for your everyday bike?
This one looks to be taken in France, isn't it?
yup..... gonna buy myself an older concourse maybe...
I have 2015 ISH dakar dreams... saving pennies!
"The Chosen One"
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...
GF on her GS in her new outfit , ready for our trip to Dakar (Senegal).
A few more pix of a recent trip to the Drakensberg Mountains region of South Africa
Went to go and see where the snow line was today.
Somebody plowed up here...that's nice!!
Still gonna be a while for any high stuff as we got sooo much snow early in the year. C'mon warm temps!
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
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!
: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?
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.
Haha...Canadian bikes should though
I do have a set of the Giant Loop Bushwacker wind/rain deflectors (they're due out very soon but you may not need them ) over my handguards. You can see them in the top pic and from the side here:
I certainly will and thanks for offer Dorsland!
-not to worry though it won't be any time soon
from this weeks winter escape to Mallorca (Spain)
the single 8" is taking off!!
The latest addition to my bike collection.... Ready for the weather to break and get a weekend with ice free roads.
Killer! Got a write up on it? I love it this way.
After I finish machining my wp conversion stem there will be a write up.
