Thanks for the tyre tip.
Pirelli Scorpion Rally tires are sized 90/90 - 21 M/C 54R, 120/100 - 18 M/C 68R
and 140/80 - 18 M/C 70R. On mine the original 130/80 Michelin T-63 is on and I've got a good offer on used tires and parts from Pal Anders Ullevalseter and will stick with that until further. He's an extremely pleasant guy to deal with, BTW.

Mine has a CF tool box only on the left side of the bash plate. Pal Anders warned me that the bolts on this toolbox should be checked often since they tend to work loose and the box would melt against the exhaust pipe.

Same here. It's my first and best bike of its kind and I'm damn lucky to own it. Needless to say it's not for sale any more no matter the price offered.
This one's a keeper. I've done 3000km on it now in 3 weeks :) Giantloop Coyote saddlebags are now in customs and will be used in a couple of days. Thanks, Wachs & co.!
