    Moving On From The TnT

    Well it might be time to move on from my TnT 1130 Sport.

    I've owned it since 2007 and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience. However I find the clutch is too heavy for my aging hand and I have been looking at other bikes. Today I was offered an ok trade in on a well kept Guzzi V11 Le Mans and I'm thinking of saying yes. The sad thing is that Guzzis have held their value but Benellis have not in Australia. There are some good buys to be had if you are looking for a Benelli out here.

    I took the V11 for a spin and it's as nice as I remember it. The spine frame Guzzis were good handling machines and the later V11s with the six speed box are very civilized. No it's not an insane hooligan like the TnT but it handles, stops and revs nicely.

    Mike

    The Guzzi is a nice bike, but I wouldn't have thought there would be much difference in clutch pull between the TNT and Guzzi. Actually, if anyone had asked me, I'd have guessed the Guzzi clutch would be the heavier of the two.

    The Clutch on the V11 is as light as a modern Japanese clutch.

    Always a sad day when this happens..
    I wonder if anyone has modified the clutch activation lever at the engine by making the leverage arm longer to make it easier to hold the clutch in ?..
    I'll be looking into this as I've two spares to give it a go .
