Hi my name is Tim. A while back, I went for a test ride on a new GRiSO and a few days later went back to get it! I was hooked to say the least.

This is my first non-sportbike (and Moto Guzzi for that matter), traded a GSX-R 750 for the GRiSO, and can't see myself ever going back. The GRiSO is much more comfortable, ridiculously fun to ride, looks and sounds incredible!

Come to find out, big V-twins make me tingle down there.

Just recently got back from a trip to North Carolina/Tennessee to visit the infamous Tail of the Dragon and many other amazing roads. What an incredible place the Smokey Mountains are!

The yellow SV650 in the back is my friend Shane. Unfortunately his bike had issues and had to rent one. At least he still got to go riding!

All stock, except for the license plate and rear signal mounting hardware and removed the hideous carbon canister thingy.

Another Moto Guzzi tragic - welcome to our little piece of heaven. We are all a little bent here, some more than others...

When you are ready, sidle up to Beetle and ask nicely, very nicely, and he may slip you a new map that will put a bigger grin on your dial than you thought possible.

Yeah Tony, I have been reading about Beetle's sorcery with our ECU's. If his maps produce huge smiles as people say, I will have to get a larger helmet - as I already grin like an idiot riding this thing!

Holy crap, is your header actually turning a nice blue color off the right valve?

Hey Tim,

Welcome to the Ghetto. Beautiful bike indeed! Better get a larger helmet regardless of whether or not you get a new map...it's inevitable. Takes about an hour after getting off the bike before I can even see my ears again. Very Happy
