A quick mention about the aux lights. This too has been discussed many times here and I did experience a failure myself, 3000 miles from home. I will say though that there is much adieu about nothing in that the actual culprit is the wire coming off the bulb itself. It will rub on the interior of the housing until it rubs through and grounds out. Since it is tied to the main fuse, the bike stops when that fuse blows. Roadside fix: Turn off lights, replace fuse, and be on your way.Long term fix: Add insulation to the tail coming off the bulb. I used 3M fiberglass insulating tape to mine. I also have inspected them on occasion and everything has held up well. That was 2012. I have not fused the lights mainly because I decided to fix was easy and cheap. But, adding a fuse to each one is not a horrible idea by any stretch. I even prepped a couple extra bulbs for if one went out but have yet to need them. Yes, 5 minutes and some tape per bulb and you're in pretty good shape. John Henry
How many dealers still have leftover Stelvios?I noticed that you preferred to pick it at SE location, are there any left in that direction???
On another note, and a short detour on the thread, how is The Great One doing these days??John Henry
I have seen several NTX where the owner removed the halogen lights and used the mounting points for road pegs. When I have asked they said they worked well. Most of them had mounted replacement lamps on the forks. This takes care of two issues. I have thought about doing this for about six years now on my 12' Stelvio but every year I start riding again and never get around to it. For me its just never been quite enough of an issue to get it done.
Regarding wrists, I am heading that way quicker than I would like. I have some sort of tendonitis in the base of both thumbs that really hampers guitar playing. If motorcycle gloves are too tight it causes constant pain. Oh well I am 48 as of January of this year. Better ride bikes and play guitar while I can. It amazes me how many old geezers (apparently at least ten years on me if not more) can still ride a bike and hammer a guitar and I can barely do both it seems. Bad genetics I guess.
I suffered this condition for years until it reached the point I could not pull the clutch lever with out extreme pain. I was also to the point I was dropping heavy tools due to the pain. In my case it was osteoarthritis attacking my base thumb joints, this can be repaired with a surgical procedure. Its commonly called an oyster procedure by orthopedic surgeons that specialize in hands. I had it done to both base thumb joints and have been pain free ever since. Best thing I have ever had done. I would suggest finding a good orthopedic surgeon that specializes in hands and have it checked out to see if it can be taken care of.
I haven't had a chance to really learn what the Griso likes, but since it's a 2012 roller 8V like the Stelvio I expect it will be a bit more rev-happy. Let's face it, it's a big V-twin, so it's inherently a torque-oriented engine, but you will quickly, easily and pleasantly figure out what works best for your riding style.
