    Sold my 1990 Mille this year and switched to a 2016 Eldorado .
    Really enjoying the jump in power + technology ( .. and those Brakes! )

    give-lit.jpg Wanted a Top Case for storage and to add additional rear lighting & motion-sensitive braking I’d seen on late BMW’s and Hawgs but this just didn’t seem available for Guzzies.

    After much shopping around all I came up with was DIY. ( Im sure someone will prove me wrong now .. )
    I found the ‘Admore Light Bar (8”) With Smart Brake Technology’ just fits into a GIVI E460 Monokey case
    with some minor cuts and & plastic welding ( & after carefully taking the LED guts out of its housing )
    I didn’t want to put holes in the GIVI case and run wires thru the bike so I went wireless using "Blazer International Wireless Remote" and powered it with a portable Jump Starter : AG-XP-10-HD MICRO-START.
    The costs on this project were a bit on the high side , << .. not unlike Guzzi Accessories : P >>
    What a huge diff in visibility ( and now I have somewhere to tuck the helmets )

    Still getting the bike up updated to my preference - created a new seat ( stock seat was way to low and wide for my 6’4”) .. added foglights, custom passenger footrests and added add’l handlebar mirrors. Have a windshield but still waiting for the Windshield frame hardware .. guess the factory ran out .
