I looked at one in the dealership the other day-beautiful machine! That is until you get to the muffler. That thing would be hitting the garage floor pronto! A nice CF unit would definitely be taking its' place. I've seen Gooses with over 100k and still ridden daily. One was even an automatic! I would love to see them make a comeback in the states.

The California series of cruisers uses the Tonti frame still. That's why they handle so well.

I wish I could go buy a Griso; it's my dream bike, really. My ZX-14 got stolen last week. Hooray Chicago. Now that I'm a student I can't afford to buy a damned thing either. Sigh. And this is my favorite season to ride in too.

This website still sucks. I stay over at advrider.com now, and post under the name Savoir-Faire. You hear me boys? REDESIGN. Your forums are so poorly laid out they remain far too difficult to read.

I really HATE the new forum layout as well. I am getting used to the rest of the redesign though.

I had a big test ride on the Griso. I was on my own. Not a guided tour. So I got to really ride the bike. My conclusion? No thanks. I had a new 1979 Suzuki GS850G (shaft drive)back in the day. Gimme the Suzook anyday over this thing.

With the name GSXRWolf, you wanting a Gixxer was pretty much a forgone conclusion. Otherwise you would be GuzziWolf or GrisoWolf. It just wouldn't be the same.
