Just so we'll have the proper chronology on the "Last Vetter Fairing" , start reading about it here:
Actually, of the 61 chapters so far, (as of December 1, 2012) Alan Smith (owner of the Ninja) wasn't even mentioned until
chapter 39. And at that time he was using a Honda CRF230. The Ninja project, designated as "Streamlining a Ninja" which
is the application of "Kit #1" doesn't begin until chapter 44. So the bulk of the design work was done first around the Honda
Helix then was later applied to the Ninja, not the other way around. And for the last few chapters, the "design" work was
being done on both the Helix and the Ninja concurrently.
Just curious, but does anybody else have it seriously mind to do this to their bike? (scooter or motorcycle)
Myself, I can't wait.
