10 years ago today I became the very proud owner of my 2006 1100 GRiSO. Red. The price was $21950 Aud. I traded my 2004 BMW R1150R Rockster and my wifes 2004 BMW R1150R and $1500 cash. This was my 3rd Moto Guzzi. The GRiSO wasnt as fast as the BM but not by much, but I was smitten. I have done a few things to it and need/want to do more but nothing urgent. It has 167 950 Kms on it. I bought a 2015 GRiSO last August so the 1100 doesnt get ridden as much but I use it to go to work. Rain hail or shine. Without a shadow of a doubt it is the sweetest bike I have ridden. The 1200 only has 7000 Kms on it at the moment and Im certain it will get better with more kilometers but the 110 has set a very high benchmark. Happy Birthday Wog Bike!!

I wish I'd kept my 1100 now I know that Guzzi seem to be abandoning building exciting motorbikes. It would of been nice to have one of the first 1100's and the first 1200's, even if the 1200 was a grenade!

Charlie, there will be celebrations tonight, around the world. So let's lift a glass of something most excellent, to Charlie and his 1100!

Cheers mate.
