I sold my Ulysses a couple of weeks ago, after ten really enjoyable years of ownership. I purchased a 2015 Moto Guzzi Stelvio this time last year. I donít have the storage space or the time to properly ride them both, so it was time to let someone else enjoy the Uly.

The Stelvio is a very worthy successor. Lots of torque and quirky charm. It is a bit longer and heavier and thus a little less hooligan-ish. Iíll miss those easy power wheelies out of first gear.

Iíd like to thank the BadWeb community for all the help in getting the Ulysses nicely sorted over the years. Because of that, Iíve enjoyed 80,000 kilometres of backroad exploring and loads of week-long trips without worries of the old girl leaving me stranded.

I can see myself getting another Ulysses before my riding days are done, so a few choice parts and accessories will be going into storage. The rest will show up in the classifieds once I start sifting through the hoard.

Thanks again, and I wish each and every one of you good health, happiness, and peace.

Doug

I love the proper color on a Uly. Mud brown! Enjoy the Stelvio! I always liked them but they just didn't fit me.
