Hi all. picked up my 2008 1064 GRiSO from local Italian specialists MotoCorsa on Friday, paid for it a couple of weeks ago but too busy to collect until then. Managed to get a about a hundred miles on it over the weekend and really enjoying the new riding experience, I've never even considered or sat on a Guzzi let alone owned one before so I guess a few things to learn ; )

First impressions; bloody long reach to the bars, not the fastest lump but I think it's going to cover ground deceptively quickly, love the suspension/ride (although I think my shock a bit tired), tyres have pronounced flat spots (part of the reason of the reason I managed to strike a deal) and although it doesn't track as bad as some would on white lines, etc it does squirm a bit, sounds gorgeous (not too loud) with baffle removed from the Termi, brakes are superb, loads of feel and bite - the best bit, my wife loves it!

Looking forward to finding out what I've bought and getting some miles on it Very Happy

Welcome to you. Plenty of reading and knowledge on here. This is my first Guzzi too & a great way to start I reckon.

Enjoy! cheers

Welcome to GRiSO and the Ghetto!

I also have a 1100, and am new to Guzzi too.  I bought my bike without even seeing it in the flesh (as my MG dealer is a 7 hour trip away...) - I just wanted it so badly. The moment I started the engine and drove off I knew I had struck gold!

Hello Trev , I had an 1100 that I bought unseen off ebay, it was as good as the ad luckily. It was the start of the Guzzi experience.
