Hola Kids


[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]


Fresh meat hailing from UK, and based in Spain...

New to Guzzi's after aquiring a well used GRiSO that had been laid up for a while and needed a new parking spot. A short time later money exchanged hands and its now on the road as my daily ride, racking up 60 miles a day. Easily my favorite bike so far...  My GRiSO is a 2007 1100 , so not so fast, but she aint slow... Currently sporting a Termignoni (?) pipe and K&N pod filters direct on TB's ... more of that later

Loving the engine, handling, looks etc etc.... still getting used to all the attention it generates...


Most recent previous rides , Triumph Daytona 955i (still in garage, awaiting TLC), Honda Hornet CB600 (RIP my old friend)

Will be doing all my own servicing and repairs... have been lurking around several Guzzi sites, but reckon on starting here.


Work done so far:


  • New Battery
    6 hours cleaning Syrian road tar from entire bike.... (job not complete...)
    Oils all changed after being in storage
    New Tyres
    Guzzi Diag to turn off the lambda sensors... (seriously recommended...  a small and easy change but makes a huge difference....Laughing afro )
    Generally getting a feel for the bike...


To do list:


  • Full Service (inc valves and balance TB's etc etc, rest TPS etc)
    Helicoil stripped gearbox drainplug thread
    Fix minor oil weep from RH head gasket
    Sort out a 2nd key... mmmmmm



Projects I dont have time for , but would love to do :

  • Play with Guzzi diag and Tunerpro and build a custom fuel map
    Experiment with standard airbox set up...
    General cosmetics (repaint & touchup, all round)
    Make and fit Corbin style gunfighter seat (already have a damaged 8v spare to use as a base)
    Removable backrest to keep my Chica happy on the back....

¡ Bienvenido al ghetto, el Sr. Butter !

Love that Orange livery on the GRiSO. It's a shame that never made it here in the states.

Yep , it was the folder name ... has to be GRiSO (or anything else, with different letters jocolor  No )

Just some pics from my mobile today after a fast run up the mountain. Was back to back with a quick spin on my old Daytona 955i which goes to a new owner later this week. Forgot how fast the Triumph was....Twisted Evil  The buyer´s test rider was visibly shaking when he came back. Hilarious. Anyway, the GRiSO is still the superior bike for me, more enjoyable, rewarding and satisfying (was about to say fun, but then power wheelies / slides and missile like performance are fun too, just not my kind of fun anymore)  

Orange color filter effect because I think it looks cool and moody...

Greetings MrButter.
I too bought a 2007 1100 this past summer.
Could be a bit more powerful?
yesssss
But it sure is a kick in the pants!!
The GRiSO was made for me.

I agree, that color was cool.
Right now, you can only get the SE black devil.
I like to see more color schemes and I don't mean black, white and red only...
