My 2022 V85 was almost the same with the gearbox at new. After a few thousand K it' loosened up a lot-a LOT.Over 70 per on the highway the indicated mpg does drop a noticeable bit-at over 80 it's in the low to mid 20's. At 70 to 75 mid 40's or so.I'm not sorry I have it-it's my 4th Guzzi and they've all been great. Only one left in the fleet as we massively downsized to an impossibly small garage with house and only room for one now, or I'd still have them ALL!
BP.I think that particular bike must have had an issue with the shifting. Hopefully just adjustment. I am often surprised at how some dealers let the bikes out for test rides, out of adjustment, tire pressure off. So many things that are unforced errors that cost sales.
Since getting my V85TT I've never even thought of the Norge I sold to get it.
....I have to admit I like the support shown on this forum. One of the worries of owning an uncommon bike is help when you need it. Just a few days on this forum and it's apparent there is an MG community out there. I see those suggesting sharing trip routes in the event of trouble along the way so a member can help. I see forum members that appear to know each other well. I like it.
Wheels are cleaned and double sealed with marine sealant and 3M tape. yes, I waited for th sealant to fully cure before taping. Waiting for the correct valve stems to arrive - damn 8mm rim holes. Will spoon on the Pirellis once they arrive and see if it holds air.
kid,I should have been more clear. At 70 per meant mph, not mpg. I wish! But at 70mph my mpg is mid 40's.Sorry for any confusion.And, I miss the HECK out of my Jackal. If you recall, I bought it from the original owner. he bought it back! and I told him if it's ever for sale again just ring me up and I'm right over to get it. THAT bike was perfect. And I'd have kept it if I had room at the new home in AZ. As it is, I'll figure out a way to store it come hell or high water-that's how much I thought of that particular bike.
That says a LOT. The Norge is hard to beat as a sport / touring bike.The new Blue with Red Frame is my favorite yet. Even the beak is growing on me
I rode my new Triumph T120 home, 90 miles. I thought the handling was a bit heavy. Checked tire pressure the next day, 20 lbs front and rear. Wonder why the steering was heavy and the ride so smooth.kk
Watching more videos - one said the 85TT may be cramped for taller riders - I am 6'1" - can those of similar stature comment on that?
A tall saddle makes it almost too roomy.
I bought this used Corbin on eBay. This was a custom job using the OEM base. As you can see it's quite a bit taller, esp near the tank. It's very comfortable when riding but a little challenging at stops. I will look at lowering/narrowing the front portion so I can slide forward and get my feet down a bit better.
