Steve, my 13 Stelvio has been Guzziteched for about a year and 15,000 miles. Runs great and about 36-38 mpg, depending on mood. Expensive.... but I think it was worth it.

Mpg?

My 13 has the Guzzitech setup with a Zard slip on. The instant mpg display shows 42ish mpg, but I don't thing it is the same miles per gallon we are accustomed to. It is a unit of measure known...

Blinking light

Bob, the little red triangle light on the panel blinks, means nothing when the bike is parked. Guess it is to keep the amateur criminals at bay! You can turn it off via the settings page.

Yep, Stelvio

I came from the Stelvio page, put me in line for the top duffle with all the trimmings. I built a top box from welded aluminum and now realize a tank bag and tail pack (duffle) is better.
