Its one of three mountains ranges (i know of) in colorado that are bright orange. That particular mountain the background is 12,800 feet high and is known as Red Cone.

to give you an idea of scale, if a bike was up on top it'd be about 1 pixel in size (you can ride over Red Cone and sit at the top).

Both great bikes. The riding experience is amazingly different given the mechanical similarities.

I lurve my SE.
Good summary.

Aside from oil change, Im not finding the SE that much easier to work on. Removing the tank is a pita - and everything is under it (fuel pump, airbox/carbs) ... just practice, I guess...

One thing that makes it MUCH easier to work on is installing our vacuum fuel pump kit or making your own in the same fashion. We use two quick couplings and do away with all the plumbing between the halves Two clicks and then removing the horn/fuel level and you're done. We also hated removing the tanks on ours, but no more..

Here is a pic of our fairing.
The large snout will of course feature a PC glass bolted to the fairing to protect the lights. Now there is some work to be done before we can present the finished product! It will sit flush againt the top and front of the SE tank.
Any news about the SE fairing David?

After the HUMM...

Rode London to Spain, spent 2 1/2 days ripping up the trails, then rode home again.

Damn I love that bike!

At today’s rates (6995.00 SEK = 939.31 USD) that seems like a GREAT deal!

How soon will they be ready to ship?

We have just sent out e-mails to our early-bird "interestees" that we are ready to start production of the kits. The first kits will be delivered within a couple of weeks. Please send us an e-mail if you are interested!

Thank you for your kind words!

Rearding lighting; none of the above, we supply the lights also, one halogen and one xenon. The kit is totally bolt-on and the installation is easily reversed should you want it stock again. We also supply all the electrical extensions needed using stock connectors and also an H4 connector which should make it almost fool-proof. Everything is included in the price.

www.raiddesigns.com for info and contact details.
