A big hello to all the ghetto members and a thanks to Steak for the warm welcome,
I have my 2011 tenni green GRiSO se that I travelled to England to buy over a year now and love it.
Living in Ireland the nearest Guzzi dealer is in Northern Ireland or England,

In that year I have never had any problems with the exception of blowing a fuse once when starting and after that I did the wiring mod from battery to starter relay.
With the help of the great advice that I have found on this and other sites on the net I do my own servicing,
oil, filter, plugs, valve settings and reset the TBS using Guzzidiag also the swing arm bearings grease etc.

I have sold my FJR which I hope to replace with another pillion friendly bike for touring sometime soon and I'm loving the guzzi engine so much I may even considering a Stelvio?

Looking forward to hanging around the ghetto,

Guzzi Cat,

Welcome to the Ghetto! Yes, like you, after falling in love with my GRiSO, I now want to experience other MGs.

A Very Noble Idea but you already have the best.

Yes, the best for my fat ass. But it would be nice to experience the power of Guzzi on a bike more suitable to two-up touring. Like any of the Cali's. Very Happy

Céad Míle Fáilte from a Limerick man living in NYC. Also lucky to be a Tenni owner. Yours looks really nice. Tell us more about the rear hugger.

Another GRiSO in Ireland! There are a group of us Guzzi owners spread around the country and we have organised the odd meet up. Would be great to see you sometime. News about get togethers is usually posted up on the Guzzi Club GB Forum. By the way, sad to say that there are no Guzzi dealers in the island of Ireland any more. The only one up here in the North has given up on Guzzis. Plenty of good mail order specialists for bits though.

Thanks for all the good vibes guys,

Slainte!!!   right back to all, Speirmoor, when I bought the bike it had just 3.5K miles and I saw from the receipts that the previous owner had the wheel rims painted green with a white stripe stuck around the rim and the hugger painted what seems to be the
exact tenni paint that the factory uses and also matching white stripes like the tank. I thought that it finished the look nicely, Hope your enjoying the BIg Apple.

Hi Steve, I hope you enjoy your GRiSO as much as I do, I thought that GS motorcycles were guzzi dealers! I was last up your neck of the woods at the Ulster GP and was up the Antrim coast road earlier in the summer and didn't get wet for a change, brilliant road!! Be glad to meet up some time.

The hugger looks to be the Skidmarx unit. Mine is for sale, hint, hint! Very Happy

You Irishmen seem to favour the green, who'd have known?
