    Howdy from Texas

    Just joined the forum from the home of Blue Bell ice cream in Brenham, Texas. In case you were wondering where that is exactly in the Lone Star State look in the Brazos valley half way between Houston and Austin.

    I'm looking to pickup a 2008 R3T next Monday....just have to sign the paperwork. I've been spending time doing research on the bike and I'm fairly convinced this is ride for me.


    Even after doing my homework, I still have a couple of questions:
    Did these come with a centerstand?
    What functions are displayed in the small LCD on the speedo?
    Any indicator lights..neutral

    Any feedback would be appreciated

    Welcome! Been from Austin to Houston but I guessed I missed Brenham - Blue Bell Ice Cream? I'll have to make a stop next time I'm there!
    The beatings will continue until Morale improves. Arrgh!

    Hello .40 and welcome from a displaced Texan in Virginia.

    That LCD you ask about is Time, Distance to empty (+/- 50 miles), Trip 1 and trip 2.

    Don't try eating that Blue Bell while riding...

    Rivco makes a center stand for the R3 but has some issues (like trying to lift an 800 pound bike up) and it's expensive.
    Neutral light is standard on all bikes, the one you're looking at may need a new bulb.

    Recommend you buy a bike lift with tire vise if you want to do maintenance (eliminates the need for a center stand).
    Regards
