I've had mine about two weeks but have not ridden at night with it. Good to know that it should be removed if riding dark roads.

If it does reduce visibility that much at night I might return mine before I use it. Though it would not make that big difference so you need to remove it during dark hours, I tend to ride a bit in the night time from work.
Cheers.

Like I said, the light intensity doesn't change. What happens is that the light reflection off the windshield reduces your night vision.

I ride with mine all the time commuting home at night and the cover does not present a problem around town. I would remove it on unlit mountain roads if I wanted to ride fast to maximize my vision.

Plan too...just trying to get a handle on life expectancy so I know what I have left. I can already say that this will probably be the only tire I run on the bike. Seems to do well in all conditions.

How is the street grip when they are getting near the end of service? must get a bit sketchy on the wet pavement

I switched from the Corbin to the Russell Day Long simply because my ass still hurt on the Corbin. It was better than stock but just barely.

Yep, Russell does make seats for the S10.

I've had three Corbin seats and always considered them the Emperors Clothes of seats.

Have to act like you like it for the cost, yet I hated everyone of them. KTM and Corbin
must have the same foam supplier. Not bought another aftermarket seat since
Airhawk came into my butts life. (There's a set up line)

Corbin seats look good, but the ones I've sat on were harder than a brick. The Mustang & Sargent seats I've bought were good right out of the box.
