Does it come with a longer straw!
Finally got mine a little sister!
Had a chance to configure new Nav VI and try it on a short ride. Visibility much better than Nav V, choice of streaming from internal micro SD card, iPhone or over Bluetooth. So far I like it! Didn't fit as well in the dash of my K1600, but that's a topic for a different forum!
can you control apps like pandora/amazon music/spotify/etc from the NAV 6?
Installed this 30L Givi Dolomite top case for commuting and weekend runs. It's small enough so it doesn't look too dorky, but holds enough to be functional. $295 shipped from Revzilla and popped right onto my existing monokey rack.
Necessity is the mother of invention. Never liked the OEM tankbag straps. But I always like the color and and lines of the OEM bag and the keeepin it stock look.
So I finally did the strapless OEM tank bag mod- SW motech tank ring and bag mount went on smooth as butter.
$47.00 for the SWMotech tank ring. My fix for the blinding map reflection is simply covering the map window with a xtra large dreadlocks stocking hair net it works perfect canceling out any reflection and costs about $2.
Tank bag with SWMotech ring carefully aligned and attached with four interior screws. (Looks dam near factory)
Tank ring specific for keyless bike
No straps and very secure loaded. Bag does not touch paint. Can see my gauges fine.
My Dreadlock hair net!! Total sun reflection blocker!
Nice looking TC!
Give Motostorm.it a look. Very competitive prices and fast shipping fedex air. No state tax, and no customs duty.
I ordered (13) accessories all Givi. Completely accessorize my wife's bone stock 650 Vstrom for $1700.00 shipped to my front door. Same identical order state side..$3300.00. I did the install and everything arrived in excellent condition. Happy wife!!
Mt Mitchell yep that is snow..last October.
Nice! I've considered doing the same thing as I don't like the OEM GSW tankbag attachment, plus the wimpy buckles self-released once when the bike took a nap in the woods.
Where did you get the SW Motech piece that you attached to the bottom of the bag? I've looked before but could't find one to buy separately.
I have the SW-Motech system on my GS. I like it. Great for gas station time.
One word of caution. If you end up riding in a sandstorm. Be sure to spray up under there after to flush out the sand. I dam near had to pry my bag off after a Death Valley ride and blinding sandstorm. The gear mechanism got clogged up.
Yeah man- I've purchased stuff from Motostorm before and they were great! Love Mt Mitchell BTW!
Gave up on expecting a DHL delivery of a pair of Mitas E07's... two weeks I've waited, so I told them to send them back for a refund , and put on a part worn Tourance I had ... then took it for a ride
Added Touratech lower crash bars in black. Also, pulled the rear footpegs and mounts since I only ride solo, for a cleaner look.
Added tank decal set.... I could swear it gave her an extra 10hp LOL

Can you control apps like pandora through it? Like "next track" sort of thing?
My experience with DHL, at least where delivery in the U.S. is concerned, is equally dismal. For the life of me, I don't know how that company stays in business. I suppose it's because they represent the only courier option in many parts of the world.
Without knowing any details.. keep in mind that DHL (Express..) in the US does not do domestic shipping (i.e. within the US) so any packages that you receive in the US via DHL have come from abroad and will need to clear customs, which is something out of their direct control. And as far as staying in business.. they're doing just fine. Now Ontrac.. that company baffles me.
I had a lamentable experience trying out an Innovv K1 and had to send the unit back to China via DHL. I learned the hard way that DHL will charge your credit card additional fees beyond those charged using their website. Even having a DHL agent verify weight and dimensions makes no difference. Plus, while DHL may be a cheap means of shipping to the US, it's shockingly expensive to ship from the US.
Interlining with local carriers is a common practice and some courier services do it much better than others. I've spent the better part of my lengthy career shipping products all over the world. DHL is the worst with which to deal, in my experience, whether I'm receiving shipments from overseas or arranging door-to-door deliveries in Thailand.
Perhaps your experience has been better, but I'll do anything reasonably possible to keep from patronizing DHL if I can. Unfortunately, that's not always an option.
Sorry for the thread-wandering. Back on topic now I hope.
Mounted a new front tire on my 1150GS, at 73,441 miles. Not as bad an ordeal as the rear tire last year, but 1.5 hours is still too long. This sucker took two attempts with an 80psi air supply to seat all around. I probably should have cleaned the old rubber off the seating area on the rim.
Took 2 ounces of steel weights off, and balanced with ~2 oz of dynabeads. Seems to work OK also on this front tire - did the same last year for the rear, and can't complain so far.
