Thank you Don!
here's a photo:
The front, the underside, the center strip and the whole rear are CF, as are the wheels. The bike dry is under 400 lbs.
I'll keep my mostly CF bodied and wheeled R1200S instead:
Thank you! It rides sweet, being lighter.
I have read articles telling me teenagers these days do not get driver licenses. How will they ride m/c's?
Here is my largely Carbon Fiber bodied R1200S after matte coating:
The directional lenses have been replaced by white ones since this photo was taken (bulbs silver-coated orange included)...
Revs better with synth. Maybe the bike broke in, finally, 15,000 miles.
I'll keep my R1200S with CF wheels, and mostly CF body, plus a 2.8 lb battery.
I switched to synthetic on my R1200S because of our temps. Bike runs to redline fine, whether 110 or 79 (like we are now after 82).
The rims are old. I have them since August 2009. They do not look aged.
In fact, the rims being as good as they are convinced me to the body.
GPS is ZTechnik's control mount. White panels are stock, repainted because no CF panels were available when I got the CF.
They are now, but over $500 each. I'm may do them, but I like the...
All parts are matte clear coated.
New front lenses are coming (white)
New Carbon FX seat on order.
Summer is not over here. 94F today and dry. Tomorrow 89F and I'll ride to work and then play.
The 2013 GS is 18K +. Bags add $1.1K but are nice.
Top bag might be $500, I don't have a clue about engine guards.
I have a new CF body to go with new tires for the riding season. Next week the CF gets film over it.
We are 100+ all week, but next Sunday-Tuesday are forecast as 91-94F highs with 70's lows. Riding season starts again!
Too hot to ride, so I had the bike done in almost all CF (except tank panels) and removed 15 or so pounds of weight. Now, wheels and body match.
+1 but riding. My bike with its new CF body gets matt-film coated Saturday and later when we're not 104, I'll ride it plenty.
It has been raining lots here, and streets are flooded, never mind trees are down. Also, I am having this coated on matt-finish film this Saturday, so garaged she stays in the meantime.
Hey, one who hates tech... These links do not work!
Some dealers offer discounts,
I let my dealer charge $50 per axle to change tires on my BST CF wheels. I wouldn't trust myself, No-Mar or whatever.
Funny, I stop at 105. I have ridden in hotter, and gotten ill from it. Now I don't.
