Hi everyone,
Well after a mk5 le mans(65k miles) and a v11(25k miles) I'm chuffed as hell to finally be a GRiSO owner!
Had to trailer it home as it was below freezing and 400 km of salted motorways back to where I live in the French alps.
Thoroughly washed now and living in a heated garage. Shame it's the start of winter though..............
cheers

Congratulations!!  

cheers
Beautiful bike!  I see you already have Onur's tankbag ring installed!  Good for you.  And I like your exhaust pipe.

Congrats.  cheers

Please forgive me for what may very well (but unintentionally) come across as patronizing, as you probably did something like what I mention here as a matter of course.  

But, in the event you did not go beyond washing and add something like Ballistol — [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] — after the wash (& dry), I recommend you consider such.

I, too, trailered my GRiSO in nasty weather:

In my case, was bringing it back from Rose Farm Classics — [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] — near Chicago, to our home at the top of Virginia.

[More of that trip here if you care: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (Out)

Anyway, my rollerized but sad GRiSO was pummeled by salt and worse for almost 800 miles of turnpike.

After I washed it, I tried to find every vulnerable spot where corrosion might be an issue.  About a month later, I saw that I’d missed one.  Nasty.  Yet, everywhere else, doused with Ballistol as I generously did, has stayed just fine.  

Enough.

Best wishes for miles of smiles on that beyoootiful GRiSO.

Bill

Hi,
Not patronising at all Smile I used to use a product called 'duck oil' when I lived in the UK and it worked a treat on my old (1979) bevel drive 900ss.........and also on my le mans that was ridden a lot on salty roads as it was my only form of transport at the time. Wish I still had the 900ss though as a stable mate for the GRiSO!!
There will soon be loads of snow where I live. Here is a pic of my other 2 wheeled passion.

Welcome Karl, but why the hell did you put sugar coating all over your GRiSO?
