Hello all. I happened upon the GRiSO while searching for a new bike after a 5 year break from riding. Wow!!!! am I happy on this bike. Looking forward to learning more, meeting up other happy GRiSO owners and riding. See you all out there.

Welcome. You'll find that it's a hooligan bike....just watch out for speeding tickets.

Welcome, austin-22. Which Seca do you have? A good friend had three, the 550, 650 and 750. They each had great characters, but the 650 was particularly sweet.

Sorry, all bikes listed are previously owned except the GRiSO, one that one now. I had the 650. Really fun bike to ride and plenty quick.

Yes, I think the 650 Seca was one of Yamaha's best bikes ever. Great riding position, nearly perfect engine for it's size, and a decent shaft drive. And it looked great!

HWY 58 from Bakersfield to San Luis Obispo. Very nice ride with a little bit of everything.

No. It was a suction cup on top of the Ducati's gas tank. Seemed to work well and my buddy said it never came loose. GoPro brand. He tried the helmet attachment too, but this angle gave a better reference point.

Thanks. I'm still trying to find the optimum placement for Enzo's old Hero2. I tested the suction cup mount with an extended arm and thought it introduced too much shaking on my G. I am working now with a rubber post mount on the right side mirror stalk, and it's a little better. But I'm starting to think a body mount will be the only way to eliminate the engine vibes altogether... and I'm not a fan of the view from a helmet mount.
