PostSubject: Another MG convert from California    Mon Oct 12, 2015 1:40 pm

After pissing off the admin in my hurry to join up with multiple requests, I am the great unwashed new forum member. Been thru dozens and dozens of motorcycles over decades of two wheel addiction, the GRiSO grabbed me quickly. Have a red 07 1100 model with about 40k miles currently .

Because I know it will come up soon enough, the Cereal KLR name came about for my previous love of the Stone Age simple Kawasaki KLR. Reside in San Francisco Bay Area and hope to retire far away from it within five years.

Gidday Jim,

Welcome, lot's to assume here!

I used to work for a company head quartered at Brisbane, some years back. Like a lot of organisations it has gone to the big company burial ground; great product though, a real shame.

Thanks for the welcome folks. Ah beautiful Brisbane CA, most industry has been run out of town by taxes and land prices now. These places where a working man could afford to live are just gone.

I am starting to embrace my cranky old guy status with more zeal than anticipated lol.

Hello and welcome......it's still good to be excitable,impulsive, and even impatient. Just not incontinent...

All the best, Ian/Blue.

A friend that is ten years older than me laughs at my malady complaints, most of his responses include " just wait"...

Cereal KLR, amico mio

Please don't talk about Ex's unless the house fell on them recently. especially if it's the one they took

I also have a slightly modified Rosso GRiSO G11 with 40k 'Merican miles.

You might look up Norcal Guzzisti on yahoo groups for their rides.

Welcome, KLR! Speaking of ex's ,when I bought my GRiSO a few years ago, I had a huge fight with my wife for buying
it without consulting her first. She's now my ex-wife, and I still own the GRiSO!
Now that's a win-win! Laughing

Motorcycles have cost me more than one relationship, and I can never stop thanking them.

Welcome to the Ghetto, where opinions run rampant and restraint is just a 9 letter word.
