I've had mine about two weeks but have not ridden at night with it. Good to know that it should be removed if riding dark roads.
If it does reduce visibility that much at night I might return mine before I use it. Though it would not make that big difference so you need to remove it during dark hours, I tend to ride a bit in the night time from work.
Like I said, the light intensity doesn't change. What happens is that the light reflection off the windshield reduces your night vision.
I ride with mine all the time commuting home at night and the cover does not present a problem around town. I would remove it on unlit mountain roads if I wanted to ride fast to maximize my vision.
I'd try the mesh if I thought I could pull it off as well as you do.
You have TONS left in that K60.... Go ride
I gotta remember to give you a call tomorrow... Need to talk about exhaust.
Plan too...just trying to get a handle on life expectancy so I know what I have left. I can already say that this will probably be the only tire I run on the bike. Seems to do well in all conditions.
How is the street grip when they are getting near the end of service? must get a bit sketchy on the wet pavement
mine looks like that and already has over 9000 miles in it
I switched from the Corbin to the Russell Day Long simply because my ass still hurt on the Corbin. It was better than stock but just barely.
Yep, Russell does make seats for the S10.
I've had three Corbin seats and always considered them the Emperors Clothes of seats.
Have to act like you like it for the cost, yet I hated everyone of them. KTM and Corbin
must have the same foam supplier. Not bought another aftermarket seat since
Airhawk came into my butts life. (There's a set up line:huh)
Corbin seats look good, but the ones I've sat on were harder than a brick. The Mustang & Sargent seats I've bought were good right out of the box.
I tried a few different seats on the Wee, including the Airhawk, but none felt comfortable till the Russell showed up. The S10 came with the Corbin and stock but neither of them were that comfortable, IMHO.
The Russell is ugly but I didn't buy the Wee or the S10 for the looks.
More info on the new GS... (more vicarious break down)
2013 BMW R1200GS Deliveries Delayed to Fix Suspension Issue
plus 2 Transport Canada recalls.
On a sad note, I wonder if that suspension glitch was what caused Kevin Ash's crash.
Well that's old news. The beta testers have moved onto to switch failures now.
The new KTM 1190R has been occupying my thoughts.
And then, as if by some divine intervention, I found this...
...and am suddenly reminded what it means to own an Orange bike.
The good news is there is still plenty of room on the flatbed tow truck
to display your new bikes around town.
You know, silver lining and all.
They will be moving to a subscription only service soon. No more worrying about bulk payment up front.
Just "activate" your bike once a month at the local dealer for a monthly fee of $800...Software updates included in the price..
Activation module and Wifi kit sold separately.
Ky Gel will be provided free.
This is so KTM, they build a great bike but just miss a few so very important details such as it has to start and run every time you want to go for a ride.
