On the very, very short list for next year. Looking forward to some test rides this spring/summer.

Very nice, congratulations on the new ride!  Thumbsup

I had the nek'd version, a '15 R1200R for 6 weeks and 2112 miles of smiles. It keeps company with my '15 GSA with 15+K miles  of smiles.

Did you get the Nav 5? It goes a long way to compensate for the short coming of the  instrument cluster. In addition to navigation functions it can display much of the data from the cluster, and sometime more detail info. It can be configured to display 1, 2, 4, or 16 tiles, each with different data selected by the rider. I prefer the  4 tile mode showing: speed, F/TP, R/TP, and fuel range.

A few days ago the cluster shows a light warning indicating it was at the rear of the bike. The Nav unit specified it was the license plate light!

The Nav 5 unit is pricey but brings a lot of additional function with it.

I have the BMW GPS. I'm not sure if it's called Nav 5.

I will play around with the different screens.

Congrats!  

And yes, I use my BMW Nav IV as my speedo.  You can customize your screen and have the speedo in the lower left or right of the screen when you're in map view mode.

I do this too, but it causes me problems when I'm in one of the numerous, long tunnels here, as the GPS is no longer updating my speed. 100kph? Sure! That's what it says right here on the GPS! Never mind that the speedometer has crept up to 120...  Embarassment

If it's the GPS that was sold to you by the dealer for that beautiful RS it is the Nav 5 unit.

I'd love to be there but, I can't promise anything  Smile That would be a great, first long ride.

Yup, it's the GPS the dealer put on.

I did my first semi-long day today. About 210 miles. Butt started to complain a bit the last 20 or so miles but, nothing painful. Kept the windshield in the low position and it was fine, no buffeting.

I was gonna switch the suspension to "dynamic" mode for the tight twisties but, forgot all about it  Bigsmile Normal suspension mode works fine for most street riding I guess  Smile

I would love an updated Le Mans but, Guzzi isn't offering anything like the RS at the moment  Sad

Also BMW has a local dealer so, it's a bit more convenient.

My Guzzi in Italy is still running strong  Smile

Edit to add: the boxer sounds like an extended fart  Sad

I fixed that on my '15 R1200R with the Remus CF slip on. It now has a nice baritone growl, even with the baffle in.  Lol
That CF Remus would look great on your RS!  Wink
The GSA with the stock can has a nicer voice then the stock system on the R/RS .... go figure.  Rolleyes

A good seat takes a while to break in.
Now you have to go back to those twisties and do 'em 'right'.
