    Have you consulted our international Guzzi expert in Canada Phil?

    I really like the Guzzi Griso. Like this one spotted at a Guzzi rally in Canada.

    A few scrapes on the plastics and usual corrosion on the exhaust, engine and forks etc, nothing a bit of tlc (and waxoil) won't sort.
    150 mile run home on a bike thats only done a few hundred miles in the last 5 years eeek!
    Fortunately, in typical Honda style, she runs sweet as a nut, never missed a beat and what a giggle through the twisties!

    That's nothing that a going over with an oily rag and a change of fluids can't remedy.

    I rode the blood bike that we have for the first time last week. What did I think? Quite quick, corners well. Didn't find it economical and not enough gears. Oh and small.

    Apart from that it was fine. DDW has one I believe.

    Hey, don't knock it Nick, they are a better laugh to ride than the fuddy duddy image portrays and they go round the twisties surprisingly well a bit like an AT/Alp ;)
    I have had some brill 'grand tourers' ie decent bikes for ~1k and I'm back into something that'll appreciate rather than depreciate

    To be fair, most of my rides at the moment consist of mainly motorway and I find myself longing for some proper weather protection add in too much time with the bike parked outside near the sea and that pains me with a newer/expensive bike, so there is a bit of logic going on.

    I only have finances/space for 1 bike atm so one has to go by September....!

    Bit like my old CB500 courier bike, only even more annoyingly perfect. Sensible storage, brilliant wind protection, no oily sprockets, better economy than a Pan and totally reliable. I park my bike next to a mate who works at Heathrow. He has commuted to work and back from the west end for 12 years on his Deuville, it's never once let him down. Every time I'm down in the car park fiddling and fixing with something , he just comes down gets on it and rides off ! Baaaastad.
