    I like those, so much of the cool Givi stuff doesn't seem to be available in the US and must be purchased from overseas.

    At last, after placing the order with Fowlers of Bristol in September 2019, our V85TT is now equipped with the Aprilia Caponord front mudguard 2B001431 plus Pyramid Plastics Fenda-Extenda SKU: 057173.

    What a coincidence, I just had a call from my local (1300k away) friendly Guzzi and Aprilia dealer to tell me the genuine Caponord fender extender I ordered umpteen months ago has just arrived. And the clown had the nerve to ask if I still wanted it lolol. Once it arrives I will fit and post a pic or two.

    Oh, they really are coming thick and fast! I placed an order with MSP in Holland first week in January and mine arrived last week. I didn't get the Pyramid Extender yet as I thought it prudent to wait until the mudguard arrived first. I managed to find a small rubber blanking plug to fill the hole, which I believe is essential.

    Chris, Do you have a front view picture of the panniers. They are the ones that I am thinking of buying. The Guzzi panniers on the travel V85 I test rode had a locking mechanism that stuck out and annoyed my wife. I hope the HB ones allow a bit more space.

    I've gone through all the pictures of our V85TT and cropped these. Hopefully they'll give you some idea of what the front of the HB panniers look like.

    Has anyone here fitted Barkbuster handguards with the BHG-079 two point frame to their V85.? If so, do you have any photos of how the inside clamp on the right side fits together? The fellows at Barkbuster (Barkbusterians? Barlbusteri?) claim this frame will fit the handlebar on a V85, but I can't for the life of me see how it could not get tangled up with the throttle cable cluster.

    pretty pic of a clean bike.
    now show me a pic of 100 miles of rain ridding because I doubt that little thing so far forward will do much.

    As far as the fog light are concerned I am looking for the two (2) brackets on each side to bolt my light to. Any idea of where I can find them and for how much? Thanks...... Jim

    Fog lamps and brackets only available together as shown below. I can put them online for purchase if you want them. $370/pair as a kit.

    Thanks for the heads up Chris, my matt black rear hugger is now on order. Hopefully this should stop the rear shock getting so grubby. Last winter's commute is starting to take its toll on the top.

    You're welcome. I've also ordered a matt black version.

    Gutsibits website is listing them too,as well as the PDF of the fitting instructions. Doesn't look like it's going to be the 5 minute job that the B1100 was: the back wheel has to come off!

    Has anyone sourced a shorter screen? Yes, shorter :) I have just tried a Givi airflow but found it terrible. And it confirmed that I definitely don't like looking through a screen. Even using just the bottom part it creates too much turbulence. So back to the original, which is currently the lesser of 3 evils :D

    You also mount the caponord Rally model on the V85TT

    Be careful when you place an order for it : the correct model is Caponord Rally, not the ADD Caponord , due to the different size of the front wheel .
