In front of my clinic this morning. Take your pick of the NC700X, KLR, SV650

Two of my staff have started riding after taking MSF and getting motorcycles in the past month. The smile on my face every morning kind of convinced them I guess.

I need a Griso 8V SE. Yes, in the weird green with the brown saddle. And I need it now.

Maybe time to trade the 800GS in for a Griso and a 250 dual sport

Oooh, that's nice. Me too! The ladies seem to like them for the poser factor. I'd probably need $$$$ for leather pirate outfits too.

I always thought the Road Glide looked the most poserish of anything in their big-twin lineup.

Until I finally rode one. I could only characterize the experience as a revelation.

Just a comfortable, easy-to-ride-anywhere motorcycle. Don't have a spare 20 g's laying around.... But if I did, it would be at or near the top of a very, very short list.

My wife likes it, too. Maybe next season, if I can find a dealer near me.

That green Griso might be one of the most frequent pics in this thread.

For good reason, if you've ever seen one in person!

I haven't, and I've posted that picture at least 3 times already.


I'm more of a Breva 850-1200 type, but DAMN, that green thing would
do just fine!
