Basically same bike under the skin. You could damn near build a new R6 with aftermarket + Ebay parts. Disappointing

Ugh, Roadking with horrible paint job. No thanks.

You could say I went another way... I picked this up today:

Opinions on the Triumph Bonneville Bobber?

^^ I'm digging it. Triumph has enough heritage cred and they can't build the Bonnie fast enough for demand.

That seat is sexy!

How's that new helmet treating you?  Interior noise?  Weight?

I've only had one ride with it so far (getting cold here!) but the weight was great and noise was about the same as my Arai.

I did ride with my headphones in though vs. the earplugs/Sena speaker combo that's in my Arai

One snag is that mounting a Sena won't be straightforward because of the plastic gasket that runs along the base of the helmet.

I reached out to ICON and they suggested doing some cutting of that gasket to get the bracket to fit.

Not sure if I want to go that route but we'll see.

You guys still riding? I took a decent one on the weekend and wasn't too cold but it's getting there soon.

I just rode in today. Mid 40s and the fuse on my heated grips is blown..... will be 60s-70s for lunch and the way home though

I just got a Bell Qualifier DLX helmet. Loud and buffety as fuck.... to be expected for a ~$100 helmet. But it has a transitions visor which I absolutely love. Riding in the dark is really nice now. If we have a warm winter (which doesn't seem likely) I might be able to ride year round.
