Just found out about this site a few days ago.
Just got back from a 4000 Kms trip to the Gaspe peninsula in Quebec.
GRiSO 8V Tenni was awesome until the end when it decided to blow the back tire 400kms from home.

brgds to all

Bonjour Luca,

Welcome to the obsession of owning a GRiSO.

The Tenni is one that caught my eye also, great looking bike and a blast to ride, I must admit the new 2015 colour is a cool
looking machine too.

Do you have it from new or bought second hand, any photo's?

Guzzi Cat,

Sounds like you got to know the bike during the trip alright!

I have a Tenni as well [ 2011 ] - really enjoying it and my first trip into GRISOLAND.

Hey O, i’ve seen a few Tennis, nice bike!

Wondering if you might have some Toronto info for me.

I just tonight decided to ride to Toronto and catch a concert.

It’s at Sony on the 19th.

As you know, taking a bike to an exotic faraway destination like Toronto has some associated difficulties, mainly to do with
parking safely, lodging well but not expensively, and in my case, not being too far from the venue.

From far away, the research can be tough.

Got any suggestions as to lodging etc, maybe know someone who’s got an AirBnB close to the Sony theatre?

Cheers!

I always like to stay at the Novatel downtown and reasonable prices depending whats going on.

Good underground parking .  its right behind the sony center and in the middle of everything.

Just looked .This is also a good deal

Not sure about airbnb

St Lawrence market is walking distance just east of the sony center ...  Great place to visit and eat.

What concert?

“The the”, Matt Johnson et cie.

Brilliant, I think, and my wife doesn’t want to go.

Still waiting on Florence for my final decision.

Bonjour,

I'm a little South of you Smile but also have a Tenni. My daughter goes to York though so I've had a few trips up to Toronto.

Took a short trip to Quebec back in January and loved it!

Best wishes on Flo.

Looks like she just turned your way. I lived in Chuck in '91, the Hugo devastation was still everywhere, and folks were traumatized.

As a news cameraman, I was out with the storms a bunch of times, and they're no joke.
Then there was Katrina.

Just took a road trip to fancophone Canada. Loved it! Want a moose license!
