That was beautiful. I may have teared up just a little , remembering my own transgressions.

In reality, you did the right thing. The black ones are better in every way.

Bullshďt, everyone knows the white 2011's make the most power, have the best brakes, and are equipped with the best suspension! No doubt in my mind about those facts!

He's right you know. Black is black because it absorbs more of the light spectrum. Therefore a black bike has more energy within and will go faster.

What is this?

I noticed this aperture in the bezel on the speedometer of my new '12 800XC


There isn't one on my old '11


Also, here is my former girl. Naked and lovely!

My 13 XC has that space there as well. I thought it broke until I checked a new bike at the dealer. Wonder why they changed that.

Lowering links

I put a set of these on tonight for my wife, now she is able to sit flat footed on her roadie. Pretty easy and solved the problem. Might need to replace side stand with an adjustable one.

My 2012 has the space in the dash cluster too
I figured it was to drain any water that might get trapped up there ?

you can space the sidestand out some with a washer or two under one of the sidestand bolts. That leaned mine over enough.
