Ron, does this count as a GeeGaw for the mighty GRiSO? Or are you getting adventurous?

I 'd like that, but I'm flying to Mackay at 7 Wednesday morning to catch up with my partner who's working up there. Going to tell her the good news about buying another GRiSO. Good luck with this one mate. If I wasn't getting another G, I would've liked a Stelvio.

Depends on if I can get time off work. I do plaster hanging and sometimes there's lots on and sometimes not. It all hangs on the weather. Maybe I should just say sod it and come along anyway. I know Heather wants me to catch up with you guys, I sure would like to. Just missed out on meeting Beetle at Bungendore in November when I caught up with Pete, and I haven't met any of you other guys. It'd be good to put faces to names.

Just for additional reference, all of the NTX badged bikes are roller motors.

Author was talking out of his ass...

Errr? You sure about that? I'll have to check myself but I'm pretty sure the designation predates rollers.

I'm probably wrong, but it seemed to me that when the NTX got here to the States (dual lambda, big tank, new tupperware) that coincided with the roll out of the roller motors circa 2012/13.

And then there were the small block NTXs of yesteryear...  Which makes me doubly wrong.  Embarassed

Perhaps the USA didn't get the NTX until later? Certainly we had big tank, twin lambda, flat tappet bikes in Oz.

My not-rollerised orange 2012 NTX (with big tank, etc.) was purchased by the original owner new from Seattle...

Well this one is not an NTX , he is only 8V, and today I named him. "Cassius" cause he floats like a butterfly, Stings like a bee. It has stock suspenders that to me work great. The rear may be a tad soft for hard riding, but I think it will suffice for touring with the bride queen

Beetle popped a map in for me and it really does ride like the GRiSO's now. Like a fat GRiSO Laughing The big fuel tank is great , I expect it will do 550 kms easily.
It will approach the GRiSO warp factors , but be careful as the front gets very light , something to do with the big esky's on the back Twisted Evil
I have no intention of selling the GRiSO's , but this beastie is really growing on me. 10 hrs today from Young Nsw to Grafton Nsw , now I need to do something with the seat , or my soft arse Razz
