    2nd day ride update. I rode about 75 more miles today. If I ever meet the sadist that designed that seat, I'm going to poke him right in the eye! That thing is a torture device. I tried today wearing my Moto Skivvies which helped only slightly, so I have ordered a BeadRider beaded seat pad as my first attempt at pain reduction.

    The crooked handlebars are fixed. There was enough clearance in the bolt holes on the risers that I was able to loosen both sides and realign the bars straight.

    Today I finally got around to taking off the tank and handlebar stickers and the rear reflectors. It looks much cleaner already.

    Additionally, I purchased a beaded seat cushion, which will not work as there's not enough clearance between the seat pan and the fender for adjustment hardware on the beaded cushion.

    Thank you much, Todd! Definitely looking forward to joining in on the next small block ride - my initial 90+ miles on the Roamer have left me yearning for more. Amazing how sublime the ride is.

    Ready to Roam! Traded my 2012 Griso Black Devil for this 2017 V9 Roamer. I'll miss the power, but not the bulk. The V9 is light and flickable, the ergos are perfect for me, and it's a looker.

    With a flyscreen, tail rack and bag, and some Agostinis to uncork that sweet Mandello music, I'm looking forward to some backroads exploration and a little light touring.

    Due to trade in my '08 Aprilia shiver for a '17 Bobber on the 7th at Robinson's in Canterbury, UK. Took this one out for a test ride a couple of weeks ago and loved it. The only slight downside being that I would of preferred the 2016 version with the bench seat as in my mind it looks a lot cooler, but the bobber seat will have to do, sure is comfy at least.
    Have purchased some Mivv short cans to unleash that lovely V twin sound and a set of bar end mirrors so I can see past my elbows, roll on Monday :)

    Vin:ZGLUHU007HM000012. I am the HarrierGod. Denver, CO. purchased 7/24/17.
    I traded in my fz-07 for the guzzi. Completely different bike but I love it!
    I have plans to add some aftermarket parts but maybe not because I think the V9s look so good stock. I did however remove the reflectors as soon as I got it home.

    This morning I did the next set of updates on my V9 Bobber:
    1. The stock grips were too small for my big mitts, so I ordered a set of Biltwell Recoil Grips from Lowbrow Customs (I've known the guys who own Lowbrow for at least a dozen years). Oddly, they had the grips in stock and Biltwell didn't, plus Lowbrow's shipping charge was $8 less! These new grips are soft and bigger. They only had a small air vent hole in the outside end, so I had to open it up enough to clear the bar end weight screw. The grips were too soft to use a drill (drill just pushed through the hole but didn't remove any material) so I wound up using side cutters and nipped away a little piece at a time.
    2. I removed the stock mirrors and flopped the mirror mount holes to the underside. Then I added a pair of Rizoma Reverse Retro bar end mirrors ($91 ea.), which also required using Rizoma bar ends ($45 pr.), as the stock Guzzi ones are too big in diameter. I am real pleased with these mirrors (very high quality) and can now see behind me in my own lane! Point of reference, my dealer quoted me $600 for the pair of Guzzi accessory mirrors, so $227 (no tax, free shipping) vs. $600 (plus tax).
    3. Having previously removed the ugly reflector bouquet from the license plate area, I was left with one bracket hanging below the license plate. I ordered a stick-on chrome and enamel "Italia" emblem from eBay and put it on there, giving a nod to the bike's heritage.
    Hopefully, this weekend I'll get time to install the H-B C-Bow mounts & bags.

    I picked up some drag bars at a local shop and installed them today. I like them so far but I may need shorter cables. Everything works fine but I had to tuck the slack away and couldn't hide it completely. I need to pick out some new mirrors now too.

    I like the bars. I wonder if Bobber cables are any shorter (or if so, short enough to do you any good).
