Do not understand why they have the right light , they ride the wrong side of the road no ?   VCIF_a_008

 VCIF_a_008 , maybe, maybe not  VCIF_a055 .


I think the bikes come standard with lights on dip and full and it is only the reflector lens inside the light that is adjusted for the market the bikes go into, left for driving/riding on the left hand side for the road and right for the 'other side'.  The adjustment tilts the light beam slightly away from on-coming traffic.

So, maybe this bike has had a few modifications on the way up, but it doesn't make the overall inpression less ... Impressive ...

You always need a great base bike for the mods to be effective, impressive it is.

Have you seen AT on forest path by 1000PS (varahannes' friend from Austria) VCIF_ThumbUp
(Have a look on Utube) impressive (for me VCIF_ok)
