Hi Ghetto dwellers,
for our US friends that like our quaint ozzie town names im from "Yarrawarrah" its in the south of Sydney...
Quick intro, I have been floating about the other general guzzi forums for a couple of years, and the Aprilia forum for about 12 years, hmmm thinking about it was also on the le-mans forum for a while
I ride on a white 2010 8v at the moment, traded my GSXR1000 in for it , only problem was the bike was in Adelaide I live in Sydney so 3 days 2800k's later and a bike swap in the middle I was back home with my new toy, had it 2 years now, still loving it...
mods, well not a whole lot, Dart flyscreen, Pilot power 3's , oh and new CARC, swingarm, rocker cover, oil cooler cover, front axel, mirror and bar end weight after i parked it on its side at lowish speeds a few months ago
Bike history, Chook chasers(dirt bikes) in my teens, then Suzuki SV650, Honda VFR800, Guzzi V11 Le-mans, Aprilia Tuono, Sachs madass, GSXR1000 and now a GRiSO...
The things that keep me away from my GRiSO are working to keep a couple of networks running, getting the kids to sports, and finding time to go for a surf , MTB ride or a run, once in a blue moon the call of the guzzi will be stronger than everything else and I will just abandon hope and go for a ride around the royal national park(the GRiSO was made for this road)...

Welcome to the nut house Scot.
The GRiSO is made to carve twisties for sure.
And like I said to my wife, the GRiSO was made for me.

Welcome Scot. I used to live in Canberra, near Pete Roper, but now I'm in Geelong with the only GRiSO here.

Oh yer great ride,usually I do it early morning but the boys in blue are still there.
Although I find the GRiSO great at just cruising speed as well.
Any issues see Motociclo St peters or as I have done great ride to bungandore to see Mr Roper.
