Hello all,
 Long time Lurker, first time poster!  Very Happy 
I bought this 2012 GRiSO 8VSE;
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I bought it from a fellow in Chicago, who only owned it a few months, then had to sell, due to an upcoming hip replacement   Sad 

Some of you may notice it from this thread here:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

So, it was purchased new in St. Louis last year (from a now-closed Guzzi dealer), sold by a different dealer(Moto Europa, St Louis) to Tiger_One (Louisiana).  He was awesome enough to install some very nice suspension upgrades (Race Tech R shock, front springs), and install a very nice fuel map!  He then sold it to the dude in Chicago, who installed the Guzzi windshield and Stucchi rear rack, along with a brand new set of Michelin PR4s!   cheers  It also has the Mistral Cone slip-on muffler w/db killer.

Are y'all with me so far?   Rolling Eyes 

So...I purchased it last month, checked/changed oils, filters, valves, etc.  Just got GuzziDiag running, reset TPS, saved map, etc.

That's where I am today!  I've put over 1,000 miles on it since last month, and she runs very well.  I rode it last weekend to the Peoria TT, where she sat in a sea of HD Black & Chrome, stealing the looks of most savvy passers-by with her sexy Tenni livery!!
 Thumbs Up 
The thing I am most surprised by, is the handling - SO Solid around the turns!!

Me?  I'm just an average American motor-cycle junkie, with a garage full of Italian, Jap, & British metal.  E. Engineer for the US Gubmint.
Sorry so long-winded!

Being long winded doesn't scare me.
I gotta show my wife your 'fro - it's bigger than hers.
