Concours 14 / ZG1400 General Chat and Tech / Re: 2015+ C14
« Last post by JaL3 on Today at 02:59:31 pm »
If I remember correctly, the steering bearing seal is thinner i.e. less friction. I have not tried a pre-2015 C-14 so can't say anything on how much it affect low speed maneuverability, if at all.

Added the Kawa badges that I have been obsessing about since I got the Bike painted last month.  Finally settled on some Black ones I found on eBay at http://stores.ebay.com/wheelieracing/ that turned out pretty nicely.  Much easier to mount than I thought and they appear to be as durable as the factory types.  Got 8"x1" set for the Center Fairing, and 5" set for the trunk and front plate behind the screen.  $20 for all.  Have not found any in Black that say "Concours 14" for the side panels, so if anyone knows of any please let me know.

Cheers!

I have a blue 2010 and I noticed the blue reflective tape you have on your bike and thought it looked good and a good idea so I ordered a roll of blue on ebay last night.  $2 shipped, 2" wide by 10' long.  Not bad.

Did you also put reflective tape on the side panniers?  I'll probably put a strip around the bottom portion of the bags and try to make it look like it was factory.  So it can be seen from the rear, side, and front.   I like the safety part but want to minimize the ugly.

That looks pretty cool, appreciate the tip!
I have a Sena and listen to my music via Bluetooth, it looks like this would be a nice way to change tracks on the fly.
Can you work the buttons okay with gloves on or nah? It looks pretty small.

I love the concept, thanks!

Don't have snooze-control yet. Waiting for ZG (or Kurt) to find that farkle. Cruise control is pretty nice though, but still getting used to that.

it makes Iron Butt rides a lot easier!   :great:

Tell Denise to bring a helmet....

I quit!

Riding Gear / LD Base Layer

Got some new LD Comfort, 2 long sleeve moc turtle and 2 leotards. The stuff is ultimately comfortable in cold weather, I will see soon enough how it is in the heat.
I was also pleasantly surprised to find out I was supporting local Washington State business when it showed up USPS the next day.

hey guys....being a doubting Thomas, I'm kinda skeptical that this thing would provide much protection in a serious accident.  is there any good independent info about their performance?  I don't usually ride with back protection except on track, where I have a rigid back protector.  what's your thoughts?

Drivers who rear end someone are always at fault here, too. I was nearly nailed by a girl in a Honda with a pink license plate right after I got my C-10. I believe she was texting.

So sorry to hear this. Hope  you're okay. If you are NOT, go to the doctor TODAY and establish a benchmark. Don't wait.

Riding Gear / Re: NEW 2018 Riding Gear
« Last post by ghostrider990 on Today at 09:47:06 am »
I sampled both a 2018 Klim Badlands Pro, and a Revit Dominator GTX.

The Klim was a seriously nice piece of Gear, but sadly it just didn't fit me the way i needed it to, so it went back.
I'm not as enthusiastic about the Kodiak, given it doesn't have Superfabric at the impact zones, but i may give it a try at the end of the season for size when they're back in stock, and I need cold weather gear again.

I still have the Dominator, waiting on the Pants to come out of back-order to see if they actually fit me.
I like many things about it, but it does fit VERY euro, even in an XL i'm pushing maximum.  My biggest issue is that the Biceps and arms are very narrow (tight) and I'm not a big guy.  Going up another size would make the arm length too long, and it's already a few inches longer than I need it to be.
Technically speaking the Seesoft armor isn't nearly as nice as the D3O armor in the Klim.
D3O is next generation, and I'm not paying more $ to upgrade an already expensive jacket.

The Dominator is showing it's age, and it's one of the most expensive suits on the market, and Rev'it has no clear plans to update it until 2019.

It seems that everything is a compromise.  Decisions Decisions.
