I just got back from a short ride to Roosevelt Lake.  I came back through Globe and as I exited the Queen Creek tunnel on the 60 a beautiful bright red GRiSO passed me going in the opposite direction. I was on my weird blue 1200 GT. I know there are several Arizona GRiSO riders on this forum but I don't know if you post, but you should know your bike looks stunning, aw hell you probably already know. Made me want to hurry home and take my GRiSO out for a spin. Very Happy

I went back out today on my GRiSO. I rode up to Jake's Corner just South of Rye and had lunch. It was gloomy but dry. Your right, it's great to be riding in January.

I like that place and most of my bikes seem to drag me out of town by way of Usery pass to Bush highway to the Beeline straight to Payson to the Buffalo bar and grill for a burger, its a quick out of town route for me and it gets me into the elevation especially in the summer time here Thumbs Up

For 12 years I used to ride with a group of about 10 guys, all Ducati's, Aprillia's and a few Hinckley Triumphs. Most of us lived in the East valley. But we loved the ride to Yarnell and on to Jerome, Prescott etc. As we got older and the group got smaller we began riding to more Easterly. Globe and Superior mostly to avoid the Winter cold. We also do some dual sport riding in the East part of AZ also. But I really do miss the Westerly run on occasion.

I've  been east and in general like the roads and country side, but dang, have to ride through most of Phoenix to get there and that part is no fun, especially when you come back in the heat. :p

went up to Globe and back last night myself, tried out Beetles map for factory can, the whole bike was much improved, great weather, light traffic, great Hump Day!!!!!

I love Prescott, but being in the east valley I get there by way of Payson, then Camp Verde and across, I agree the thought of crossing the valley is no fun

My buddy and I did the Globe to Roosevelt to Jake's Corner today. Had lunch at Jake's and met some bikers from British Columbia. Really nice guys.

Nice t-shirt. You should attribute that quote to Quai Chang Cain...

I retired in 2009 at 59, never looked back. Trade money for time, trust me, it's the best way. We got to get that shirt made by the way, Maybe Zazzle or Café Press?

Enzo, you're a lucky man. I'm 57 with 1 and a half bikes to my name and still renting but that's because the ex got the lot, including custody of the cat. I loved that cat (Ccino).

Anyhoo, things are looking up, I'm up at 4am every Saturday to go roast coffee with a mate.

Chris is also a bike nut (& collector) and current ride is an RSV4 Factory, SE, Carbon

Currently I'm re-tyred (Michelin man), hopefully by 69 I can join you.

ghezzi, fantastic website by the way. Coffee is a weakness of mine, I will be ordering some from the website this weekend. I have admired your Guzzi since I started coming to the Ghetto. Your mate has a very cool bike, love those RSV4's.
Cheers

The RSV-4 Carbon is insane.

Start with a 'Factory' that already weighs nothing. Then strip off everything plastic and un-necessary and replace what you have to with carbon fibre. Throw 150 RWHP into the mix. Light blue touch-paper and retire immediately. Tell yer mate to take it to Sean in Toowoomba. He can get 'em to crank out close to 200 at the rear wheel with little effort I believe. Fucking bonkers!

Funny story, I was up at the importer for training a couple of years ago and they'd sent a factory big-wig out from Noale to give us a pep talk. While some of the other blokes were being shown a Stelvio's insides I got bored and went off and was standing idly staring at an RSV 'Carbon' on another bench.

The big-wig suddenly loomed up out of nowhere and stuck his head over my shoulder and said "Ahh, so you like the RSV-4 'Carbon'? Is pretty, no?" I took my glasses off, stuck my tongue out and licked the bike from the tip of its pointy tail to the headstock. He looked genuinely shocked and blurted, "You Australians! You are disgusting!" And wandered off, quickly!

I'll take that as a win! Twisted Evil Laughing

And for coffee lovers in the UK, here's where I get mine. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] The Golden Crema is very nice. I get them in Beans and grind them when needed. They keep their flavour longer that way. But any grind is available.

Glad you guys like the design, but I can't be bothered to produce and market t-shirts. I'd rather you take it, print it, and wear it proudly.

Enzo I like the look of your silencer.. Is it a low carbon Mistral? If so what map are you running? DB killer in or out? Cat in or out? What does it sound like DB in/out?

Lots of questions.. Thanks in advance.
