I was wondering if that light bar had high and low beams. I suspect that this light does.
@RedHawk47 neither has high or low beam, just on or off, however a Skene dimmer makes it work fine on the street. Can program two brightness settings in increments of 10% along with high beam at 100% brightness to light the night. So I have 3 brightness settings (2 programmable on low beam plus full bright on high beam).
A couple of pics from our maiden voyage before I put her on a diet, probably one of the most beautiful bikes ever.
Yep I love mine too! Beautiful scenery you've got there, can't wait for the weather to improve so I can get out for a ride
A lull between storm fronts, out for a little ride before the big games today. One stop different views.
What's the weight down to now then?
Will weigh it tomorrow.
but the biggest net weight savings in order are listed here in approximate LBs:
Exhaust system (10) - Better deeper sound / performance
Lithium Battery (10) - More reliable / less maintenance
Alum. Rear Rack (9) - Less weight capacity , However can hold a full face helmet or various sundries in removable top case. (top case weight not counted in weight savings, However previous top case weighed 11 , current top case weighs 5)
Headlight assembly / Turn Signals / windscreen (7) - Improved air management / Squadron Pro = Much better night lighting
Center stand (6)
Net weight savings 44
crash bars for engine and handlebars / Roxrisers / TPMS (11)
In addition to the improved characteristics listed above the bike is easier to manage around the garage, easier to lift, feels much quicker and lighter handling. Still very stable at speed.
When I first got the bike I dropped it on the trail. Couldn't lift it up, had to drag it around and remove 2 cases, just barely able to lift.
Not saying its a lightweight now but visually and practically its feeling much more svelte.
Of course a simple question deserves a long winded response on a rainy winter's night ; )
Weighed in at 498 lbs holding roughly 3 gallons of gas as pictured with touring windscreen. I suspect the 505 published weight is wet but with no fuel. Yes that's snow on the mountain in sunny LA. It's downright cold today! ( by our standards of course ; )
Thanks, a good effort and well worth it no doubt.
this Italian beauty rode with us yesterday
Thanks Joel, but I'm Greek
Backroads around home in Australia.
Had my seat reshaped a bit, lower and rounder at the front.
Then went for a 400k ride out the back of Brisbane (Australia)
, and the results are good for me.
Pics from along the way.
Test road a CRF 450 L for the second time to be sure but I ended up with a second Italian mistress in the garage also in F#k me red and also quite beautiful to the eye. So I may slow down my posting on the v85 threads a bit but it won't slow down my enthusiasm for such a fun and outstanding bike. Now I have a bike for the long hauls and a desert / serious off-road bike. The CSC RX3 250 gave me 5 years of outstanding fun and introduction to the adv world. It was sold to someone who could enjoy it for what it is. Planning on giving this beta the ADV treatment. 5 gallon tank, cush rear sprocket, heated grips , squadron pro headlight and a windscreen. Nothing to drastic, just want to make it a capable adventure bike.
Its the 390 RR-S , I test road it a year ago and really liked it. the 450L is very similar (probably more reliable) but it didn't feel as good as the beta which had much better power delivery, felt lighter, smoother and had better feeling suspension.

It out red (road?) the Honda !
Colour matched fish.
First ever comparison of a motorcycle to a fish??
phone case matches fish = bonus points
