Hi everyone, only recently stumbled over the site, great to have a dedicated GRiSO base with loads of useful info. Owned my pampered GRiSO since July 2013 and is only my second bike, first being an F650gs beemer. My beautiful black 2008 8v is relatively standard apart from rear hugger and crash bars. I have also added a bit of bling in the form of chrome bar end weights and speedo surround to replace factory black items, currently trying to obtain the elusive and endangered `Guzzi flyscreen (on order since Xmas).I live in Central Scotland, relatively close to the magnificent structure you see here - never fails to impress me. The Forth Bridge links Edinburgh and the Lothians in the south, to the Kingdom of Fife, north of the river. Photo taken at South Queensferry, a bikers mecca playing host to hoardes of bikes most fine weekends.

Love the site BTW. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

AFAIK the small fly screen has been discontinued. It was always more decorative than useful.

This.

Looks to be about the closest I've seen and it looks both more useful and better looking than the factory item.

Living where you do make sure you get your bike really good and hot at least once a week if you want to avoid top end problems.

Welcome!

I've stood right where your GRiSO is in that pic. We went for a cruise on the Firth of Forth a fews years back. The bridge is a spectacular piece of engineering. I saw a heap of bikes when we were there, mostly Ducati's & Harley's IIRC. No GRiSO's.


 cheers

Welcome to the ghetto Tigger!  Not many Scotsmen on board here, so you are a special member indeed!

There is a guy over on the Italian GRiSO board who was popping out some nice fiberglass repops of the GRiSO flyscreen that look great and aren't very expensive at all.  I will try to relocate the particulars and repost over here.

There is some really great stuff over there with the Italians, but for non-Italian speakers, it takes a bit of digging and translating.

Here it is...

I can just see it parked on the cobbles in front of the Bon Vivant just off Charlotte Square.
