    I don't think it would all that difficult to get the Bumot mounting system and adapt it to fit Givi luggage.

    But, in the long run, you probably have the better idea: get the Bumot luggage and mount.


    Or, keep the Givi and feel more secure about what you have in the saddlebags. :D

    Wish the Super T was around when I was stationed at Mt Home AFB back in the early 80’s! Would have been WAY more fun than my Seca 750!

    I know that feeling so well. I'd been eyeing one for about a year, but didn't get my hands on one (blue 2012. like yours) until a few months ago. I put a little over 3K miles on it before I totaled it (uninsured, unlicensed driver pulled across my lane of traffic from a side street). I liked mine so much that before I even got the insurance settlement check, I bought another just like it...same year, same color.

    A question for you 012 yr owners?
    Have you noticed the so-called vibration issues related to the Gen-1 clutch baskets?
    I have a line on an 012 w/3400miles, some farkles and $7999.
    Shoot me your thoughts and seat-o-the pants feelings please.
    I'm on the fence w/this one. Thanks a bunch, G, in Vegas .

    Yes, but by no means it's it a deal breaker. I picked up a '12 with 10,000 miles on it about a month ago. A little over 2,000 miles later and I'm in love. Would I like to have the updated clutch basket and cam chain tensioner? Sure. Am I in any rush to get that done? Not at all. Great bike.

    Would not make it a deal breaker with a good find. I have a very early serial number ‘12 and it developed the vibrations fairly early on, but also have ridden some later serial number ‘12’s with higher milage which were perfectly smooth. So it depends on the bike, but I would expect the clutch will be a factor at sometime. I ended up changing the clutch basket to a ‘14 and the vibrations went away completely.

    That bike your looking at seems to be a great deal if you don’t want the cruise control of the ‘14’s and later.

    Thanks for your thoughts and input gentleman. All things considered, , the vibe issue is not a deal breaker. Just a simple concern thats all.
    Sure cruise control would be nice but a simple throttle lock would suffice for some right hand relief. I've become kinda friendly with the sales dude at the stealer.
    With the new models coming out and a nice down pmnt, I'm sure it could be had for much less. We shall see :hmmmmm. G.

    Is it at one of the Ride Now dealers? If so they will try and balloon the heck out of the price.

    I wish people would stop getting ripped by them so they can go out of business.

    Just purchased my 2013. Just under 10k miles. It's really not bad vibration wise. A little more vibration than my inline 4 had. Even the inline 4 was buzzy. It's a different frequency of vibration.

    Less vibration than a single cyl or Vtwin. A little more than an inline 4.

    I noticed the vibration when I test drove it and, at the time I didn't know about the clutch issue I just figured it was the personality of the bike. I love the bike and I will address the clutch issue in time but I like wrenching almost as much as riding so I see it as a good thing to do on a cold snowy day! The only up side to having a cold snowy day!!.

    My 12 really started the clutch vibe at 75,000 miles.
    It's so smooth now at 167,000 miles, I don't think it has ever run better..
    I need a vacation!

    My current '12 has the clutch basket and cam chain tensioner upgrades and I can tell a big difference over my previous '12 for sure. I like it, but didn't notice anything wrong with the previous one until I rode this one.
