You don't have the garage space Pete, remember.
Looking good Huzo. All shined up & nowhere to go..... too near "the wet" to do a Cape York run, even IF they allow you Victorians loose on the rest of Australia. Maybe winter 2021? In the meantime there's always Halls Gap, (maybe) the Flinders Ranges in Summer, Oodnadatta, Birdsville, Uluru, or Mt. Buffalo/Hotham/Falls etc. along the spine of the Southern Alps if you're still not allowed out of Victoria!There's plenty of lovely wild miles to explore fairly close to home, without leaving the state.I think those Zard cans are the mellowest sounding available to date for the V85. I'd still like to hear a cored modification of the standard can too. Apart from the Zard, I think it's still one of the best looking mufflers for the bike available.
Back in '84 I met a couple of masochistic lads from Reggio di Calabria (deepest south Italy) @ the Austrian GP, Salzbugring . Fast-Freddie Spencer won both 250 & 500 races incidentally.Silly buggers were just starting a return trip to Nordkapp on old Lambrettas! Those step-through postie bikes (Hondas, not Lambrettas) have a solid reputation as long-distance rides. Those hundreds (thousands?) of kms. of corrugations won't be kind to either the Honda or pilot, however. You'll need a suspension upgrade, a massage or 2 & regular Radox or Badedas baths methinks.
Hereís the latest..Not much left to do, almost there.https://youtu.be/ji_1RUDuRIgActually, it sounds like my mateís J1 Auster with the Gypsy Major motor at idle.
much more traditional looking without the beak. i like it. now, take off the dual head lights, replace it with a deer-hunter type 8 inch round light and add a bikini fairing. get rid of the high exhaust and add a la franconi and your conversion will be complete.
Putting these on my new V85tt when it is ready to pick up, mounting on the crash bars. Will run through a Skene controller to make them drl's as well as spots.https://www.stedi.com.au/25-cree-led-motorcycle-driving-spot-light.html
Looks great Huzo. One of the cleanest looking modern Guzzi's, or modern bikes I have seen in a long time. All the hard work paid off in a classic, simplistic look. I imagine the aesthetics all go to Hell when you sit on the bike, but that's true for most of us.
Looks great Huzo! I wanted to go a similar route with mine, but my side cases are on most of the time which takes away from the looks. I also had the Aprilia fender on mine with a 6 bulb led light mounted under the headlights, but still felt it didnít look right and went back to the beak. I also blacked out the windscreen which helps make it disappear and hides all the mounting hardware underneath and makes the display easier to see.I love the way you incorporated your headers into the y-pipe, really a clean look! Keep up the great work!
I needed to arrange some protection for the front of the engine and thought I would have the most success with a low mounted guard.I donít suggest it is more attractive, but when done in red, it will begin to blend..Before..After..Walk around..https://youtu.be/bT5mUS3_EKA
IMHO that is so much better HuzI rode a v85 just to see ..... as everyone said it was good and sensible and i think that they are finally getting some more heart in the small block motorbut it is ugly especially in Mcdonalds paint and with a beak - i dont mind a real motocross bike with high flappy front mudguards but on a 100% road bike the beak a cosmetic thing that is not at all cosmetic
Although much better now, you'll still be copping a fair bit of road grime thrown up from the front tyre that'll end up oven-baked to your black engine casings.Would one of those Pyramid Plastics "Fenda-Extanda" not look too ugly on the trailing edge of your new front mudguard? Assuming of course it's actually available for Aprilia's Dorsoduro mudguard.
Thatíll be the go KD..Probably only fitted for more serious expeditions, will still be better than the high one in that respect.The final decision will be made to keep or reject the low setup, once I see how much I can trim the fork covers..They look pox.
get two nice size Cantalopes and stuff them in the front of your jacket.
