I mentioned a recent road trip from Vancouver Canada down to California in another post. I thought I should also put in a good word for Dave and Fraser, owners of Sport Cycle Pacific in Santa Barbara. To keep it short, they went far beyond typical customer service when asked to rescue my riding partner and his injured 1200 Sport. Stuck on the California coast late Saturday afternoon of the September long weekend, things were not looking good for our goal of Sunday brunch at the Rock Store. Against all odds, they had us on the road again by 0830 Sun morning, after 5 hours of driving, a few hours sleep and a few hours wrenching. Enthusiastic, friendly and very competent folk, we owe them a big thanks. Keep them in mind for any 'Guzzi (or pretty much any make..) related service or specialty bits if you're in the area (and even if you're not!). They know their stuff and are great people.
