Same here, but a bum hip in my case, currently shopping California Tourings.
With 1" drop pegs, my knees are OK. Not great, but considering I usually ride the Griso for shorter hops, it's good enough.
I recently added a Dart screen to the Griso similar to the OEM Triumph one on the Scrambler:
Long time lurker & soon-to-be Griso 8V owner here (if I'm ever allowed to leave my house again when this virus situation cools off). I created an account just to reply to this amazing bike. (Cool forum btw I think I'll stick around!)
But for the love of god please tell me where you got this fairing. I think I'm in love.
I got it from Amazon and it is an Emgo Venom fiaring. I had to do some trimming where it hit the turn signals so I could get it to lean forward more to get the air up. No big deal with a dremel tool
Thanks so much!
Welcome to Moto Guzzi you will love it these bikes have a soul,can't wait for you to give us a report.
I finally succumbed to Griso fever last year. Nothing like it. Love it.
I keep lurking on this thread.....looking at a Griso as a potential second bike. Love the v-twin, nothing extraneous and such a sexy bike.
Mines for sale, but a bit of a fly-n-ride from Canada to TX, which isn't going to happen now a days. Only selling it due to hip issues. The Griso has a standard riding position and I just can't get comfortable on it, so I just picked up a new Triumph Speedmaster with forward controls.
I tried lowered pegs but they didn't really change the ergos of my legs/hips. If there was any option for forward controls on the Griso I would be keeping it.
Great bike, lots of power, good handling, loads of character in a good way, and unique. If you get a chance, buy one, you won't regret it.
Looks awesome! Got any more pics?
Here you go.
looks like you have the two bikes I am considering. Great deals on both although the Griso will be about $4k cheaper all said and done. Mainly just 1-3 hour local street rides for me. Gravel capability would be nice but not critical. 6’3” as well which I think might be an important difference. I’m really curious about MG’s, have owned 3 Triumphs and generally like them (‘04 Tiger 955, ‘14 Scrambler, ‘18 Tiger 1200).
If you could only have one, which would you choose?
If I had to choose between the two, I'd pick the Triumph. For me, it's much more versatile, and more comfortable as well. I use the XE for commuting, forestry service roads, even 725 mile day trips to WNC.
Good thing I don't have to choose, because I really enjoy riding the Griso.
Long shot here, but I can't access grisoghetto from work -
Has anyone here experienced, heard, or read anything about the Matris M46KD Rear Shock with hydraulic spring preload when used on a Griso ?
Tenni Green................................simply perfection in color.
Enjoying a beautiful day on my Griso.
The Griso has moved from Florida.
WNC is much better for the kind of riding I like.
That's a beautiful bike & backdrop
Yep. Life is GOOD in that picture.........................
Yes, it was.
But now I'm back in Florida, and scheduled for a knee replacement on Friday, so "Life is Good" didn't last long.
Give it about 4 months, and it will be VERY GOOD again.
