Weight and speed and all the other stuff is essentially

I have always changed my pipes 'cause I thought they sounded better. Sort of an aural salve for my soul. (Not too loud....)

Now, that being said, I ALWAYS justified it with the aforementioned weight savings and (theoretical) HP increase....

Lets face it, we're all essentially little kids when it comes to bikes...

Sounds cool? I'm IN!!!

Wasn't someone talking about the battery weighing 40lbs or something 4,000 posts earlier and how we could buy a lighter battery? If we shed the pipe, the battery, the massive forks, the seat, the swing arm, the dual front discs, make the tank smaller, drop panniers, top box, pillion, heck, drop the rider, I bet we can drop 250lbs! Oh wait, we then have no awesome bike

BTW, the S10 is plenty loud with the stock pipe, the bike roars. Sitting at idle next to another bike we cannot hear each other talk, that is plenty loud.

The finish quality looks utterly superb. I ran the ten down because of it's price once, but it looks like it might well be worth every penny..

So how did my Raven bike end up in the UK? Can you please help it find its rightful home--anytime in the next week or two will be acceptable .

Thanks in advance.

Hopefully this is a good sign, it's exactly the same as the US model with the all black seat

Let's hope there's a ship somewhere out there loaded with these on the way to the US

Change is as good as a rest and all that. Looks like i've got the weather for running in this weekend. I don't really like using any bike at the weekend - one of the plus points of working mad shifts - but i can't wait for tomorrow morning.
I'm hoping to get out and do a bit of exploring over the next few weeks.

So - I will have to add an alternative device myself to blow-up a camping airbed....bit disappointed to be honest - as I would have thought this was basic stuff for an adventure bike...

That black looks mighty fine. Fender extender from the off is a good move, too.

Siddhartha, just checked the book and it says the socket is rated 30w/ 3A fuse - too low for heated gear as well, I fear. It seems to be wired off the lighting circuit though a better man than me needs to cast an eye over the wiring diagram to be sure. The back of the socket is easily accessible, and it's a short, simple route to the battery, so a direct rewire with in-line fuse to suit would seem eminently do-able.
