    A bit more self isolating today.
    Had a ride round Cheshire, England. It was relatively warm and sunny. I suspect we will be in full lockdown by Monday/Tuesday so tried to make the best of it.

    I know. My mates are all for the latest levers, exhaust, anodised bolts etc etc. They kept telling me I 'needed' to get an 'Akra' . So I did. For £2 from eBay haha.

    I managed to key my old Givi trekker to the Yamaha key. It was a kit off eBay but was super easy to fit. couple of screws and a cir-clip.

    Has anyone got photos of the Yamaha pannier racks on the bike sans cases?
    Trying to decide whether to go Yamaha or other.

    Thanks.

    I’ve just fitted the Outback Motortek pannier rails on mine after they were recommended by Mosko Moto. Look very nice and extremely sturdy. There is also space to get a Rotopax inside the left hand frame which I will do shortly.

    Check them out here..

    THIS - This is why I'm interested in this bike. I have the 2016 60th Anv Super Tener 1200. Great reliable bike for touring and canyon carving in the Hill Country of Texas. But I want a good, lighter reliable bike for moderate off roading. I'm not going to be pulling nac nacs or a double backflip on the bike.

    So been busy farkling whilst locked down here in the U.K. so today I fitted a Fuzeblock, ran the wiring for the Garmin GPS to an SW Motech GPS mount on the crossbar, and fitted a 2.1A USB port onto the handlebars.
    I’ve also fitted Outback Motortek pannier rails for my Mosko BC setup.

    Now all I need to be able to do is ride the bloody thing!!!

    Hello T700 lovers,

    I'm searching for somebody based in Germany (or close to it) that could help me to verify if my freeclamps developed for the Guzzi V85TT could be used for the T700 too. These clamps was designed to have an ultra-low profile to avoid the navi-device to stick out too much.
    Also, I would (eventually) need help for the photos of the mounting manual.

    Unfortunately I do not own a T700... I don't have enough money for a divorce (at the moment :D ).
    In case, you can contact me with a private message.

    Du bist ein ganz angefressener! Ich bekomme die Schublade nicht mehr zu. Umglaublich. Hatte so was in "Kleinformat" schon mal bei uns gesehen, das waren aber italienische Möppels. Mach weiter so.
    Auch dein T700 Umbau finde ich sehr interessant. Habe vor auch eine zu kaufen. Tschö. Nelliedriver
