Hi all,

I just bought an '07 GRiSO 1100 and I want to thank the contributors on this site for their info which helped me make my decision.

I've had an '85 LeMans 1000 and I have a 69 V700 that is coming along nicely so I thought I'd get a Guzzi from this century.

The ride home was fun and looking forward to putting a bunch of miles on it this spring and summer.

If others are riding in the Hudson Valley in NY let me know, I like an occasional group ride.

-Rich

Welcome to the push button era, my newest is a 98, also have some 700's. GRiSO's work the best of the new stuff that I work on.

Welcome, Rich. Loved my 2007 1100 for 50,000 miles - have recently upgraded to a 1200 SE and love the bastard to death.

Benvenuto!

Do follow up on beetle's call for photos. I am his U.S. agent for punishing the who ignore him. Wink

Others here from N.Y., N.J., and eastern Pa., and I get your way now and then. Was just in DWG area last week.

Stretch your new mount's legs by running down to the top of Virginia sometime, too.

Congratulations! I live near Harriman State Park. Let me know when you are ready to ride. Who did you buy your bike from?

Apologies for the lack of pictures.

I ride in Harriman alot, as I live nearby in Suffern.  Maybe head up to the Bear Mountain car show when it starts, I try to go whenever I get the chance.  

I got the bike from a guy down in Queens.  Nice guy only had it for a short while, too heavy for him.  Gave a bunch of new stuff with it, levers, clutch master cylinder, oil , Guzzi filter, new bar end mirrors.  Look like he planned to dress it up and it is pretty clean.

Thanks for the welcome guys!

Aha, Russian guy named Kris? I sold that bike to him in February. He is a bike flipper.

The good news: It is mapped, the swingarm and shock are lubed, the tappets are set and the FI are balanced.

The bad news: The midpipe is cracked and the speedo sensor only works on sunny days.

You got a great bike at a great price!

Exactly, except he said he's Serbian.

Too f*ckin cool! You took nice care of it. Great to hear about the map, swingarm, shock and the FI.

He swapped out the mid-pipe and the speedo worked in a cloudy drizzle on my ride home so I guess I'm pretty golden!

Is it Beetle's map?

I should have just bought it from you if you live near Harriman. What're you riding now?

Serbian eh, nice that he changed the midpipe! The original owner was a old-skool BMW guy. He had a TR6 (car) under restoration.

I only had the bike for 10 months. It was an emergency purchase after selling my '09 G12 and my '75 Eldo spitting its u-joint. No Guzzi to ride constituting an emergency in my reckoning.

The Eldo is back in action and I am now riding '13 G12 SE that has yet to see 5K miles

It is indeed a Beetle map and if you want to bring the bike by for a check-up feel free. I hope Kris didn't fiddle with anything vital.

I'd be tempted to stop by to see your Eldo. As I said I've got a V700 I'm putting back together after swapping the case. Not too many loop frames in my neck of the woods. Maybe when the rain stops.

Dude, really nice Eldo and of course a smokin GRiSO.  

Here is my V700 which should be back in this state by June.

I think I saw you ride through Tuxedo on Rt. 17 one day.  Why is your loop in pieces?  Routine maintenance Wink ?

Probably me on 17. The generator mounting points were both broken off of the existing case so I bought a low mileage case with a crank and rods and now I'm swapping the piston and barrels and the flywheel to the new case.

I should've already done it but life gets in the way sometimes.

Zoinks!  You are a better man than I.

Mine had a little issue with the u-joint.  Fixed now.
