~100 miles of night riding

went out with a friend on his '79 CBX... great bike for those of you who don't know about it.... 6 into 6 exhaust... the closest thing to a NASCAR sound you'll ever hear..... makes my brutale SILENT in comparison

a few thoughts with 520 miles on the clock (5 days old)
...........
the headlight, while aesthetically pleasing.... but, horrible lighting
..... on HIGH beam... the filament seems to "wag" with the slightest bump... causing a "flicker" of sorts... must be annoying to oncoming traffic as wsell as those vehicles in front of me
......... does ANYONE else have THIS complaint?

tracks like a dream
very stealth
NO ONE NOTICES this bike...... NOT LIKE SO CAL, is it?

the seat is tolerable
the brakes are OUTSTANDING... thrilled with the brembos
the suspension is harsh.... i need to adjust it... if I ONLY knew how to get the effect for which i was searching (just being honest)

great tires

all-in-all.... i just LOVE this bike, even MORE than i had imagined

.......................
thanks for listening........
any other questions...... please don't hesitate to ask

Greg, I may be more tolerant but I have not noticed issues with the lighting. Agree with the stealth comments, in fact a cop did not even notice the bike while citing me for speeding. He took my insurance and wrote me up for speeding on a 2000 lime green speed triple (happens to be listed on my ins. card)

Some Brutale owners seem to get more notice (based on notes on this forum) but I am happy to avoid it. I have had a few techs from a local Yamaha/Honda/Kawasaki dealer chat about it fondly but I am not bothered most of the time.

Brakes are strong, noticibly if I switch back to the S3 for a jaunt.

i certainly did not (especially at 43 years of age) buy this bike to get noticed
.... so.....
riding UNDER the radar is quite enjoyable, actually

Well I am much older that you - 44 - so I can relate. Perhaps it is less about the bike and more about how "friendly" I look? ;-)

Every year is precious and significant when you reach the down slope...

So Steve,
Where did you get nicked by the cops? Hwy 183, Lime Creek road, ect..? I like to avoid Barney where ever I can.
