The Bike - C14/GTR 1400 / Re: The Future of th C14
« Last post by maxtog on Yesterday at 10:32:23 pm »
IF I wanted another C14 and was going to write a letter, I would just ask for the H2 SX rider interface be added to the C14: gauge cluster, electronics package, controls, and KQS. Have no idea what this would make the new bike cost, but hopefully less than 22 grand.

I *love* the C14 analog gauges and wouldn't be happy losing even the analog speedometer.  But that color screen on the H2SX SE (note, it is ONLY on the even MORE expensive SE) is nice, indeed.... so that would be a fine swap for our small mono.  Screen cost- minimal.  Cruise is almost no cost, just a $20 stepper motor and some linkage.  I clutchless upshift all the time, so not sure I would even care about KQS.  LED lights- no brainer, and doesn't cost anything more.  Add a few extra buttons, and some reprogramming, a few tweaks here and there.....  I can't imagine any of it would really cost more than $1K additional (even with cornering lights added).

Yes, the H2SX has everything you want in a Connie and less (less weight, less displacement) for more (50% more MSRP).

It clearly doesn't have everything *I* want in a Connie!  ;)   If it were the same price, I would still pick the C14.  Even if it were a lower price, I would still pick the C14.  Now, if you could include the things the C14 has that the H2SX lacks, I would be salivating.... even at a higher price.  Make it silver, and I would lose my mind :)

Yeah, there is that whole "dew point" thing.   When you hit it, and it is humid outside, anything colder than the air will be pretty wet, quickly.  Ventilation does help (it helps to equalize the temp and also helps with evaporation).  Of course, ideally, it would be air-tight, which would stop the humidity, but that isn't realistic... or temperature controlled, but that is expensive.  Some people try to opt for air-tight (as much as possible) and then use large buckets of desiccant (like silica gel) to try and capture what moisture does get in.  But, again, kinda expensive and a hassle (since you have to "recharge" the desiccant regularly).

It's no different than a sleeping tent without a ground sheet...you will wake up being dripped on.

Thanks for the replies so far....  I wondered about ventilation.... my shelter is a plastic sort of tarp material... and was quite shocked at the amount of water there was.... I hit it with a broom.... and... let's just say.....lol.... I walked away like I'd just stepped out of the shower fully clothed.... lol

I wondered if I were to put a large 12v fan in there if it would be enough as I have some 12v solar panels.... that i was thinking of hooking up.... but not sure if theyd be enough..... or even effective....

I've covered everything in another tarp inside...... but it kinda defeats the purpose of the shelter....
