:twisted: :twisted: looks wicked pk....... ;)

Does your headlight still show through well enough to (hopefully) prevent idiot drivers from turning in front of you......... they are usually so fkn blind they don't see a well adjusted headlight anyway..... but I'd feel naked without my main low beam giving them a good sparkle....... maybe fit a couple of sharp spot lights down where the 'adventure bike' guys mount theirs.... :idea:

Yeh i was a bit worried about that myself but its not to bad. I think it looks evil now Image
I dont like the look of spot lights / crash bars on the gt, think they are best suited to adventure style bikes.
Here's a picture with the daytime running light on in full sun its still pretty bright when you see it for real.Image

If it was last Friday at Drysdales it was probably my 2014 SDR you saw.

I had a 2018 SDR out for a test ride.

Still debating if I want to change or not. :roll:

Yes it was at drysdale but it was a 2018 model and the cover was solid black, think the bike had an issue with staring?
Wouldn’t think you would see the lights switched on as solid black.

Here`s mine on my Superduke. it leaves the DRL uncovered, which with the amount of Blind Dickhead tinbox drivers on the road can only be a positive. :D
