Thanks you all guys!
I do about 80kms a day on my bike 40km each way to work and back all year round in the UK. The stock tyres are excellent in the wet I have never had any issues with loss of grip. The seat is absolutely fine in all weather, main part is leather anyway so just wipes off the other material (neoprene??) dries very quickly but does leave a watermark. I just clean this when I clean the rest of the bike and comes straight off..
Enjoy the bike, you will love it!!
It's great to hear that. I got the feeling that most people only ride the bike from March to October and it scared me a little bit. My bike and I, you know, we are going to get wet a lot haha although it's not something that bothers me
Welcome to the boards and congratulations on the bike! Haven't heard of anyone having issues in the rain, once you ride with the proper etiquette, you got it no problem
Now... mod plan list?
Let's say I already have some things in mind hehe.
No doubt I would start by painting the plates covering the radiator in black. Then I would go for an exhaust change, a flat handlebar, and maybe something else in the short term
In the long run, as you know, the possibilities with this bike are endless >
Anyway, my limit is that I ALWAYS have to have a two-seater seat, since my wife and I enjoy little routes around the area where we live (montainous and winding
) visiting villages and so on.
I hope it's not a very uncomfortable bike to ride two people, keeping in mind that this bike is not a Goldwin 0
