Hi all.

First, a quick update on my new 2007 Nevada Classic: I LOVE IT!

One obvious missing element: there is not strap on the seat to secure your glasses or gloves when warming up. 
I did a Google and Amazon (and Dennis Kirk) search-- best I could find are crappy nylon straps.
Would I need to go to an upholstery guy?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Thanks.

The seat strap on my V7 Classic was purely decorative; just stitched on with the added advantage of letting water in and then squirting it out when you sat down. I had the seat recovered with a non porous material.
V7 Classic Black and gold was the best. But green & black was nice too. Now blue is in!

It's a Guzzi, form over function every time. LOL

Better 5 minutes late in this world than years early in the next.

Oh, snap! Yes, it is better to look good than to feel good.

Thanks, everyone. I got over the strap.
