    I bought the kit on Ebay. It's 35 W and 6000K. For me it was 57 euros, shipping included.
    I believe this guy from the US sells the same kit: Ebay.

    My Trophy was serviced last week and I was given a brand spanking new F700GS as a courtesy bike... quite enjoyed it, not much different in performance in the city and a bit more flickable through traffic. Being lower it of course felt closer to the ground compared to the 800 which was a bit of an odd sensation at first, making the bike feel quite a bit lighter despite only a few kg difference in weight. The ESA does actually make a noticeable difference on London's bombed out roads too—wish it had been available on the 2012 models.

    I've written a 'first impressions' review here...

    Bit of a temperature contrast between your pix and mine Toowheels: I had 34 degrees C temps (93F) most days. I'm guessing yours were a bit lower :D

    Haha yes Dorsland! Maybe not quite as cold (about 4* C) as it looks but I'd still much rather be over your way!

    Looks like some fine riding and camping! :thumb

    Enjoy!

    :huh I guess it's an acquired preference but I don't like riding much once it gets below about 12*C here in winter (and that doesn't happen often fortunately!). Do your heated grips have a third and fourth setting? :D

    That photo of mine taken with the sandstone cliffs in the background gets snow in winter but even then I don't think temps get down to those you guys ride in.

    If you ever get down this way, give me a shout, be good to do a trip or two with you.
