Thanks. I'm leaning toward the Mistral, probably will go with the SS conical v. carbon fiber.

Tomcat, congrats on the new Griso. I also picked one up this summer and love it. Mine has a Mistral SS pipe and it looks and sounds great.(IMO). Saves a lot of weight and gives a cleaner look.

Of course, you can't can't go wrong with a Termi ($), I have a pair of them on my Monster 900 ie, and it sounds awesome. 2 nice choices you have.

Congrats on your new Griso as well. I'm glad you like your SS Mistral...that's most likely the way I'll go. Do you run with the dB Killer in or out? How's the volume both ways compared to stock?

Tomcat, I bought the bike used and AFAIK it does not have the db killer installed. The sound is great, not too loud and no droning or irritation when cruising. I have the stock can ( in the garage) but doubt I'll mount it any time soon.

Will be trying to get some GoPro vids in the N GA mountains at the end of September; if I get some good sound recordings, I'll post them up.

As rocker59 pointed out, we only got the 4 valve (2V/cyl.) motor in our 1200 Sport. The 8V makes more torque and HP, but not 50% more. It's more like 17% more HP. (110 for the 8V vs. 93 for the 4V).

Talking My Moto Guzzi Griso SE Techno

I know several of you Moto Guzzi purest will throw up when you see my bike, but those of you who are into the high tech stuff will have a more favorable view.

Anyway, I have a blast riding it!

Here you go: http://photobucket.com/GrisoSEtechno...view=slideshow

Enjoy

I won't throw up, but I'll be half way to my destination before you're plugged in and set up.

I've gone that route in the past. Too many wires for me. Just in ear headphones and mp3 for me these days. Nice clean installation of all the components though and of course it's a beautiful bike. Looks very much like mine

Moto Guzzi Thread

I stumbled into a 1993 Moto Guzzi Strada 1000 this spring, and am having a ball learning to ride it. Anyone else around here have, or know of a Strada? I'd post a picture but don't see how to upload an image which is on my computer rather than in a hosting service. Can that be done, or must images be linked?

Gotta link the images.

There are a few Stradas around. Chuck in Indiana has one.

You should check in over at www.wildguzzi.com/forum

For daily riding I just have the one wire that goes to my helmet. It's only on the colder days with the heated clothing that it gets a bit "wirey".
