I am pleased as I don't want to see any other Caponords like mine!!

It was a great bike and will be sorely missed even though I am replacing it with something different

Sticking with V twins (L twin to be technically correct)

The only thing to let me down was British Rail, 1hr 40mins late getting in to London

The Multistrada is a peach, comfortable with the DP gel seat and Powerbronze DB screen

MPG was 50+ running at 85MPH for most of journey (M25/M11/A12) the only thing to worry me is the useless fuel gauge which lies...

After putting some miles on my new ride, I found that the Aprilia windshield is not great on long trips - though I really like it otherwise. I read mixed reviews of the taller Givi screen so I was hesitant to spend the cash on it. I read on the AF1 forum of a guy who fit a tall Suzuki Burgman screen to his Capo with good results so I thought about doing the same thing.

I work 3 miles from National Cycle and contacted them. They had 40 of these Burgman screens that they were selling for $36 so I drove over and grabbed one. A little heat from a propane heater to tweak the shape, a few minutes with a belt sander to remove some excess holes, and I am very happy with my new touring screen.








There are two leftover mounting holes that I may re-visit later but they don't really bother me so I'm just enjoying it for now....
