they are not H&B....but SW-Motech(german) the model trax.They are all black aluminium+plastic on the corners outside...inside they have silicone for waterproof

They sell them unbranded since spring but due to the good price you should wait a bit....I saw some before 3-4 weeks in a store for the first time

If that doesn't scream signature line I don't know what does.

I love everything about that bike except the front six inches of the fairing.

Dow. I wrote an email to the Australian sales contact with about a page worth of questions about the TT, availability of the 2 models (as it's not listed at any dealer's site on their list), pricing..etc just to bounce it back from the address.

Looks like Guzzi Australia is just using a free website template that comes with some inbuilt email addresses and there isn't anyone on the other side :) No phone listed either, just a fax number (probably redirected straight to the bin). Ok, not complaining, it's a small company, but still, if you decide you put up a website, give it another 5 minutes to finish it or just don't do it.

If I ever get the time, I will try to talk to some dealers to figure if anyone has a clue in NSW.

I liked it but didn't love it. The Aprilia Desoduro stand right across the aisle seemed more interesting. I wouldn't buy either right now.

I had the opportunity to see/sit on one at the Seattle show. Not as pretty, IMHO, as the GS, but about 14,238 times more comfortable. At least for us short-legged Hobbit-meets-Mule types. At that juncture I decided that I simply HAD to be the first kid on my block to own one, wife's opinion be damned. But, no listing on M-G's US website !! So we wait....and wait.... Then again, being a proud new owner of one of BMW's illustrious new twin GS's, I'm used to waiting.
