is always breaking down. Shame really coz it was a nice looking bike.

Striving to remain dynamic in an ever-evolving environment and shit like that.

Trading for a 15-year-old Alfa?

Could be in for more problems than with Nelli. Alfas are notoriously unreliable.

I had a fabulous GTV for 20 years. First thing I did was shitcan the entire fuel injection system for Weber carbs. After that, I could fix everything myself.

Unless you're super knowledgeable about Alfas, I highly recommend you PASS.
