I totally support sidrat and agree it will need running in, but you don't want to send it to the UK send it to me I'm in a nice dry climate that will allow the shock to bed in more effectively Smile

Not so much doing things to the GRiSO, more doing things to me. For the GRiSO's benefit of course. Had an arthroscopy to find out why my left ankle is so painful. Doctor pulled out a bony lump 2" long that had been floating around since my crash in 2016. Should be able to wear boots again! Result.

Screwed the left hand switchgear back in place, look and behold, the index finger push button works! 5.90 euros worth of tactile waterproof push buttons instead of a 260+ euro switchgear! And now I have 149 buttons in reserve geek

Oh, also made the intake schnorkel redundant.

Took delivery and had my first ride on the GRiSO.  Even with the 30+ mph winds and sand in the twisties, it was still a blast.  All I can say is Wow!

I can just imagine going up 24 past Manitou, squirting out of the corners with the sound of the exhaust bouncing off the canyon walls ! Very Happy

Thank you, Beetle.

Nobleswood - I did not make it down and up highway 24 yet.  I went west to Divide to fill up with ethanol free and then hit Edlowe Road west of Woodland Park.  Forgot that the end of Edlowe and the turnaround is dirt.  First ride and 30 miles on the GRiSO and it is muddy since I rode it through the snowmelt at the top of Edlowe Road.  Embarassed

Just got back from getting my new Corbin seat! I rode into the Corbin factory in Hollister (California) and they measured and made it custom fit. I got a chance to ride with the standard seat and got them to make some adjustments to the foam to make it more comfortable. I just went with all black leather, but there are thousands of possible options.

I took these pics before leaving the Corbin parking lot. What do you think?

Fixed the "stuck throttle/bolt" issue of last week. Relieved now!

Am I the only one, who's having problems with ride quality on a Corbin seat? A real dilemma, that is. The Corbin looks good but feels akward. Especially on longer runs the edges of the seat cup start to press my thighs painfully so I've reverted to the original saddle.

I love my Corbin. The standard seat would give me raging numb arse after 90 minutes. I can ride all day on the Corbin.


I love you

Same here, the stock seat was a torture chamber. I had a Corbin on my Stelvio and put one on the GRiSO. I find it comfortable on a 360 mile ride I have taken.

At Corbin they put their standard seat for this bike on it and let me try riding with it. I found the ridges digging into my thighs, so the seat builder reshaped that area to be smooth like the stock seat. After that it felt great. Then they made the coverings to fit. I’m glad I went there instead of just ordering the standard seat!

Yup, that is how I thought to continue. I'll just have to find a good saddlesmith to do it.

That looks like what I want. More arse room so I can move back. Good work getting a custom.

Hey Diablo Loco: I have that Uncle Meat album! I didn’t think anyone else knew about that.

Yep, did that today.  There was lots of fast moving traffic so I was able to maintain a spirited pace and not worry about the State Patrol.  It was awesome!

Did 190 miles today in a loop from the house.  Great ride through the Colorado countryside.  First photo was taken in the driveway as my wife and I were loading up.  Second photo was taken in Silvercliffe, CO, looking west toward the Sangre de Cristo mountains.

Have I mentioned that I love the bike?  Now I understand folks' comments about how the GRiSO puts a smile on their face.
