Good Day.  I've had my GRiSO since April 2016, bought new from Cadre Cycle in Cincinnati, Ohio.  It's original except a small windscreen and Agostini oval muffler. I had to have one after a test ride, finding myself giggling inside my helmet.  Just returned from a trip through the Smoky Mountains, and it performed great.

I was pointed in this direction by another member, whom I've known for a long time, from another model speific club (Honda CBX). Thank you Mike.

Hi Rick,
Good to hear of more GRiSO’s in the Mid West. Did you get your bike in 2016 ? So it’s a 2015 / 2016 model ? Cadre have a great reputation, are they servicing the bike or are you ? cheers

Bought it in May 16, and yes, it's a 2016 model. So far, I've heard nothing bad about Cadre, and Enzo has treated me well.

So, in meandering through the posts, I see many folks refer to their bikes as "rollered" or "rolled". That seems to be in reference to having upgraded to roller cam followers. Do the 2015/16 models suffer the same issues? Any other items I should keep an eye on?

You're good. Yours came with factory rollers.

Yes, but I'm busy putting together a CBX rally just two weeks later in Marietta. We will get to Zanesville to visit, Tom's Ice Cream Bowl...........

Agreed. I traded in two BMWs to get it. My Blackbird never gets ridden now.

Do you know Mike Hahne? He's another Illinois guy, a bit south of you, near Ottawa.

Hey mike, I'm glad to be here. I do hope you can come visit us at the CBX rally. I'll have the GRiSO there too.

We do have some strange garage mates, don't we? Do you still have your Yamaha GTS? There was one at Vintage Days for sale.

@Rick Pope
Welcome to the ghetto.I purchased my bike brand new just under two years ago & have no regrets.I’ve made no modifications to the bike at all as I decided to leave it standard.The agostini muffler is a very expensive addition in Australia.The state I currently live in has very strict laws in regards to putting non standard mufflers on motorbikes with fines & penalty’s to match which makes the agostini a expensive mistake should you get pulled over & booked.
