Above all stop pandering to posts from morons like Venteuri who can't even spell Venturi properly.

Laugh Gotta figure this out.

I just bought, from an inmate, an 06 Moto Guzzi Breva 1100, black/black, factory sidecases, Givi screen and top case mount.

I've since got a Giantloop Fort Rock soft topbag, so my wife can be comfy and carry a metric shit ton of stuff.

As soon as I can figure out pix I'll post shots of the different ways I can configure her.

Speaking of Sport Tourers, now that I'm finally back working days after 11 years of nights, I've been seeing a lot of ST bikes being ridden by what I assume are people commuting. The majority of the bikes have been FJR's with some BMW's and a few others to round out the mix.

So at least here in the Pacific NW the topic question has been answered.

They were hiding from the cold and rain and are back on the roads now that the weather is finally improving

Thanks Kawasakirob, it was! Did the seat, made a custom mount for bags, and dropped the pegs a bit and it was perfect. At 65-70 MPH the wind is just enough to keep the pressure off my wrists. It is also the speed where the exhaust noise is equal to the wind through the helmet, it was bliss! Here is a vid of the more enthusiastic moments of the journey. https://vimeo.com/68466403
