Joined a little while ago to gain some insight on the GRiSO. I have other bikes (mostly single seaters) but the only one my wife and I could take for spin was my '75 Commando. She would complain about the seat being cramped and the smell of oil etc so I had to get another bike to suit the two of us. We dont ride together that often or far so it didnt need to be a dedicated two upper like a Goldwing or HD Ultra or anything just reasonably comfortable for both of us. I also wanted something a bit sportier  for the times I'd be riding solo.The GRiSO fit the bill and when one came my way I had to have it. The green paint and brown seat combo is stunning. She hasn't seen it yet as I recently had a procedure on my jaw that has me off the bikes for a month but I've told her she'll be traveling  in style the next time we go for a ride. Personally I cant wait to stretch its legs and see what it can do.

Pretty much all the e-start Commandos are kick-only Smile

First ride today!. Took it down to a local shop to get my NY inspection to be 100% street legal. First impression is how nice and quiet the bike is idling. It does have a really nice rumble tho once you crack it open. Rocks on the sidestand a little when revved. I guess a characteristic this engine configuration however not noticeable while on the move. Seating position very comfortable,mirrors usable (no vibration) brakes excellent. Shifting easy and smooth. Very easy to find neutral. Felt the bikes length for the first few minutes but didnt bother me all after that. Its fast by the seat of the pants but I'll need more time in the saddle to get a better idea. The instruments were confusing only because I spent no time figuring out what was what. After the ride I pulled out the manual and in no time had figured out all the menus,settings etc and even reprogrammed the key codes. Overall very happy.
