    Package from SW-Motech today... crash bars, handguards, tank bag. Now, if I only had the bike to put them on. Oh well... onto the pile they go.

    If you buy handle bar risers from SW-motec check your bolt spacing. My spacing for the bolts is ~ 42mm. The ones below fit my bike.

    I wonder how many of us have these piles of nice stuff for a bike that isn't here yet.

    I had to buy a small rack for my V-Strom for a camping trip next weekend - that stung a bit since if the new bike was to arrive this week I'd be completely sorted already :) Oh and taking a brand new shiny V85TT to a Moto Guzzi Club rally weekend would be soooo much sweeter than taking my V-Strom...

    Not me. I'll be buying from AF1 and lumping in the extras on the bike loan since they deal or carry the stuff I want. All except the aux lights of my choosing.

    Oh yeah - my Matris M46R, sprung and valved for the "solid" boy that I am, arrived last week. It looks lovely. It would look much nicer on my imaginary bike.

    A new toy arrived today. Yippee! The goal here is not so much to transform the OEM Seat Experience into one of comfort and bliss as to get some idea why that experience is so uncomfortable. And unblissful. My thoery is that if the Airhawk does improve things as it deforms under my weight during a long ride, the shape to which it deforms will be the shape the OEM seat should have been in some fortunate alternate universe where it was comfortable. And blissful. This, in turn, will give me some idea what shape to look for in an aftermarket seat.

    Like all of my theories, this may be pure nonsense, based on fantasy and delusion, but hey, it will give me another excuse for a long ride :D

    NOTE: Yes, that is indeed a shoe rack in the background. I do sometimes wonder why She Who Must Be Obeyed feels that shoes should be kept in the garage next to the mountain bikes, but there are Some Things Man Is Not Meant To Know, and this is one of them...

    Glad you clarified on the shoes. I thought they were yours. To each their own.

    My footwear is less refined -- suitable only for surly louts. Here are some views of my last pair of boots :D

    No need to explain, it seems entirely normal :)

    Motorcycling in the air - nice.
    I used to sail, then discovered hang gliding was just like sailing, but in the air. Perhaps that's a more appropriate comparison here.

    Alas...

    This is just something to save my butt while I get in touch with them.

    No 'mode select' and this comes up. Any ideas on a fix or a way to read the fault before I take it to the dealer. Rides OK and has oil.

    Do you have GuzziDiag and the proper adapter? GD will read faults, I believe.

    Can it clear the fault?

    I'm not sure about that, and I cannot find a definitive answer with a brief search. You could unhook your battery for 20-30 sec. That usually resets the ECU. But- if it is a real fault, it will come right back (so maybe you learn something that way?).
    I am NOT well versed on GuzziDiag. I downloaded it and connected to my bike one time, but that's the limit of my personal experience. I'll fire it up this afternoon and see what I can find.

    Have ordered the cables and downloaded the program, see what happens.

    Yes, GuzziDiag can clear the fault. If the fault returns you know you have a problem
    GD will also tell you what the fault is. Do not take the fault name as the answer, that's to simple. Look up the OBD2 DTC code for a better description; there could be several things that are acting up, or interacting.
