It is nice, really nice. I wanted to share this ad with you guys. The photos are excellent and portray the excellence of a concept bike and a few custom enrichments... not many but subtle.

The bit about me buying it was a total Fcuking Lie!

I will always regret selling my GRiSO. I am sure I will buy another and can look forward to that day.

I like this bike a LOT.  Modest but effective changes. The seat seems very comfy!  Price seems reasonable as well!

cheers

I can well imagine, like most "antique" Guzzis that the GRiSO will be a most desirable lot in Bonhams and Sotheby's in the future, Doubt me not. The demise of the 8v 1200 has just made it scarcer and collectable. If you can hang on to these bikes gentlemen, do so. I could not believe the hits I had on mine and watchers in two days on ebay. Sadly it sold, I tried my best to dissuade the gentleman but he just stood there  with a soporific stare at the bike. He bought it.. the bastard!

Rollered or not prices on Guzzis are strong compared to what dealers were offering them for new 2 years ago. This is contrary to what our learned antipodean brothers are experiencing.

Chris.

Bugger me! you like your India Pale Ales too! They are getting more popular over here on draught but they are way too strong IMHO everyone gets wasted too early. The bar looks great, I love the irony behind it. I would certainly like to have a few beers in there!

The competition among small brewers here on the West coast is producing some amazing IPAs. They are making very flavorful beers without the aggressive bitterness. The sweet spot for IPA seems to be around 7% alcohol. I don't miss the fizzy yellow piss that used to dominate American brewing one bit. Fantastic times for people who enjoy really good beer. drunken

Imperial Pale Ale. Tends to be far more bitter and hoppy than our usual Ozzie lagers.

Despite the fact their big brewery beers are almost universally shit the US has some fucking fantastic 'Craft' or 'Micro' breweries. They have even produced their own takes on the format usually called 'APA's which tend to be darker and hoppier still. I have to say I'm much taken with them..... Very Happy

India pale ale is correct. When Britain colonized India their traditional brews didn’t survive the journey in hot weather on slow sailing ships, so to preserve it, they added hops, lots of hops, and IPA was born

Speaking of craft beers and microbreweries...  Are you going to make it to Colorado during your trip here this year?  Colorado Springs is awash in microbreweries; it might be worth a stop.  Wink
