Hello fellow sufferers!

It's great to find a forum devoted to the GRiSO!

My name is Dan. Im from Sydney, Australia and am currently getting around on a 2006 GRiSO 1100.
This is my first Guzzi having done the majority of riding on Ducatis (I still have my old 600 Pantah which was my daily commuter until it was replaced by the GRiSO). I earn a crust as an industrial designer.

The GRiSO is fairly stock save for a Mistral can, some sexier bars/grips and some matte-black paint covering some of the more obnoxious plastic-chrome bits (photo below was taken before all of that).

As a guzzi-newcomer am especially looking forward to picking the brains of the highly learned-up people here, in particular regarding the 1100 which seems to get left out of a lot of the tech-talk on the other forums.

Anyway, pleased to meet you, thanks for having me!
Dan.

Welcome to the ghetto Dan.  This site was actually inspired the long running Italian GRiSO board ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] with the hope that we might be able to generate enough interest in the anglicized world to expend the ranks of worldwide GRiSO aficionados.

Glad you are here, and your participation is encouraged.  We have many current and former GRiSO 1100 owners here who would be more than happy to share their experiences with you.

Cheers,

SD

Thanks all! Good to be here.
So much enthusiasm for the red ones...wonder why they don't offer it in red anymore?

Bettle
Yep
I Kinda like the look of the red colour.
That and the green 8v as well.
Like my black one, but it's black, and most of my old bikes were black.
Only saving grace is it's a GRiSO.
And the wife likes it as well, so that is a major plus.

Hi Dan - Welcome to the show!

I'm working as a ID too and second your opinion about faked metal bling. My SE has only one peace of plastic-chrome shit left – won't show it, it's too embarrassing…

Commuting on a Pantah Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing ......so you work from home Wink 

I had the S&M relationship with a '82 600 sl Pantah from 84-89.... The GRiSO is a bit more like Ann Margaret in work boots, and a cocktail dress.....who never complains about breaking a nail.
