In 2002, Guzzi owner and enthusiast, Uros Blashko decided to ride his ES all the way from his home in Slovenia to Australia. It wasn't the first meg-trip for Blashko, as he had previously taken his Quota on a year-long ride across Africa and South America.
A Quota 1100 ES featured in the forgettable 1999 German movie 'Straight Shooter' about a former French Foreign Legion sniper who wreaks havoc. The Quota supposedly served as the villian's ride!
