Also a ‘12. Strange to have two spots for bolts but provide just one. Go figure. Thanks for info…I won’t worry that I somehow lost a bolt. Now, the many fastener types, that’s a different story.
On one side, the bracket has a hollow pin that goes into a mount. The other side has a bolt. There is no need for two bolts, since with the one bolt in place, neither side can go anywhere and the radiator is secure. The R&G brand radiator guard adds a bolt to the blank side for securing their guard.

I roa up to Memorial Lake & then up through Ft. Indiantown Gap & stumbled upon a little live fire practice in a “village” on the base.

Went for a 340Km round trip to see a good friend who is currently unwell. During the course of the trip on the outward leg my X-Adv achieved one of its highest fuel consumption figures @ 63 miles per imperial gallon. Contributing factors were a very strong headwind while cruising at 125kph for a large part of the journey. That figure is still ok under the circumstances.

200 mile long way around to Marco Island, Florida. I wanted to see how the panniers and top case changed things so rode with them on. You notice their presence but not terribly so. Like @Griff, a substantial increase in fuel consumption between the cases and the headwind.

Yeah not bad considering those factors. I hope your friend gets better….:(:(

Drained and refilled the radiator with new coolant and flushed the brake lines with some new fluid as well. Took the time to clean about a month or so worth of bugs off the windshield while I was at it :) . Shouldn’t need much aside from chain maintenance for a while. Eagerly awaiting august for a laam seat now

Went for a 2 hour ride with a buddy.
First time driving my bike with the stock muffler.
I had an aftermarket can on it since my first ride last year.
I am very happy with the stock muffler.
It certainly wasn’t whisper quiet, but a little growl on acceleration was welcomed.
The driving experience on the highway was much quieter than before.
I’m getting old.
No, make that I AM old.

The newer models definitely have a nicer OEM sound than the '12. I think they learned from the '12-14(?) model which was too quiet. I know I really love the LeoVince and it actually sounds, to me, a lot like the new models. It's not too loud...just loud enough. And now I have to go for a ride.

I was looking at those.
I have only heard them on YouTube videos.
I had one on my Honda Silverwing 600.
I tried running it without the dB Killer, but it was way too loud and barky.
Is yours model # 14189E by any chance?
Running it with or without dB Killer?
