How much does it cost?

I will be grateful for answers, thanks!
I bought the kit on Ebay. It's 35 W and 6000K. For me it was 57 euros, shipping included.
I believe this guy from the US sells the same kit: Ebay.

My Trophy was serviced last week and I was given a brand spanking new F700GS as a courtesy bike... quite enjoyed it, not much different in performance in the city and a bit more flickable through traffic. Being lower it of course felt closer to the ground compared to the 800 which was a bit of an odd sensation at first, making the bike feel quite a bit lighter despite only a few kg difference in weight. The ESA does actually make a noticeable difference on London's bombed out roads too—wish it had been available on the 2012 models.

I've written a 'first impressions' review here...

Bit of a temperature contrast between your pix and mine Toowheels: I had 34 degrees C temps (93F) most days. I'm guessing yours were a bit lower

Haha yes Dorsland! Maybe not quite as cold (about 4* C) as it looks but I'd still much rather be over your way!

Looks like some fine riding and camping!

Enjoy!

I guess it's an acquired preference but I don't like riding much once it gets below about 12*C here in winter (and that doesn't happen often fortunately!). Do your heated grips have a third and fourth setting?

That photo of mine taken with the sandstone cliffs in the background gets snow in winter but even then I don't think temps get down to those you guys ride in.

If you ever get down this way, give me a shout, be good to do a trip or two with you.

Haha...Canadian bikes should though
I do have a set of the Giant Loop Bushwacker wind/rain deflectors (they're due out very soon but you may not need them ) over my handguards. You can see them in the top pic and from the side here:


I certainly will and thanks for offer Dorsland!

-not to worry though it won't be any time soon
