I'm Ad B from the south of a fairly small country in Europe, the Netherlands.
And yes, I drive a GRiSO, a GRiSO 1200 8v from 2009.
I'm driving motorcycle from the day I became 18... (a century ago...) Nearly 37 years ago
I have driven all kinds of Japanese stuff, the last 20 years before I saw "the Guzzi Light"
a special build Harley.
Why a GRiSO??
It was nearly love at first sight in 2006, when I saw a GRiSO 1100 in a Guzzi bike shop.
It took 4 years before I could leave my HD. I knew every bolt on that bike and why that bolt was at thát place.
I had built it myself, so there was only ONE. An importing issue with me...
I left my HD because I missed the fully "Joe Bar feeling"..., think you know who/what Joe Bar is...
My GRiSO was nearly 1 year young with only 2200 km (1375 mls) on it.
I did a lot of stuff myself on my G12, I'll explain in the proper topic...
In the second month I owned my G12, I bought a special made T-shirt with the text:I don't know if my GRiSO is the best bike... But it's the best bike for me!!
That reflexes my feeling, my love for this awesome and beautiful piece of machinery, this bike.
My Joe Bar feeling is back!!
Okay, I'll keep my mouth shut for this moment...

The explaining of my work on my G12 will come in a few days or so...
