    No pics from yesterday and today, but I've put 168 miles on the Gran Canyon in two days fitting riding in between home remodeling and weather.
    This is the earliest in the year I've ridden since 1978 when I bought my first road bike a brand new Yamaha XS750.
    I also lived in the Detroit area then, the winters last a lot longer here in Northern Lower Michigan.

    I'll see about pics of the Gran Canyon out and about tomorrow .

    I recently offered a guy $4500 for one with over 15,000 miles. Seems like a relatively fair offer, maybe even close to top dollar. What do you G.C. owners think is top dollar for one of these?

    I think 4500 is quite a fair offer for that many miles if it was well taken care of. Mine only has about 5000 miles on it, maybe a little more, with the Hepco Becker racks, HB engine guards, Staintune exhaust and HB luggage plus a lot of other extra's it would take $5500 for me to part with mine. But I'm not looking to sell at the moment, although I have kicked the idea around since I don't ride it that much. But every time I do the Ducati torque with the Staintune exhaust convinces me otherwise. :D

    $4000 to $4500 would be a good price

    I did see that, but it was already gone. The one I've been looking at has been for sale for months. It took me a while to convince myself I want to get a G.C., but I'm sure one will come around one of these days.

    My first GC I bought in 2008 for $ 4500. The second I bought in 2010 off e-bay locally for $ 3050. Both were in excellent condition.
    There was one for sale last year close to me for $ 2900. I could not sell mine last summer for $2600 with an almost complete parts bike.
    So yeah offering $ 4500 in my opinion is very fair if not on the high side.

    Some have asked about hand guards and the Gran Canyon so I finally got some photos taken so I will post them up here for all to see..


    [​IMG]

    The bars are Pro Taper Trials Hi 7/8" bars and the hand guards are Bark Buster Storms, top clamp is a HDB

    The bars are not quite tall enough for standing but are far better than stock and could stand to be and inch or so farther back.

    and from the side

    [​IMG]

    the guards do mildly tap the fairing at full swing so I will need to adjust the stops or better yet get some handlebar spacers that move the bars back that inch needed for proper standing.

    Anybody have good idea on replacing the plastic with aluminum?
    I saw one time that you could use a wr450 skid plate

    Here's link to the yahoo group:
    http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/Cagiva_Gran_Canyon2/messages

    A member is trying to organize a group purchase of custom skid plates and center-stands and maybe a high fender...

    Meanwhile I just realized I know a bunch of motorcycle shops that do excellent aluminum welding... so the option of just going ahead and making one seems appealing too...

    Nice job on the ones shown in this thread! :clap

    Thanks guys for the advice I know .i should have done something a long time ago right after I destroyed it a couple of times.
    but since I bought a second Gran canyon this year I want to keep from breaking the new one.

    I check out the yahoo group mainly for part conversions.
