PostSubject: GRiSO 1100 at the Isle of Man   Wed Sep 06, 2017 12:40 am

Went to the Classic TT last week I took my 1100 GRiSO and my R1100S  along with a mate with a 76 Jota Endurance racer his brother with a 72 TR6 Trophy and a couple of Jap bikes, we did quite a bit of bike swapping and the standout favorite of the lads was the GRiSO (I suspect to do with the handling and them looking cool on it)

This is a video of us having a bit of a bimble up to the Bungalow and back (second half we are doing the course the right way) my mate has a ton of bikes and was trying both of mine out

note in the unrestricted zones there is no speed limit on the IoM

This video is me on the R1100S following a mate (who knows the mountain inside out) on my GRiSO and Dave on his rapid Jota Endurance racer.  We are going over the Mountain from Ramsay to Douglas

After this trip I want an 8v even more

Excuse the bad language I was getting a bit frustrated with all the slow traffic

Certainly do , the 1100 is a lovely bike but runs out of puff too quick, I really like the GRiSO package but another 30 bhp would be ace

The Harley my mate is comparing it to in the vid is one of the one make race XR1200 that he bought and put on the road (it came 3rd in the series) and goes like a raging bull compared to the GRiSO so I am hoping the 8v will be more like that, yes I know a tuono would be better than them both but I really like the GRiSO

well the 8v has almost 20 more bhp, so you are well on the way, it runs out of revs before go!

TBH I reckon the 2v feels like about 70bhp my R1100S steams away from it above 70 mph but on its own the 1100 is a lovely bike its just when you are following others at speed it is lacking

I run out of puff* way before the 8v GRiSO does.

Ekimyrf,
This video is great and I love your earlier videos of getting back on the GRiSO and taking it to the IoM. I watched them over and over again to get a feel for the engine before I bought my 2014 in the spring.

I'm so happy with it and a big thanks to you!

Cheers
Norm F.

Norm

Thanks for the comment I am so happy I have been able to assist, I do these as a memory for myself and the lads a bit like holiday snaps,  my mates reckon its like the interminable old "slide" nights that our parents used to make us sit through as kids :-)

This year at the IoM I was mostly riding the R1100S as my son preferred the pillion and the other guys scrapped to get the GRiSO, I was amazed how popular it was.

The plan is to have a nice 8v GRiSO for next year

Cheers Mike

Here is another of the GRiSO, the Laverda and me on the Boxer riding out to Ramsay (again please excuse the language )

It's just so nice to see people moving over so you guys could get past. You wouldn't see that in a month of Sundays here in Oz because our drivers are so obsessed with owning the road and not letting anyone past them. No such thing as being courteous here unfortunately.

Yes I lived in Adelaide for 25 years so know all about that (worst drivers in Aus I reckon) more of a contact sport.

You are shown a lot more consideration over here (UK), but in that clip most of the cars were bike related folks off to the Jurby festival so were very accommodating to us.
