Well Witch,

I must say I really like the glove box. However I would prefer the extra fuel capacity since much of my riding is in remote areas or longer trips where finding fuel can be a challenge or the frequent stops for fuel are a hassle.

That said I love the Guzzi. I just wish the $ required to get the large tank precludes me from doing so.

I'm with ya on that! I have found it to be one of the most useful features of my Stelvio. I would probably be willing to trade it off for the giant fuel tank of the NTX, but I know I would miss it.

My glove box holds the key for my 1st generation Stucchi Aux Tank.

I didn't think I'd use the glove box, but it turns out that it's the perfect spot for my cell phone and my point-and-shoot camera. I'm old-school and don't have a cell phone with a decent camera...my phone is mildly retarded. But at least it survives when I drop it.

my first-gen Multistrada had a similar glove box, it was pretty handy.

I have to justify having so many tank bags though
My Wolfman Rainier works perfect on the NTX.

Unfortunately the Guzzi tank bag prevents me from using my glove box much. Would be super handy for sunglasses and the door opener remote, but with the tank bag it's much too cumbersome.

no, first-generation Multistrada
the right front of the fairing along the side of the tank had a fold out glove-box section
