Bah, the FF50s are great for lighting up the road up but if you really want to be seen then what you need is a pair of these:



When I come over to see your bike I'll bring one of my bikes with these (they all have them) and you'll see them from a mile away - literally. I first saw these on a riding buddy's bike and they ain't pretty but MAN do they work. Once you see them in person you'll be a convert.

I can't image how bright they are in person. I'll look forward to it.

Although they're 70W they aren't extremely bright. I can run them at night without blinding other road users. However, their orangeness does stand out and makes a bike extremely conspicuous, even in the peripheral vision of drivers.

(And they do pretty well as fog lights too.)

It's crazy how many fairings Pichler made for those bikes. I must say that the one I had for a summer worked very well though. It was quite good in thunderstorm rain but was great in the sun as well. I probably should've kept that one.

What I find interesting and exciting is the range of this bike........ cafe bike or tourer. I'm sure there are other bikes that could make a similar claim but IMHO not as well rounded as the K75. That particular fairing is very consistant with the lines of the K75. Looks OEM to me. It seems ideal if you could have a K with a Pichler for touring and another K naked for urban activity and commuting. Life would be perfect. However, I can't see selling my Versys to make that happen. The V is too much fun and will become the tourer of the two. I may change my mind after owning the K75 for a while.

K75C

Really no idea. But rattle or not, the Stealth paint theme looks sweet.
