I you have black ones I will trade you. The speaker grills and tank bib is too much sun reflecting chrome to suit me.

For about an hour noonish all that chrome in front of me blinds me and then later from the speakers again if I am going East.

I have put blue painters tape on some of it on my all day rides. I was going to take the speaker grills and tank bib off and sand and paint them black when I got back to Texas again before my next long ride.

I wont be back in TX until March.

Of course it doesn't bother you Motomi1, you can't see out of one eye and you're blind in the other

Motomi1...

I dont live that far from you and also ride year round generally but at 7k plus feet. I am glad it does not bother you..... but it does me.... to me it is just too much flashback from the sun. It's just that simple. No conspiracies, no brand bashing, no model bashing (well just a little), just an old fat farts preference. A couple more years riding the Voyager I just might well be blind in one eye also, from fried retinas.
