New Top Box will be Kappa KGR 46. This box has nice design even it is kind of “normal box”. With this box I had some troubles with delivery… I made the order from ebay from Italian company. But when they told it is on the way the tracking was never working!
And finally the box arrived after more than 5 weeks of waiting!
This goes straight to the monokey platform that I already presented in part 1.
I hope there will be enough space for all my stuff!
I got these small boxes awhile ago. I made the order from Estonian motoshop Motokaup. The finnish reseller of SW Motech also has internetshop but this sucks! (R.M. Heino you can do better!!!)
I never had sidestand extend before, but now I got one. I hope it will help to keep my bike up!
This is the ring that you must have if you want to use Bags Connection tank bags. I have one. I also had the ring in my previous bike but it wasn’t the original -it was a little bit modified by me. Bags Connection bags are made by SW Motech.
In my previous bike I had the BMW original bags but they are quite small (35 litres I think?) so now I was thinking to get bigger ones. These are the bags I got:
Since I don’t have the bike yet I didn’t unpack all from the boxes but I took 1 picture in my carage:
These are 45 litres each. I was very surprised how light they are!! Almost lighter than the plastic BMW-boxes. It will also take some time to be comfortable how these look… The BMW-boxes have some design and shape… These are just boxes!
Then I will also have a new topbox. That I will show you when I have it.
Here is another video about SW Motech Trax adventure boxes installation (This one is in German):
Second package arrived today… all the way from China. I didn’t have too much expectations for this one but it seems that I will install this… I really wanna see how it looks on the bike!
These are the protection Grills for radiator and oil cooler -and these are very cheap ones! The normal price for these is about 140€ and mostly you will find these in black colour only. But this one is something else…
As you can see it’s blue! And I love it. I only wish the installation is easy and it fits there nicely.
My old bike is for sale as you’ve seen from the previous posts. I also ordered the new bike already… I will have it maybe in february 2018.
I’ve been buying some stuff to this new bike already! The first package I got from Italy 2 days ago.
It’s the same aluminium plate for the top box that I had in my previous bike, Givi SRA5119 is the name of the part!
I will add more “bling-bling” here always when I recieve the new package!
We’re in the paradise island. What should we do? Go to the beach? Go to have some summer activities? Jet Ski maybe? No… Lets go ride a motorcycle!
I made a route almost 300km’s long and we started riding that. First south from Galeria: These parts are so nice ride with magnificant views to the sea almost all the time. And finally the Col de Palmarella with sensational views to the both sides of the island! Southside from Golfe de Porto we found the the rock-formations of Les Calanques de Piana. But as excepted this area is quite full of people!
We only stopped for awhile to take some pictures and we continued more south towards Col de Vergio. This is the highest mountain pass in Corsica island (With altitude of 1477m).
It was very funny to ride these areas of Corsica! The road was sweeping nicely through Pinetree-forest and the forest was full of pigs! For some reason you don’t see the pigs in my video because they stay at the shadows but here is one pic…
The eastside of Vergio is actually a very beautiful (and dangerous) Canyonroad with very narrow places and tight/ steep corners!
In Ponte Leccia we tried to find a place to eat…. But not a very good success! We found only Panini and waitress dropped one of them to my lapp and then she pushed her fingers to Maria’s (or Salla’s) Cola! Not a very good day for her I guess? Here’s the route for day 7:
