    center of gravity

    does anyone know where I can find the CG specifications for a R1150RT? I'm interested in the location of the longitudinal CG (along the length of the bike, not the vertical CG)

    I'm still confused. I don't see any lights to the sides of my headlight, just the reflector. Do you have lamps on either side of your headlight?
