If you DO go to 4 wheels, I can’t speak highly enough about the Alfa Romeo Stelvio . . . wow. Italian, AWD, and over 300hp with just a couple mods. NOT MV Agusta type of thrills, but still fun. Rest easy, @mv raptor , and feel free to message me if you’re looking for good convo!

I had a alfa 33 P4 (permeant 4 wheel drive), now that was a fun car, especially in the wet

Also sorry to hear, MV Rap.

Hope the recovery is well, although sounds as if it'll be a while.

If you don't mind sharing, what was the cause? Bad roads; a minor lapse of judgement?

Get well soon mate, just get a bike with a good steering damper. A car will never replace the bike!
