    Hey all -

    I put up a post to the Griso section as well, but I'll introduce myself here too. I'm a soon-to-be owner of a 2009 Griso 8V, with delivery coming in the next few weeks. I live in Milwaukee, and although I have a local dealer (Reina) nearby, I located my bike online. The Griso board is hard at work making sure my bike gets the kinks worked out properly, but I wanted to introduce myself to the locals as well.

    I've been thinking about the Griso since it's first positive review in Cycle World in ~2007. For the last 6mos or so, I've been looking seriously. I finally found a good deal on a 1000mi 2009 and jumped. A good friend has a '67 V7, a V11 Sport, and a homemade cafe Guzzi, so I blame him for the interest. My last modern bike was a '02 Speed Triple, but I've had Honda Fours since I started riding. I've used my 400/4 as a daily ride for over 5 years now.

    I'm thrilled about the new bike. The internet is a powerful thing, and in my mind makes the prospect of a Guzzi much less daunting than say 10 years ago. Hopefully I'll catch up with a few local members at some of the local events in 2011.

    - Matt

    new guzzi rider in the Milwaukee area as well! I just bought a 2016 Audace with 70 miles on it! i got it last week and as you know, i haven't been able to ride it but just a mile or so because of the snowstorms. I went to RT&T to check out the Indian Scouts they had. I sat on them and they just felt like pups. They're just too low. I want a bike that will handle well, even if it's a cruiser. my grandpa swore by his 1978 cali and at the time I didn't think it was cool. anyway I did my research on guzzi's, and they're still a quality machine and they look good to boot. I'm just waiting for it to dry up and I dont care how cold it is, it's on like Donkey Kong.

    Congrats on the Audace. I live in the Waukesha area and look forward to hooking up with the Wisconsin Guzzi club on a few outings this year. I just joined their club. I have a new Eldorado that I also purchased from RT&T down the road from me. Looks like we have a few badgers on the site from the metro Milwaukee area.
