New to a GRiSO (4 months in). Slight up grade from a 1980 1000SP. When I say upgrade, I still have the more mature bike, I cannot seem to kick the temperamental, frustrating, wonderful feeling of not knowing if it will either start or get me home. The B10 cam and PHF36's provide plenty of go, and after rewiring with a Motogadget m-unit, crank driven ignition, and as much LED lighting as I can, it it quite the rocket.
The GRiSO gives the same immense rush and bottom end shove, but with suspension, brakes and tires that can cope. Not to mention looking great, even my wife thinks so.
Now if I could just persuade everyone to let me have highway99 between Vancouver and Whistler to myself, I would be completely happy.

Just waiting to get it back from Gord at Chilliwack Motorcycles, ( he had 3 Tenni grisos in at once) after the first 1500km in my ownership.

Welcome Bellyhook! There is a bunch of riders and group rides that cruise up there almost everyday

out of Vancouver. Hang out at the Starbucks at the mall, have a coffee or three, and head back out.

I may even get up there today, if I get my ass in gear! Anyway, welcome aboard!

Welcome Ben,

There are a few of us in town. Dave's-i-know and I (both with Tenni's) have been in your neck of the woods on a number of occasions recently. Where do all the bikes go in Squamish? Wink

Bought mine from the Gords in Chilliwack in 2012. Good guys for sure! Perhaps we can get a few of the other Grisos around here together for a few rides net season. The Sea To Sky or out into the Valley is always damn nice way to spend a day!

Enjoy!

What year and color bike do you have..is it a Tenni??

That's the GRiSO spirit, Keener! Living up to your name....mamma and papa would be so proud... Smile

Hopefully we can keep the torch alight through the winter and really see the lay of the land come spring!

(for some reason I'm channeling a farmer on this post!)

I'd be up for that. I may....may be moving back to NY next year but will have a better idea in the spring, say around March. If I don't, that sounds great! I have been wanting to get out of the area on the bike. Will speak with daves-I-know and perhaps there might be a few others in the NW area might want to get on board.

I indeed have a Tenni. It is sitting in Gords shop, and as of 5 minutes ago it is waiting for the Cam follower upgrade. Gord reckons 3 weeks and it should be back again.
I would love to head out when I get her back.
