Another 1957 vintage here. Having ridden since -73 I used to ride japs, I guess they could be labeled as sport-tourers, 1972 CB 750 included. By the turn of a new millenia I bought myself a LM I -78 and then there's been no turning back.

After some eight years with a V11 Rosso Mandello, it was time to change for something newer. I pondered of a KTM 990 SMT or even a KTM Adventure 1190 because the tarmac byroads in Finland are getting bumpier every year by lack of maintenance but I just could not see myself astride a big enduro. They may be sensible but they lack appeal and soul. When have you looked at a GS rolling by and thought ' WAU, what a beast'? I thought as much.

A Norge? Too BMW RTish. Best of the travel sofas, anyway. Breva? Well, after a LM I and V11, ugly as hell. GRiSO was just the ticket for the adolescent rebel still lurking somewhere deep inside me. It has the looks and it has the soul and it is a joy thrashing around in small curvy roads. It simply got the fire burning inside again!

I'm right in with the crowd at 56. It looks like I have a while before I age-out though!

They say 70 is the new 50 ...

If that's the case, I'm almost 50!

Did my 50th HS reunion a year ago. Do the math.

I love the GRiSO, and describe it as "the old man's sportbike." All the whoopee I need - any more would get me arrested or killed. I rode a friend's Yamaha liter bike recently - way more thrills than I need - I really appreciate a bike that keeps both wheels on the ground when I twist the fun knob to 9.

I rode Hondas in college, crashed one and then discovered sailboats and didn't get back into riding until I sold the last sailboat ten years ago. Since then, I've had two Guzzis - a Cali Stone and the G - and a Honda ST1300. The Honda was an awesome road machine with no soul. When there was only room for one bike, the G was obviously the keeper.

Still have a boat - haven't been without one since 1971 - can't see that ending anytime soon either. Cool
