Hi Folks, I just accquired Rushjob's beautiful, nicely accessorized 2017 GRiSO SE. This is my 6th Guzzi. I currently have an 84 Cal II convert, an 85 LeMans IV, and a 73 Eldorado. I have also owned a Rosso Mandello, and an 02 V 11 sport naked in the past. I traded my 2003 California aluminum/California sidecar friendship II rig to Dale for the GRiSO, and am very happy.
Dale is a super nice guy, and a true enthusiast. My kind of people! He is currently trailering the sidecar rig to his new home in Florida, and should be there soon, burning up the backroads in Guzzi style!
I have been lurking here and have learned quite a bit about Grisos already. This is my first time on a modern Guzzi, and all I can say is WOW! The bike is so smooth, the six speed gearbox is simply amazing, and the torque is impressive. I think this bike is a "keeper"!
Alot of the forum members here are names I recognize after many years on the "Loop list", and the WildGuzzi forum. cheers
Whats up, Guys!
Rick.

Welcome to the Other side!  You'll find the GRiSO quite addictive indeed and you got a nicely sorted one to be sure!

Welcome to the Ghetto, Rick! Hopefully Dale will post up a picture of the sidecar rig once he gets home to Fla. I'm a big fan of sidecars, mine's an '02 California Stone Touring with a DMC hack. I end up riding that most of the time so we can all be together, wife, dog, me. Unfortunately the GRiSO, the Eldo and the V7 tend to get left behind.

Thanks for the warm welcome , fellas!

Pete, that sounds like a sweet rig you have. Im sure Dale will post some pics of his soon. Its a 2003 California Special Sport Aluminum with a California sidecars friendship II chair. I have owned the rig for over 9 years, and have had many great memories with it. Its a very well sorted outfit, that I am sure he will enjoy.
Rick.

Sounds pretty sweet, Rick. We've put a little over 17,000 miles on this one in the four years we've had it. When we got the pup and decided to build a sidecar rig I was afraid I was going to be giving up all the fun and performance of riding on two wheels, but I discovered I really dig it. Totally different experience, but just as much fun. And we never get separated anymore!

Okay, enough about sidecars, back to our regularly scheduled GRiSO forum.

Beautiful outfit you have there! DMC makes some top quality rigs, and I can tell yours is well set up. The steering mods are sweet, as well as the spoked sidecar wheel, matches the Guzzi perfect.
Those DMC sidecars have a great reputation, they are solid as a tank!
I can tell,Pooch is in heaven, with the doggles,and headgear, sitting comfortably on mommas lap!
