    Press and hold. I had to read the manual right after it got me enough. Congrats on an excellent purchase! I havn't made it to break in service (900 miles) yet. I thought I could sell my primary bike and skirt though deer season with out a bike. I saw the V85TT the next day and was signing papers. Just about every upgrade I wanted over my previous triumph 800 xc.

    ADV RED VIN#ZGUKWA002KM002208 - Michael M. @ Allgäu, Bavaria - Germany

    I received it september 2nd, but due to private reasons up to winter I only run 750 km. Now I'll add up heated grip from MG during this shitty cold by myself. Visited Moto Guzzi museum @ Mandello del Lario in August as it is only 5 h drive from home.

    I have the lowered seat and there is not much different than the stock seat, maybe 1/4" to 1/2" lower. You might consider the Bitubo lowering shock, it's supposed to drop seat height down by 1.25"

    I also bought lower saddle, it is 20mm lower (0,787") than standard. For me who is only 172cm it made little difference. Now I get my whole foot down in the ground.

    just do it yourself. you can buy a foam pad at wally world for $4 in the sporting goods if you need it. a little time with a electric knife if available works wonders. If not a long serrated one.

    I sold my 1200 Sport last Saturday and then flew to Austin to pick up my grey V85TT Tuesday. AF1 has a good deal going on the V85, as long as you want a grey one.
    I hit 900 miles just as I was getting home, so oil and filter changed yesterday and going to work on the rest of the first service today.
