Always loved Nastassja Kinski. And black cats. Nigel beware.I've actually not watched the Cat People movie, must do, the theme song is such a great song.
No, the R is more upright than the RS. You can see this at Motorcycle Ergonomics. I wanted a more upright position, so I made my own RS by getting an R and adding a large screen.Is the LC RS just an R with fairings?
Is ride position, suspension, dynamics etc similar?
Interesting, according to these specs listed the wheelbase is only 10mm difference between the two bikes and the steering head angle is the same.The R bars are higher and the R is quicker steering because of slightly different front forks.
These pictures show how the axle is more forward on the RS.
Where did you get the pillion seat cover from? Been searching all over with no hits thus far.I have an R with the RS bar and tons of other changes. But if you took the fairing off of the RS, the only differences between the bikes is the handlebar, and fork offset which changes the steering slightly. But you could pretty easily adjust the forks to negate or enhance the difference.
I have the RS bar on mine, and have adjusted the fork offset slightly to shorten the wheelbase a hair, and to give the front end more rake. Now the bike is even more responsive in the front end, and the additional weight on the front gives it better feel to me.
The bike is currently apart for some powdercoating and a round headlight conversion, but here's a shot of the handlebar just dangling there. But you can see that compared to the R bar, much less rise.
Pretty sure that is a Diopa, I think from Italy. Sargent makes one in the USA for a little less money that opens from the top like a car trunk. The Diopa you access by pulling the little but pad so the opening looks pretty inconvenient. Also Corbin makes a much blockier looking one, it does have much more storage capacity though.Where did you get the pillion seat cover from? Been searching all over with no hits thus far.
