Planned trip with a few mates to hike Snowdon in the UK. Rather than join them in the cage, I opted for a solo ride from Southern England to North Wales. 600 mile round trip over 3 days. Simply stunning. Ridden Welsh roads a few times now, and never fail to impress. As you can see from tyre pick, left some rubber down as well.

Bought a Triumph Daytona 955i earlier this year. Lovely bike, quick, handles etc. however, I do not have the talent, bravery, or want to lose license to get most out of it and return from every ride feeling it could have been better. The GRiSO makes me smile every time, and pics like this reaffirm the love affair. As we all know, these bike do everything. They will pootle to the shops, they will take luggage for a trip, and they can hold their own hooning. What a bike. Decided I’m selling the Triumph and spending the cash a mini GRiSO project to make this bike even better and more capable. First thing I am looking at is front forks and rear shock.

The Welsh roads do seem to hammer tyres

It’s the well maintained roads. Compared to English roads, the Welsh roads are like a race track.

What benefits you seen with those mods. Are there any downsides?

I havnt put too many miles on it yet..maybe 500mi..50/50 in mountain twisties and on the slab..but I have experienced no downsides except in my wallet...it tracks beautifully and takes rough pot holes lvery well..the deep pot holes used to jar my arm's and spine!
I'm about to do a 10,000 KM 3 week long trip on it in a month..I should know all I need to know about the set up after that.

Hi Kindoy2, how was the trip and how was the new suspension set up?
