Air Conditioned my new TV Lusso!

Hey Guys, got my new MV TV Lusso yesterday from Houston Superbikes, the one I've been waiting and waiting on, finally the day has arrived!
So, my first project was to make riding it bearable in the Houston summer which has already arrived somehow. I had made a plan to use a portable cool shirt system which is from one of my race cars. The photos show the process. I drilled two holes in the left panniere and ran two hose connections through it, they stay mounted permanently. One end of the hoses connect to the ice water filled CoolShirt bag when it's filled and locked up inside the panniere. When I'm seated on the bike with my CoolShirt on under my jacket I just connect the hoses and the ice water is on me instantly. I rode about three hours out in the country today in 90F heat and it was wonderful, the bike I mean, the air conditioning was pretty cool, too!

Interesting idea. Not that it's applicable here though.

Glad that you're liking the Turismo.

I suppose the opposite would work, fill it with hot water for those cold June afternoons in "Ol' Blighty"

True though an electrically heated vest is a simpler option that leaves the panniers vacant for other purposes and free of holes.

I have perforated leathers and boots for the odd occasion that we get a decent amount of sun or when touring in the hotter parts of Europe (no doubt nothing like Texas temperature-wise).

Same as Chas : electric equipment seems much more suitable for this especially considering the two DIN outlet available exactly at perfect position for both pilot and passenger.

One thing I would eventually consider is to equip the luggage with a powered DIN outlet to be able to charge something while riding... Although, it should be fairly easier and less destructive to do this within a tankbag

I agree. I have a small Givi tank bag that has a cable entry point (you can buy a specific power kit for the bag). I pass a USB though this to charge my phone, which is in there whilst I ride anyway, if I need to. This cable obviously plugs into one of the USB ports below the dash.

Agree (Givi tankbag as well with a cable for this purpose)

However, there is one use case where powered luggage could be helpful : to charge our helmet Bluetooth headsets (it would require a timed battery output of 3 hours on 5V/2A). I found out that my powerbank which works perfectly to charge a phone doesn't work to charge my Sena 10U (I'm still skeptical as of why), and maybe a possibility to have a USB charger working in the luggage (when bike is not running and with a timed switch) would help in this.

Possibly you have the wrong powerbank



Spoke too soon, stops charging after about 20 minutes. Possibly draw is too little so the powerbank shuts down? Remove and plug back in and it starts again but soon stops...

Exactly the same here , and exactly the same thinking :-D. My problem is that generally, when it's time to charge the Sena on the week-ends I ride with friends, there is a conjunction of events that doesn't help:
- lack of wall socket (thanks the USB ports on the MV solves a lot of this problem while riding - The Sena is still a problem)
- generally during dinner or night, my attention is somewhere else and I won't check the charge is happening. That's a way having the Sena very lightly charged in the morning.

In short, need to find a proper solution for this.
