Greetings from northern IL,
Picked up a '12 GRiSO Tenni late last year, but since we had a record setting winter for snowfall,
I'm just now getting it out for some shorter rides. The PO added a little bling here and there, the soft bags,
and had some work done to the shock and forks.
I've owned and ridden quite a few bikes over the years, even raced a few, but the closest I can come to
in comparing the GRiSO is to a Ducati Darmah SS I had about 25 yrs ago. Similar long wheel base, but
surprising how well it turns in, much like the Duc. Not as much counter steer needed as I initially thought.
Once in, feels like it's on the proverbial rails. Overall suspension is way better on the GRiSO, as are the brakes.
Not surprising, considering the age, but there is nothing quite like the sound of a bevel drive Duc with Del Ortos
and Conti pipes. d;-)
So far, so good. Need some new rubber and some miles to get better acquainted.
If there is anyone in this general area that wants to hook up for a ride sometime,
let me know, and that includes southern WI. Anybody meet up at Rosefarm?
Lastly, anyone mount up some sort of back rest for the pillion seat? The wifey
likes to go for the occasional putt and she's a bit nervous with no back support.
