If that is the case, then the logical definitions of the Griffon and Aanca should be as follows:

def G logride #0 #1 (nw (n)) (nw (w)) (ne (n)) (ne (e)) (sw (s)) (sw (w)) (se (s)) (se (e));
def GL lograys #0 (nw (n)) (nw (w)) (ne (n)) (ne (e)) (sw (s)) (sw (w)) (se (s)) (se (e));
def A logride #0 #1 (n (nw)) (w (nw)) (n (ne)) (e (ne)) (s (sw)) (w (sw)) (s (se)) (e (se));
def AL lograys #0 (n (nw)) (w (nw)) (n (ne)) (e (ne)) (s (sw)) (w (sw)) (s (se)) (e (se));

This is because of how logride's documentation says it should be used to describe turning riders, as shown below.

logride from to ...

...A turning rider needs directions in a nested pair of parentheses. The directions before the second pair of parentheses indicate the beginning of a turning rider's move, and what comes in the inner pair of parentheses indicates how the turning rider continues to repeat its move.
