Subject: Muzhik Demos a GRiSO Thu Mar 24, 2016 6:13 pm
After pecking out the title, supposed this could just be in the "What Did You ..." thread, but here we are.
It was a big day for muzhik (Scott), and riding my GRiSO was only a piece of it. Even bigger news was that this was his last official day on active duty in the U.S. Air Force.
So, after out-processing from the USAF this morning, he came out to in-process ... on a GRiSO. Scott has been "shopping" for a GRiSO for some time, but unable to ride one. He lives only about an hour away in Maryland, so I offered. The stars aligned, and Scott drove over to Cross Junction.
After a quick lunch -- during which I checked his driving rap sheet with the Virginia State Police -- we changed into ATGATT and launched.
After running a few miles north up unchallenging U.S. 522 for familiarization, we did 50 or so more on roads that were worthy of a GRiSO. While appropriately wary of dumping another guy's machine, Scott could ride and did.
I almost dumped my EV in sand on a sharp uphill curve, but survived to tell the tale ... even if my sphincter is still fused.
Here are a (very) few pix of today's activities at the top of Virginia.
