    Has anybody tried the SW-Motech SS footpegs?

    They are a little pricey, no surprise, but I like the convertible design so you can remove the rubber insert to get a full cleated peg. I was looking at the stock pegs and they don't look very off-road friendly.

    So, after deciding not to get a new Stelvio and stick with my faithful old 08, I have started on some updates. New, cast wheels ordered - most riding is on road now and my old wheels were corroding outside (spokes) and inside (rim!!) - ultimately I plan on having a road set of wheels and some dual wheels/tyres when I start to get time to do more European touring with gravel raods being a part of the fun.

    I have ordered a bargain GPR titanium can and a laminar lip (I have a taller Givi screen now, but it really upsets the aesthetics and isn't all that effective so I'm going to try this new fangled technology.

    Next up, a new style top end (not through any real worries of cam follower failure - just because mine is a noisy one and seems to be getting more so - too much end float in cams and rockers I reckon). So, like a new bike, but still my good old girl too. :rofl

    Oh - and some reasoanable luggage - I have the Guzzi plastic luggage - never a fan of how it looks and the left pannier is rubbish! Oh, and they both leak like crazy. Maybe Givi trekkers - but interested in opinions on that one...?

    Oh - and this forum has taught me one major thing - I MUST spend some long months exploring the amazing chunks of glorious emptiness you have in the States!! Always great pictures of wilderness.

    I believe you cab pop the rubber out if the stock pegs, Lomax mentioned something about it. It also seems like Vstrom foot pegs might fit, which would open up more aftermarket possibilities.

    Though honestly, given the bike's overall limited suitability for off-road, I've not found any deficiencies with the stock foot pegs as they are.

    I like cleated pegs so I removed the rubber inserts from the stockers. Vibration wasn't a problem but those suckers are a bit small and cheesy looking so I ordered these from MG Cycles. I eagerly await their arrival.

    The V-Strom pegs will definitely fit.
    The Guzzi pegs are now on my Strom (that will go up for sale soon).

    The Moose Racing pegs that I ebay'ed and modified for the strom are now on the Stelvio.
    They have no rubber option, but they grip well. So far the vibrations have NOT been an issue. The pegs look aggressive enough to rip the bottom of the boots up, but they don't, and my boots don't slip on them at all.

    To expand the pegs realm, the Strom and KLR are compatible with each other, too...

    I like this shot my wife took this weekend, parked beside some tulips. Weather was perfect, and we had a nice couple days in the WA backroads.

    Very nice. Is that a '12 or '13? Cannot tell the difference to my B.O '12.

    Looking forward to meeting up.

    Never mind. Mine has more orange up front.

    Enjoy.

    Cool, how did you do that/what software? Take a panoramic and then it wraps it?

    Well one thing is for sure. You can't go by pictures on the orange. Nothing seems to capture the color real well. It even seems to confuse the software on my cameras and my computer. In person it just grabs you where it counts.

    Inaugural ride in Bozeman yesterday as weather was phenomenal. The Guzzi ran like a champ...but sorry...no pics:D

    It's a mode on my Android phone camera. You upload it to Google+ and then it works the magic. I just take advantage of the Google magic. :lol3

    Kirb, you have hit a home run here! This should be a 'must do' for every NTX on the road.

    Would there be one of these for each side, or one that covers both lights? I haven't really dove into the wiring much on this bike.

    One for each side. The wiring harness has two plugs, one for right and one for left so you need two.
