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.
Aluminium panniers are from their ‘Xplorer’ range with a 30-litre unit on the left and 40-litre on the right. The pannier frame is easy to fit and matches perfectly with the standard mounting mounts on the motorcycle. Their inner bags are top quality and will make overnight stops a breeze.
Hopefully the pictures do the equipment justice.

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...... JimI personally cannot do full aluminum panniers but I understand how much more useful they are. But those H&B ones look awesome!
I don't need a top case so I'm just waiting on someone to manufacture a passenger backrest, and if they can integrate it as a top case bracket as well, heck why not?
Todd, I recall Moto Guzzi offering the entire pannier set with the purchase of the ADV V85TT as a kind of promotion and to attract customers.
Did yours come with them or was it all a hoax and you need to pay extra for the set?
Also, I remember seeing a device (can't remember the name at the moment) that allows the fog lights to blink / stutter whenever you use the horn or high beam or something like that.
Does anyone know the name of that device?
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.As far as the fog light are concerned I am looking for the two (2) brackets on each side to bolt my light to.

You also mount the caponord Rally model on the V85TTHas 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.
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 .
