I used to drive a 1100 sport-i which due to family/kids/getting older/stiffer got sold a few years ago... as i could not get rid of the "itch" i have for some time been wanting to get back in the saddle, it was either a Guzzi or potentially a Thruxton..... i have kept an eye on the (limited) Swedish market but i am now a proud owner of a black -06 GRiSO with little mileage, as new and fully serviced. Been riding it for two weeks now and cant keep from smiling... it is also a thing of beauty and i find myself sitting and looking at it just for sheer pleasure. Well. I have a Mistral high on order and will likely then update the map or try one of the add-on fueling thingies. One thing with this marque is these lovely forums wher people from all over share experiences, foul language and what-not! Glad to be back!

G'day Ulf
Welcome to the ghetto from us all down under in Tasmania.
I too have 1100, a fast red one, great bikes. Mine now has some 67k on the clock and still pulling like a train.
Enjoy your 'new' bike and please stay safe and warm.

Thanks! I do like the 2-valver it´s benign but yet so torqey pull.... one thing is, the sporti had a taller overall gearing so i ran that much faster as the engine did less rpms. The sporti did 150 km/h at 5k, the GRiSO in 6th same revs around 135 km/h. Will save on speeding tickets i hope!

Welcome bak Ulf, you were missed :-)

interesting to note the gearing, my 8v does 145kmh at 5k, i presume the gearing is the same? so maybe just a variance?

Hi Ulf, welcome to this haphazard group - good people here though.

Get a proper map - please avoid, fuel thingies/addons -they do not work. This includes Power Commanders. See GRiSO.org for a selection, but you will need to get your exhaust first.

Welcome to the Ghetto, Ulf. I put 50,000 miles on my first GRiSO, a red 2007. Loved it! Now loving my 1200SE. Post pictures when you get a chance.

Once bitten the Guzzi bug may abate for a while but is never cured.

Of all the CARC models, only the Breva has taller gearing compared with the others.  Dunno why, except it was the first to be released.

Have tried db-killer in vs out, and it stays IN. Way to loud dB out to my ears, it sound more "sophisticated" with dB-killer in in some way.. Very Happy my arse says a bit better responsiveness.... will keep an eye on plugs etc. be in touch with Beetle...
