So how is your new ride did you buy new or second hand do like the performance and the ride? I'm so much more comfortable on the Griso and love the torque. Have to catch up for a ride and coffee sometime.
No, those are Rizoma and Craig got them from Roland at Motovation Accesory in Austin. Little bling-eee for my taste but pretty comfortable even in my super
Moto gloves I usually use on the street.
"Mine"? Micah, are you taking possession of the Griso? The black one is a nice looking bike!
2007.5 Tuono-Black, with 1102cc's of micah's badness!
2012 Griso-Silver and black, Agostini pipe, some carbon bits.
2006 Vespa GT200-bitubo suspension all around, Malossi big-bore, head and cam, Akrapovic pipe, all put together by Micah.
gone 2002 Caponord-Oyster gray (as faithful as a hound dog)
gone Futura-Red (on the AF1 showroom floor. Get some.)
The more I learn about people, the more I appreciate rocks.
Mentally yes, the Griso is mine. Emotionally too but alas, not financially. I am on the edge of buying a crashed vespa to play with though!
Well, I went to the Austin Store on Friday and did not see "my" Griso...oh well, maybe in another life, or maybe it was out on loan?
So...not sure if this guy is a "member" here or not...BUT, I think these are really cool bikes! Now I know I am officially getting old, really old...

It's my "cheap side" talking. These bikes have to be like, real cheap to buy right? Whichever one is lighter in kilos and $$$ would be my speed considering my dirt riding skillset.
Watch out for cracked rims and rear discs, they aren't 'Common' but it did happen on some of them, mainly the Q-1000's I believe. Treasure your TPS and burn incence at a shrine for it. They have long been unobtainable and I know of no replacements. I hasten to add that doesn't mean there aren't replacements. Simply I've never found one! Best thing you can do if your TPS goes tits is to take the motor out and fling in one from a V11 Sport along with its ECU and stuff. Lighten up the flywheel and you can turn 'em into a real "I think I'll Shit My Pants Now' piece of fun!!!
I rode up to the uzzi National Rally from LA with my mate Chuck on one last year. That thing was a hoot, it had a buckled front wheel that was like a huge potato crisp! It was one of the oddest handling POS I've ever ridden and believe me, I've ridden some real munters in my time!!!
