When my wife walked into the hangar and saw the GRiSO she asked "whos it that", to which I responded, "it's ours, what do you think". The arms were then folded and I heard "I'm not getting on that thing", which led me to reply ...."then I guess it's mine". I really like it.

When I brought my Sport home, my wife was away. When she arrived back she said "Show me what you spent all that money on". I did, she just sat and looked at it for several minutes, then said "It's beautiful". Both of them are, and keepers too!

No longer under discussion.  It will be a GRiSO.    Very Happy     I found two at AF1 Racing and am partial to the Rosso Trophy color.  The bike is a demonstrator with 298 miles on the clock.  Any reason that I should be concerned about buying a demo bike?  I figure I would change the fluids upon receipt since the bike has been in service as a demonstrator and the fluids are probably 1-2 years old.  

There are also two Grisos in San Diego at a place called GP Motorcycles.  Does anyone on the forum have an opinion or experience with that shop?  They have mostly good reviews and their prices are competitive with AF1.

Back at 2006, I bought my 1100 that was a demo bike. Its the very first GRiSO that came to Greece, the one that was borrowed to the local motorcycle magazines to try, and to potential buyers for test ride... It was even borrowed to a member of the local Guzzi club, to participate at a tourist-endurance competition.

I bought it, thinking "So what? How delicate is that thing? Having no crash signs, whats the probabilyty for even a moron to have damage it?"

May be lucky, this thought was correct...

I purchased a 2017 'demo' V7 III. Turns out it had all of 3 miles on it, presumably from riding it between a trailer and display stand. I took the $1K discount and have been very happy with the bike.

When I went for a demo ride, the dealer escorted me the whole time. They wouldn't let you do anything stupid. So I guess you could say that the condition of the demo bike depends on the dealer, and how the dealer operates.

Cool! I just got back from my first ride of the year! Plus 9 degrees Celsius today, and sunny.

Congrats, FRR! Glad it worked out. I have a son, 2 nephews, a brother in law and an old buddy out there. We get out about twice a year.
