It's a helicopter Very Happy

Oh yeah, and it's me Cool

Wim Adriaens is the name. I'm from Belgium, Antwerp region.
From the day the 8V was introduced, I'm a wild fan of the GRiSO. For me it's the most beautiful (useable) motorcycle ever build.

I started riding motorbikes about Mid 2002, starting with a Blue Bandit 600. Afterwards I rode a nice -used- FJR1300, then had a MG 1200 sport (8V) for 3 year which I traded in for an Aprilia Tuono V4R. Unfortunately that last one dropped a valve and "died" too early.
Since I was in love with the GRiSO for several years (but for some reason I never got to the point buying one) and my dealer proposed me a generous offer (he had one "waiting" in the showroom), I finally decided to turn my dream into reality.

And well... everything what's written about the GRiSO is TRUE! From the first km it felt so natural. I already knew the 8V from the Sport and while riding the GRiSO all pieces fell in place. So here I am. Hopefully for a long time this time!

Greetings from Belgium.

Thank you for the warm welcome.

We planned a 10 day trip to Italy the end of May. And I'm looking forward to it.
Just need to solve that luggage issue. I've noticed Hepco has new semi rigid side cases for it's c-bow: Royster. I like the look of them. Might be a winner for me.

Oh, and I will get pictures. Weather is nice now so I will get plenty of opportunities to make good photos.

Greetings Wim.
It's good to get a Belgian on board.
I lived there for two years as a young boy. Outside of Mons (Casteau).
Congratulations on finally getting the Best Motorcycle you can enjoy.

Meanwhile, I got some less bulky turn signals. I hope to get them installed next weekend.
And I already switched to smaller adjustable levers.

Guzzi rear luggage rack is on it's way and the small Guzzi flyscreen is expected by week 18.

On the phone pictures the top case looks bulky. But actually it' the smallest Givi one and it's not that big at all. I'll grab my Canon and will shoot some decent ones.

Thanks. It's brand new. Unfortunately, because of daily commuting, I can't keep it that shiny all the time.
I made some more pictures with the Canon.
