Ta for that. Will have a think, there must be a way to do it. Mine usually runs off the 12v socket

Apparently the glovebox (where the power socket is located) is watertight & getting a cable out will break the integrety of the seal

I had an NC and it had watertight storage, the cable coming out of the top of the storage didn’t cause a problem waterwise, not a drop got in.

There are redundant mirror holes to use? Hmm.. that sound like a good plan....

Don't like those unless no other option, but that's just me.

They're obviously not central and always been nervous about potential stress of additional weight on the master cylinder. Though I've not heard any scare stories.

P.S. Welcome to Muppets.

A mate of mine has just bought a new Xmax and is not happy at all with the headlights. He is jealous of my Burgman 650 which has brilliant headlamps (pun intended) and frankly trumps the Xmax on all fronts.

I cannot comment on the Forza, but I am more than happy at the moment with the Burgman. It accelerates to overtake anything on the Motorway effortlessly - and I am 20 stone.

The one down side between our two bikes - his XMAX125 gets 98mpg - and I am getting 59mpg on my 650

As for the SatNav - I use the Oxford Flexible option between the handlebars - it works fine - and is totally waterproof.

Digging out my fur lined apron from my Vespa days (attaches round me not the bike before anyone worries about compatibility)

One question for Forza owners... where / how do you mount your Sat Navs?
Hmmm... fur lined apron... I reckon I'd look quite fetching in one of those. Fishnets for armour
