Nice looking bike!
She's a cutie.
The color...any color...is sort of a departure for me...My last two rides and my cars have always been black. I always assumed that any vehicle I choosefor myself would be black, but there she was, flirting with me.
The fan will come on and off as it may need more air over the rad to control the temp. It's possible something got into the fan or it is noisier than normal. If you let it idle long enough, the fan will come on. It's an easy driveway test of the fan.
I was thinking the same thing...the fan is louder than my previous bike, but this is different. It only squawks for a moment, sometimes for a couple of seconds at speeds over 45mph, usually in 5th gear, sometimes in 4th, and even then, very randomly. Then it might be a long time before it happens again. I can't pin it on anything in particular...accelerating, decelerating, changing gears, applying brakes. Like I said...random.
It doesn't seem to affect performance at all. I'm wondering if something is being vibrated by wind speed as it never happens at low speeds.
Glad you enjoyed it. Sounds like fun times were had.
It is fun, for sure. There's always something interesting to do out there.
The 2-1/2 day ride out there can be a bit taxing, but it's always worth it.
