PostSubject: Figure for GRiSO   Wed Aug 29, 2018 7:07 am

I've met a man selling GRiSO production 2012 with 20000 km. I had never chance to drive it. When I present my interest owner seems to be a bit amused looking on me. Therefore I started to think if I would be able to handle such a bike as I am 190 cm and 72 kg while the owner is like woodsman. Is it really so hard?
What should I concentrate before buying (except of, if rollerized)?

Thank you a lot.

Peter

My mechanic Michael is tiny, he never had any problems with GRiSO.

Most people over 5 foot could put both feet down. Easy enough at low speeds, very easy when it gets rolling (except for the dumb riding position-but that can be sorted).

A perfect machine for Slovakian roads.

I’m 188 cm and GRiSO fits like a glove. The woodsman must feel cramped. Perhaps a reason he’s selling.

This small lady seems to have no trouble at all:

G'day Peter
Greetings from Tasmania.
I see that you are a young 52 .....
I believe that age and fitness are a more positive requirement for GRiSO than size ....
I am now a young 66 and feeling this age creeping on in the strength area and feeling issues with GRiSO getting on/off, shedding ect, no probs once on the black stuff ...
Will soon be looking seriously at a smaller MG.
Stay safe and warm.

Welcome to the Ghetto, Peter!

I'm shorter than you too and the GRiSO suits me just fine. The only way you'll know for sure is to ride it.

Glad you like it. Actually it is wrap foil, but nice done. And as bike has been driven just on dry weather it looks very nice even after more then four years.
