Right, but somebody should stand up for the poor relative alien (Redheaded Step Child if you will) Laughing

I kind of think all Guzzi's are targets if you are comparing things to decent a decent strong running V-twin Least with a 2 valve Breva you are not fooling anyone. Cool

So, search is not always my friend, it turns out.  

Two elementary questions:  Heel protection plates-> stainless, I assume?  Or AL?  and, I'm readying for obligatory horn upgrade- just pop the bodywork off and go?
Edit:  Heel pad feels pretty light- alloy?  And..located horns..right in the airflow but I guess that means they're not shrouded. Dual banshees coming, that should be a bit of a ruckus.

Did find some threads indicating frustration in turn front turn signal R&R ...we'll see how that goes.  I read the connections are concealed up in the gauge cluster? grrr..

And dagnabit-- the GRiSO doubled my insurance over the V7 and Victory alone!


Thanks

Had a good few hours out and about- with the Matris and Corbin the ride is very nice over minor imperfections but still jolting on big ones. Have to tinker with compression setting.  Seating position is aggravating a hip issue- but aside from that pre-existing consideration is comfortable enough, just still need to adjust the shift and brake toe pegs.  Currently stock, may go to the Knight options to match the drop pegs.

Performance is a bit more assertive than the V7, but not what I expected given the factory power/weight statistics.  My Victory (in current form) positively mugs the GRiSO (in current form) from a dig and in a straight line, but hey, different intended purposes.  I'm sure the advantage would be reversed given a curvier route.  Looking forward to more fun as this bike and I negotiate a suitable detante!

Huge difference with the banshee horns, but not a simple drop in as they are thicker and have a bit of a trumpet.  Motodemic should be here in a few more hours..
