Oh, so you are a bit Swedish! Yes here are many wonderful roads that are perfect for motorcycle riding. So it is clear that you should come here to explore your roots, beautiful views and the bends that are waiting for you . The best time of year to ride a motorcycle here is of course in the summer. But it naturally depends on the experience you want.

OK, I've got the 1200 8V and it needs a lot of work below 4k. Not just the popping at 0 throttle but the surging at steady state throttle below 4k. Very annoying but it seems expensive to get rid of as Guzzi does not have a map and those who have developed one want a lot of money for it.

I don't have a Griso myself, but if yours is stock MG should have a correct map for it. I suggest you query the folks over at http://wildguzzi.com/forum/index.php?board=1.0 someone will have an answer to your problems.

There are 4 maps for the 8V Griso. 01, 02, 03 and 68S. My '09 8V had the 01 map and it had similar issues. You want either the 03 which is what comes in the current models or the 68S which is for off road use only.

My dealer charged $50 to check my old map and download the 68S. There is no reason to pay big bucks for an aftermarket map.

My "new" '97 Centauro

Just picked this up on Saturday. I refurbished a customer's '97 75th Anniversary California and received this beast as payment. A good deal for both of us. 6776 miles, but neglected and mistreated. Working on getting it back into shape little by little.

Before:


Mold stains on the tank:


The Afterbath:

Other than the seat, that looks pretty nice. Going off road with those tires?

There's just the right amount of work to be done. I can ride it but lots of things need to be attended to. I love wrenchin'

It was sidecar tug for the previous owner. I like the knobbies since I do actually go offroad with pretty much every wheeled vehicle I own. I don't care for the seat either but ironically that's the first thing my in-laws said they liked when I brought it home. I'm going to try to find a stock black and white seat and maybe a SP seat or pan, too. I'll probably get a much smaller windscreen and remove the front crash bars as well. (I hate crash bars).

I really would like to lose the floorboards and heel shifter. I can't believe how much play is in the shift linkage. I doesn't appear to be worn bushings as much as the actual design. I'm not a fan of slop. The gas tank goes CLUNK when I go over a big bump so I assume there's some missing rubber underneath.

I'm going to give the linked brakes a chance but I'm pretty sure in the end I'll un-link them.

I may swap out the side case for my trusty old Happy Trail aluminum panniers in the background. Zombie killer Guzzi.

Lots to learn as this is my first Goose.

Maybe you could make a bay window for your house out of the old one
