    Awesome !!!! So I take it that both You and the Mrs. have an appetite for the 2011 SE ? The green with brown leather and spokes ?

    well....
    when it comes to bike styling I am just TOO predictable. The usual heavy metal or goth cafe type look. Black with black trim works for me. Or black with a _small_ contrasting bit of red or grey. I favor something that looks like a cleaned up version of something that walked out of The Terminator.

    I like the way you think My tastes are very similar.

    Friend last week was ooohing and aahhhing over how incredible the white griso 8V looked (and granted.. it's a VERY damn fine looking bike)... but all I kept thinking when looking at the pictures was... but the bike looks so good in black.. or black and red.. or red and black.. (must admit though.. I do think the tenni green/brown leather looks fantastic. Adds an element of class that I was born without a shred of... lol)

    From today's 140 miles on the Griso...I am really starting to like this bike. Tomorrow may or may not be a 450 mile day to pick up a new lens out in East Texas. When I am seriously considering riding a bike 450 miles instead of just having the lens shipped to me you know it must be a fun and relaxing bike to ride! This is not how I am...to quote Pink Floyd.

    The pic where my Griso is next to a V7 was a total fluke. When I rode to breakfast today that was the only parking spot...and already had a Guzzi in it? That shit just does not happen around here!

    Nice ride Micah. For some reason the Guzzis are starting to grow on me. For the longest time I thought they were ugly as I've never cared for the look of the motors (I feel the same about most of the I-Twin Beamers). But lately they are starting to grow on me. Saw a really nice, black Griso that had a cafe fairing and plenty of CF a couple weeks ago.

    There are some really nice custom Guzzis out there and Ghezzi and Brian has put out some really trick bikes.

    Congratulations Aaron, and I know that bike having viewed and strongly considered it at a certain local dealer. I picked up the "new" 1200 Sport 2V from the same showroom on Friday and as I understand, we both traded Aprilias for Guzzis!
