Is that a play on words?  "Scooteria"?

Could be, I don't know what else they sell.
Actually, "Scuderia" meant "stable" in Italian, but Enzo Ferrari, back in the '30s, used it for his car racing team, as he was into horses, too. It's now an accepted term for "racing team"

Just got finished breaking in my C5 Classic. I couldn't be happier. Hopefully I'll be seeing a lot of my Bay Area RE acquaintances on the North Bay ride this summer. Cheers. BTW yeah, it was Munroe. I deal with car dealers every day at my job...most of them are very pressured, but honest. I don't like it when I find they are not. I kinda felt that way about Munroe. Scuderia West is a totally different animal. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Good to know you had a good experience at Scuderia! Like an Idiot I sold my G5 to buy a (cough, cough)Harley. Gthe list goes on ans on. ranted its a used one, but you wanna talk about maintanence costs and reliability? Now I have a bike I cant ride at all because I cant afford all the things it needs. Runs well now but tires, seat etc.... Anyway, Im considering a C5 as there arent many G models around it seems these days. Everyone seems pretty happy with theirs. Also I htink the California bikes have better quality control.My guess.
