Hello all guzzi (& GRiSO !) lovers,

My Name is Robin and I live in New Caledonia, french island in the south pacific.

had numerous bikes, mainly Suzuki as I worked for the brand overthere (SV1000, Hayabusa, B-king, M109R...) and discovered Moto Guzzi in a trade with a scooter I was using years ago (shame !  Shocked ), it was a 1200 Sport 2V, and  I entered in religion at this moment haha.

After 2 children and 3 years after selling it, I bought the only 2014 (or 2015 model, don't know) GRiSO 1200 8V SE sold in New Caledonia to a Customer (special order) 11k miles, 4 years old. Sold with side luggages and some mods you will recongnize on pics.

I recently purchased an Agostini HF Nero exhaust (fitted this Week-end) along with Guzzitech tail tidy kit (still in transit). The exhaust sound without DbKiller is just….diabolic. And I know I need a beetle Map now Smile


Overall this bike is very fun to drive, lot of character, and with Agostini exhaust it has a real mechanical presence that matches its look. I love it.


See you soon on the forum !


Regards,


Robin

P.S : will post pics when allowed, in 7 days bounce

Welcome to the Ghetto, Robin! How many kilometers of roads do you have on New Caledonia? Can't wait to see pics of your GRiSO and your island home. The scenery must be breathtaking!

Hi everybody !

6 months passed since my subscription, almost had no time for riding (1000kms done…) or enjoying  this forum due to my new job, but now that I have more time, I can finally send you some pictures.

I also purchased a beetle map (Thanks a lot Mark for your fantastic job) ad uploaded it yesterday on my GRiSO, what a difference ! I should have done it at the beginning...Only regret, no more exhaust "poping" ! No Db Killer, No catalytic. Raw 1200 sound. I love it...

Hi Pete, we have an island that is 450kms long and 50kms large, and not a lot of roads haha. Also quite twisty and no very flat, so very enjoyable with a GRiSO Smile Will try to send you some pictures taken from rides.

See you soon,

Robin

I took this photo in 2013 when I had my 1200 sport 2V, very nice bike too but I prefer the GRiSO by far ! Smile (Except for analog cluster, I like it more than the hybrid on GRiSO)
