Him thanks for your repplies.
zxmark9r, cool example. I ´ll look their vids.
I've been readen a bit about Emilio Scotto too, his Honda Gold Wing, and his 2 trips around the globe.
I supose the Goldwind is much heavier than the RS, and the ride position is more vertical too.
The R1 one seems lighter than the RS, but the driving position seems similar.
I didn´t knew voxmagna that the ABS is a fixed feature....mmm. i've ridden a 1200GS this year with the ABS engaged in unpaved roads and it was strange but fine, i dont know if the ABS type is the same bult in the 12RS.
I know stolen figure is a bad figure, but may be i can turn it a bit uglier, with decals.....and dirt!!...
I was even thinking, to make it a little naked, and to ship the body panels to my country to have them at the end of the trip.
I know, if you take off some fairing parts, you left another parts exposed, and you loose wind protection, and maybe i need to find news front turn signal fixing points...it`s a little crazy, but doable..needs a good analisys of pros and cons. Thing that i can´t do now, because i don`t know this kind of details about the bike...
Another think that it´s important is the weight. How do you feel your bike in slow riding?
It's too dificult to pick it up if the bike has fallen on it's side?. Imagine that you are on a slow situation, bad road, and you fall at slow speed.
Another thoughts that can help on that decision?
Even it they seems not veery important ones, they are welcome.
Thanks for your reading.
