Nice, now you just need to install one of these,
Pics of my 2015, after two years of ownership, runs like a dream and still looks good
P.S. Blue is the best colour
That looks great. I loved my blue GSA.
My favorite color scheme for the LCs. Nice bike!
where did you buy rear side box?
I got it from Adventure Designs, then painted it.
It's a picture thread so I better post a pic
I love this picture!
Man, yours is in nicer condition than mine and I only have 1200 miles on mine
Just gave it a full detail (ct18 truck wash removes all sins), which is why I took a photo. If you look closer you can see where the gravel has sandblasted the centre stand, as well as the scrapes on the lower crash bars where it got tired and had a little lie down.
I like the tow of caps LOL.
took ownership of her last week and started to add some farkles on her
this is how she looks like currently
Not so new anymore with almost 60,000km on the clock.
Still amazes me how versatile this bike is.
Took our first trip yesterday. My first ever boxer, a 2014 LC with complete service history and extended warranty until 2018... Excellent balance, pulls like an animal, even in Rain mode. Brakes - only a concrete wall can stop you quicker.
On the other hand, when it comes to being "refined", it is nowhere even near my old F650GS twin. Gear shifting sounds like a hammer on an anvil, the engine shakes and rattles, the Rev needle dances around, you simply can't keep a steady cruise with a fixed throttle. This may be yet another "they all do that" situation anyway. I think I'll try the NGK spark plugs discussed here, although I don't believe they can do that much difference. Any other suggestions?
No they dont all do that (the steady cruise), but they sure do make a racket.
Coming from a Tiger 800xc, it was a big shock to me the difference in smoothness between both (to the point that I thought there was something wrong with the gearbox). I can agree to everything you are saying.
One thing that might help with up shifting, put your foot under the lever and apply a bit of pressure before pulling the clutch. Once you pull the clutch, you'll notice that it will feel a lot better. I still have to refine the down shifting. Sometimes I can get it perfectly and sometimes it does feel like a hammer.
I am going to do some research on the plugs......
