Hi just purchased my first motorcycle and it happens to be a moto guzzi GRiSO 8v devil which i absolutley love. Hoping to get some info from the knowledgeable people on this board. i have already put a rear fender eliminator kit on from lightech. Have a fender extender from pyramid on its way. My bike was a demo and had some stains on the exhaust so i order some yoshimura stainless polish and it absolutly kick a.. turned them stainless and this time will see if i can get the pipes to turn that sweet gold color with out the stains.

Your First motorcycle?
A GRiSO?
Well you certainly did a good job of NOT screwing around with other inferior and soul-less motorcycles.

Welcome to The Ghetto.

You could not ask for a better first bike.
Enjoy.

As a note of caution I would add that the GRiSO is a large, heavy quite powerful motorbike. Be careful, really.....

Hello, and welcome to the ghetto. You bit off a big bite for a first bike, so take your time, get to know your versatile machine, and enjoy the ride.

But, listen to Pete...

See you at Deep Forest August 1-3.

yeah. It's big and heavy.
But it is NOT a Panigale!!

(I tried to copy the "Ducati Buyer video link from youtube but it is failing to play)

Sorry this is my first street bike. My first bike was a 74 Honda elsinore. I have taken the team Oregon motorcycle safety course which is required in Oregon. I will be careful thank you guys for concern. I have seen first hand what low speed wreck can do I work at a hospital it can get nasty.

Low speed tight cornering and parking lot maneuvering is where you feel the weight really, especially if you're only 5.7 tall like myself or shorter.
Being flat footed helps a lot...
Other than that once you get going, the bike is pretty agile and the brakes work great.
