Not speakers, but they will sound better and block your ears from wind noise. I use 'em, I'm a happy customer.

And I saw pictures somewhere of your 48, that's a good looking bike!



Thank you,

My wife and I realized that most of our pictures that we hold value to are of family, and mostly indoors, so the next camera we are making sure has excellent low light performance. There are so many options today that it just makes plain sense to do the research on the cameras, and on your shooting style, to make sure you get the right one.
The best thing you can do to improve your camera's low light performance is to buy a nice hot shoe flash and learn to use it well. Learn to balance the flash to the lighting and learn to bounce it when possible. I get that many people prefer natural lighting to flash photos, so do I. However, flash used properly can be pleasing and not overwhelming. You will end up with better pictures. There is a night and day difference between what you can do with a nice hot shoe flash versus the pop up flash on your camera.

After looking at those pictures a minute I don't hate the overly tall risers as much as I initially did. not what I would do, but looks good. Makes me want to take mine off the market and save a few years to get the next bike... no, there is no chance I will have an extra 3k in a long time.


....nice scoot

Thanks.
This bike used to have clip-ons, and if you look closely you can still see the brackets on the upper fork tubes. My back is f-ed and the clip-ons are now a no-go.
Now i just go.

BTW, your bike rules. If it was anywhere near me i'd own it for sure for that price!

Doesn't need one. It's powered by the blatantly obvious internet comments.

I had my 2k1 converted to chain. Never noticed any extra vibration. The chain was 530 Regina with the gold sideplates and after 20,000 miles it didn't look worn at all. I could then go play in the sand and dirt without worrying about ruining a pulley. The AZ sand destroyed the chrome plating on my rear pulley. It was coming off in chunks and the plating was sharp and thick enough to cut a finger on.

I really miss that bike.

Thanks! I do have a hot shoe flash for the old Rebel. Speedlight 5xx. I have got some good results with it, but I am not a pro by any means. It is interesting seeing the difference in picture when the only difference is where the flash is turned.

I think i would prefer speakers so i can hear my surrounding also. and maybe be a little bit more comfortable even if it doesn't sound as good.
