With a beard like that he needs red leathers.

I'm jealous, ....................................... of the bike, not the beard.

The huge, rude, can 'Fell off' while it was on the bench and a black Agostini slip-on fell on to it. Sounds good without being obnoxious.

Getting it was a right royal Pain In The Arse! It was despatched from Sydney on Wednesday but the fuckwits at Toll Express freighted it to their Canberra depot in Fyshwick. Now trucks come out of there going to the coast every day and go through Bungendore but because it was 'Supposed' to have been despatched from Goulburn the stupid fucks sent it BACK to Goulburn and the bloke there said it would have to wait until Monday. By this time Charlie was already on the train from Sydney and I had no bloody bike for him!

By asking nicely the accomodating Fred in Goulburn agreed to open up his depot on Saturday morning at 8.30 AM so I met Charlie and we went of and got shitfaced by way of soothing our frustrations!

Then this morning we leapt up, got in the Serial Killer Van, (Visible behind the bike in the second picture above.) and drove over to Goulburn where Fred forked it into the back and we drove back to Bungendore.

When we got back to the workshop we called in Dan and Bec to assist in forking it back out of the van and then we uncreated it and spent a few hours on the PD, fitting the pipe, sodding about with the suspension etc.

Finally, at about 2PM Charlie was able to hop on and be on his way. Since it's now after 3.00 and I haven't had a phone call I can only assume he's having fun!

What a frontbottom of a week!

cheers

Pete

Very nice, Pete (and especially Charlie!). I think that colour is one of the best ones they came
out with for our Grisos. Too bad the OEM exhaust fell off. Oh, well. An awesome Agostini
will have to do. Charlie must be riding on a cloud today...

Everyone loves the red! Daniel and Bec were salivating over it too and they don't usually pay much attention to the bikes in my shop.

It's a good looking thing!

Pete yer a bloody legend. When I got off the train and Pete told me the tale of my bike I thought fuck. But beer cures all ills. Had a laugh and asked lots of questions. Cant remember some of the answers......What a motorcycle . Cheers Pete.

He'll tell you it's a shitheap!

Then offer you the 1100 at an inflated price! Very Happy

He still has his 1100. I wish I had mine. I reckon in thirty years time the GRiSO will have the same 'Cachet' as MkI Le Mans......

Josh C .  Roadholding wise ,rough as forty bastards. Engine Just  wants to fuck right off to waay over there right now and does. Front brake is a cracker. Seat comfort, fine for half an hour..... shoulda took the Corbin to Petes with me. Tyres are good in the rain. Who fits the standard suspension set up ? = forty bastards. It rained from Lithgow to Taree via Bells Line and Wisemans Ferry. We were gunna go home via the Putty but my darling bride came down to Lithgow to meet me on her V7 Stone but had a run in with Plod  ,$260,so we went the other way. Outa the blue my missus ,Christine, suggested I get a new bike. originally I said No. Glad I changed my mind. Bride of the Century. But Im gunna keep the 1100 for goin to work on ,and the 1200 for getting out and about on..

Very nice Charlie cheers
We have had similar hassles with the freight company's, Fridays are bad, sometimes urgent parts we are waiting on arrive at the depot after lunch time and we won't see them until monday unless we chase them up , and go to the depot to pick them up ourselves.
At least you had Beer to help drunken Smile

Try working with them! They are taking us over up here, and changing a well run operation into a total shambles. Bloody disgrace.

Nice bike that!!

Sounds good, Charlie. I'm cheering the 1100 on to hit 200,000 kms.

A wife who not only encourages you to own two Guzzi's but also rides one herself? That's gold.
