PostSubject: Hello from central New York   Hello from central New York Icon_minitime1Tue Mar 31, 2015 7:16 am

Hello from CNY (Syracuse area with a radius of 60 or so miles). I have always admired the GRiSO but never so much have seen one up close. I decided to get one last year and came across a good deal on a new 2013 hold over in Everett,Pa. some 300 miles away from me.I bought it in Dec. 2013 but did not pick it up until May 2014 and rode it home on some nice ,curvy roads through central Pa. It was a cool ,overcast day in the mid 50s but the ride was terrific and the GRiSO ate those curves up . The suspension ,as delivered, was very stiff but I have since adjusted it.
I like the bike a lot --plenty powerful, great handling and very unique. What I say next might bug some but I find that the GRiSO reminds me most of a couple of Buells I had.I would perhaps get a Dart flyscreen and I have read where some paint it to match the matte black finish on the bike-- is there any particular paint (brand,color) that is best?
I have had the first service last summer and I look forward to some trips coming up --when Spring arrives here . We still have A LOT of snow on the ground, Owasco Lake is still frozen, and our temperatures are still quite cold.

Hello, yes the GRiSO complements a Buell very well, as does other Guzzi models

Welcome...if you want to paint the Dart flyscreen you can order one that is suitable for painting (ABS plastic). I have the Dart on my GRiSO and like it...also, the flyscreen doesn't detract from the bike's design cues. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Welcome upstateDGD!

Was wondering where you picked up your GRiSO. I have never known of any MG dealers in the Syr. area.. but then again, I have not lived there since the early 90's. Hope you enjoy the site. There are many good people and a lot of good information.

Your beaut of a bike will certainly stand out there. Enjoy!

The last Guzzi dealer went out several years ago near me but there is a dealer in Depew,NY(just east of Buffalo) who also carries MV Augusta so hopefully they will do well as the only others are in NYC ,Pa. , Ohio.

Welcome. I also got mine in Penna. Must be some inherent "Quakerness" about Guzzis Wink

"Quakerness"??
