Well we managed 3200 miles from Aberdeenshire to Ried in the Austrian Tyrol and the bike was fantastic. Even with a standard seat neither me nor the wife suffered from sore arses, which was a boost !
I will write up a proper report once I can get all the photos downloaded but there were so many highlights its difficult to put them in any order.
With regards to the bike itself, I found out a few things on the long ride.
First of all the MRA Screen with the extra bit was amazing, I could ride along with the visor cracked open and didn't get any bugs in my face, just fresh air and the main flow was over the helmet ! The screen either took the hit or the top of my helmet which didn't matter and as it was so hot it was a godsend.
The Givi Removable rack and standard panniers were brilliant too, enabling me to take the Pannier Rack off for the 5 days we stayed in one place, it was especially useful going up the Stelvio when I dropped the bike (slowly!) because if the rack had been in place it would probably been bent.
One downside I noticed was on bumpy roads, fully loaded up with 2 people, panniers and top box the centre stand touched down on corners which was a bit of a worry, even with with the suspension wound right up. Still just had to take it easy on road like that.
Generally, after 2 weeks of riding I was really impressed.
I bought a cheap Chinese ((£35) Bluetooth headset which worked brilliantly with my old Garmin 765 and that too was a godsend, especially finding our way to the hotels we had booked, The screen was a bit awkward to see but it is a car one so only to be expected, I actually found the speech much more useful and was well impressed, even played my music on the long haul back up the UK from the Channel Tunnel.
Anyway here are a few choice photos !!
I also have a video of the Stelvio which I will eventually upload !!
