Asked about LED head lights....seems they will not be on the first set of bike coming in the march time frame. Not sure DOT has/will approve...people at the show just did not know.
I think the idea on the knob is that you reach across with left hand...would be at a much better angle it seems to me doing so on that side vs. the left side, but who knows. At the Long Beach Show I was told absolutely the LED has been approved for US. Did they tell you at the show that the first batch wouldn't have LEDs or are you just speculating? That would be a bummer as it's a feature I'd like and I'm near the top of the list at my dealer.
