Givi have finally made the pannier carrier quick release,well relatively,so you can now lose the ugly carrier,and to be honest I don't like the look of the new cases,part of the reason I'm doing it this way.
The RP1's look like they should clear ok,but when I ordered the end can from scorpion last time they had no info on whether it would be ok on the hornet with givi luggage on,but did say if wouldn't fit they would refund my money as long as the cans hadn't been run,fortunately they worked great.
Hoping that will be the case when i speak to them at the NEC thus time.
I guess you get used to having things a certain way,must be old age getting a grip lol

I pick up a green one, 2017 this coming Saturday, couldn't wait for the black!
Still not sure about the posts re tyres, sold my Blackbird after 15 yrs  which had Michelin Road Pilots so good.
Prior to that the VFR had poor BT54's so have concern stick tyres may not be so hot. A lot of the reviews of 2017's always ended with concern about front end? Guess I'll find out😀

Sweet mate,have to post a pic.
Yeah been reading about the tyres,had a test ride a couple of weeks ago in the wet,didn't really notice a problem,but was pottering more than flat out so may not have been apparent ,I've always ridden bridgestones and always had full confidence,be interested in how you find them
