Hello all. I am new to Moto Guzzi but not new to motorcycles. I picked up my first Guzzi after eyeing V7s, the new V85 and various California’s with thoughts of a Cafe Racer style conversion that I could commute on. After looking and looking, I decided I didn't need another project and I picked up a 2012 GRiSO 8V from Cadre Cycle to add to my fleet. I’m pleased so far with everything but the weather. 17 degrees this morning and I won’t be riding for a while... ☹😭
I ended up purchasing an ECU flash for a stock rollerized GRiSO and it smoothed the throttle tremendously which is the only thing I didn’t like on the test ride. So now the wait for decent weather begins🕰
I am looking for recommendations on bags and a good looking windscreen. Does anyone have locking leather bags?

PS. I can't say enough good things about Cadre Cycle. I've had friends buy from Enzo there and others purchase parts. My wife bought a Buell Blast there and all nothing the best dealership experiences I've had. Knowing how few Guzzi dealers there are I went out of my way to say this.

Welcome, I knew that would sell right away. Congrats.

Yes, good place to do business.

Is it one of the very rare factory roller Tenni's or is it a converted flat tappet machine? I hope it is rollerised?

It has been rollerised by the dealer Pete. 12k service and rollerisation just performed and I could see the wear on the old tappets he gave me.

Very nice.  Welcome.

I have one of the faster RED models, cheers, but the green is compelling.  Thumbs Up

Lots of bag info on this site; see, e.g., this: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Yes, the weather sucks green (sorry; unintentional Very Happy ) eggs, but this, too, will pass (eventually).  

And, Grisista Ghettoist Nobleswood here and likely others are near to you, at least by Guzzi-range standards.  

I am thinking about rerouting my semi-annual mutton run to Daviess County (Ky.) via Cincinnati to ride some different roads and visit Cadre, too.

Best,

Bill

I'm just a few miles west of Cincinnati.  I too bought my GRiSO from Enzo. Good people.

If you're available, I'll have my GRiSO at CincyCycles East on Wooster Rd. next Tuesday fitting a new front tire and making up braided brake lines.  I have bags and a screen on the bike. I got both from Cadre.

My number is: 513-284-6927 If no answer, leave message.

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome! I may take you up on that offer Rick. We will have to get together either way sometime and go for a ride. I’m in Sharonville actually just a few miles from Cadre.

Heya Turbo, good catch. An Enzo-rollerized Tenni doesn't pop up every day.

I likes me some hard bags, so I have this setup -

Which you can read about here:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I'm in Dayton. On the first Saturday of each month some of us old Guzzi farts get together for 9:00 breakfast at KJ's in Germantown. Could be 3 people or a dozen. In the good weather there's usually an impromptu ride meandering through SW OH / SE IN.

Bring that pretty green thing up sometime.

Same goes for you, Rick Pope. Sorry I missed you before.

Some of us wander down that way with some frequency, whether it be to Rabbit Hash or a chicken run to Wagner's in Oldenberg. I myself just this summer discovered Kreimer's beer garden in Cleves, which seems to be a glorious place to catch some live music, a beer and a brat on a warm Saturday.

I'd like to catch the Euro bike night in Milford, but the fact that it's on a school night (Thursday), plus there being no good way to get there from here that isn't a traffic sh%t-show in the evening has prevented this.

Hope to meet you guys this year.

Oh yeah, Wagner's chicken is the best.. We get there several times per year. Oxford is about half way between me and Dayton. I have an old riding buddy who just bought a V7 from Enzo who lives up your way.

Give me a "heads up" if you're coming this way. I'm retired and can usually get away.
