Well a pice of metal fall my Givi planners. it looks like it was kept in place on bottom front of the bag with RTV.  No structure damages just cosmetic.  Oíwell so much for all metal panniers. I did a prepackaged for trial run for my Frist 2500 mil. trip ( Sturgis sd.)Rudy

There isn't a motorbike or metal pannier tough enough to stand up to Rudy  :laugh:


When, or if, things really get bad, I expect Rudy to engineer a solution that will let him outlast cockroaches.

Yual know put your helmet on first befor getting on your v85.  Today I fell down for the 4 th time. Parked between two cars, went to take off turning right bike die, got tangled up in Guzzi and car bumper, I was on the low side but my new Givi bagged & car bumper kind of kept me kind of up.  Well a young man tried to help, didnít do much go.  I told him just put it in gear & put kick stand down, I untangled  and got my feet under me & my back against the bike and up it came. Got on the Guzzi an off I went man standing their with his mouth open it all happened fast ,  acted like this happens day and road off.Rudy.

No damage to the car bumper or Givi bags (no metal came off yet) just my pride, what little I have.  Another note I traded theCalf. Custom with the S&S engine,off for a 08 Triumph speed master. & some boot.  Iím into the speed master for less than $600 & got a home for the spider sidecar and Iíve got a raked tree for it.  That going to be a sweet ride when I get it  put together. And got me keys for a cabin back in the wood at Sturgis sb. To stay in while I am their(2or3 days) wonít need to megeil to much with other people, just wild life.  Maybe me and the V85 can stay upright.Rudy
