    A dirty Stelvio is a happy Stelvio. This year on a 3 day ride in Vermont.

    The weekend had everything from fast gravel to muddy single track. Every time I take the big girl off road, it impresses me how well it handles and how relatively easy it is to ride.

    I did take a little digger in a mud hole at relatively slow speed and it of course broke the hand guard. It'll be getting bark busters this winter.

    Just purchased it in Sacramento Thanksgiving week. Sunny day, but rode home two days in the rain to Eureka, CA. Well balanced and what a beauty:h:.

    Just picked mine up yesterday. 2011 4v in white.
    Brand new, forgotten stock. Now under a cover waiting for the Calgary weather to improve in 2 months or 4, depending on what the Rocky mountains say!
    This replaces the 2012 I had to sell before leaving the UK last year......

    Haven't done it on my Stelvio yet. The last time was 10-11 years ago with my wife on a Beemer 1100RS (with not quite enough spring travel :whew:), and we went the other way, leaving from Ferndale.

    Hi All:

    From a lurker/researcher for a month, to a purchaser and owner for the past two months allow me to introduce my girl:

    20150505_124744.JPG

    ....yeah, I know, she is a fat pig, but she is my fat pig and pretty with it!

    A'12 {M111738...one of the first of the NTX in the US I think} as you know from the color, OTR as of 8/13, mine as of 4/15 with only 3,812 miles when she arrived; +6K now. Stock at time of purchase but now has PIAA lights, Euro turn signals, SW Motech pegs (not on this pic), Stucci big foot (oil cooler cover on order), Kreiga fork seal covers, Fenda Extenda to be fitted. Stock CARC breather removed and tube fitted up to the airbox area and a canisterctomy (no anesthesia...but I needed a beer).

    Joins the '05 R12GS that is getting a little long in the tooth..but has been and remains a stellar performer.

    Shout out and a BIG, BIG thank you to all the good folks on the site who have posted on the issues and fixes that helped with the decision to purchase and the TLC given since arrival. Recalls had been performed. The Hella on the RHS had burned (the PO was carrying 6 ..yes SIX 30amp fuses) - remedied with the PIAA's and individual fuses wired into the original connectors. Leaking fork seals...de-crisco'd with a Seal Doctor...just dandy now. CARC weeping around about 50% of the seam of the clam shell casing....which is much improved, in fact almost eliminated, with a change to Redline Shockproof Heavy (from Mobil 1 75W90)...did not want to pull it without giving this a shot first. Guzzidiag + Lonelec cable for TB Synch and TPS reset... after doing the usual 6K service items. She is singing now.. loving +4K, but still has the well documented flat notes.

    Heidi K60's on hand .... Let's Go Places....

    Cheers

    John

    Put the Stelvio through endurance test on and off road California's Lost Coast. Handled well. Good thing I removed the cases! Thanks for the top case Todd.

    Nice vid! Makes me want to do that again this summer - it's been 13 years, and I know the Stelvio will be a better bike for those roads.
