WoW! Man that looks great! I'd love to own one of these someday, if only they would improve their dealer network in Canada.

RonS, I did get the Griso. I finally got it back the day before yesterday and it was storming. I did get to put 150 miles on yesterday morning, then it starting raining again and it still is, and is going to keep it up the next two days :(

But long story short, I absolutely love it. I am on my phone now, but the next time I get in front of a computer I will give a better review.

The fairing on your bike looks great btw.

.

If the Griso is a rainmaker, would you mind riding it to Kansas, we certainly could use the moisture.........

That is a nice paint job on that Griso fairing! Beautiful looking machine.

green giso

Bought a tennie green one Thursday from Ducati of San Antonio. I know there's one in Austin and talked to a dealer in Wichita, Kansas that wanted $12,025 out the door for a new one. Went on my maiden voyage this morning....a 120 mile breakfast run. The bike is fantastic and I'm working on the suspension. Whoever said "rough enough to get blood in the urine" wasn't kidding. Wish I had taken a screw driver with me.

It will take some time to get it sorted out but the 8V engine is a huge improvement over the 4V that's in my '08 1200 Sport. This Griso is probably the most beautiful bike I've ever seen. Lusted after it for several months before finally pulling the trigger. Glad I finally did.

"rough enough to get blood in the urine"

That'd be me. Yeah, I thought I'd snapped my spine on one piece of rough road

I just got done doing about 1000 miles on it. The suspension is smoothing out a bit or I'm getting used to it. The bike really feels like an extension of your body after just a hundred or so miles. Everywhere I stopped people would come over, look at the bike and want to talk about it. Most didn't know what it was but they seemed to really like it. The old timers all new what it was and they gave it a good looking over while telling stories of the Guzzi's of old. It was fun talking to them. It's a very unique bike out on the road.

How well does that wind screen work? Also what slip on muffler did you use? I am test riding one of these tuesday.
