Really? I think the screen ruins it.

Good advice. Your valve guides will love you for it...

It's true, for those wanting to look at it, marvel at it's naked perfection and ride it occasionally it's an eye sore.
For me a screen is a necessity for actually riding it how I like to do things - long days in the saddle.
I did a 1300 mile ride to Utah and back to LA in two days without a screen and my butt just can't take it from the pressure transferred from my chest.
Since there's only one screen option available at this point without custom fabrication, when I'm riding the NineT cross country starting next week it will have to do. 😜

^ lmao

I have seen a black wunderlich cover. that looks better but not a big fan... Does it significantly cut down the air pressure?

The wunderlich fairing came today, seems to help with pressure off my chest, should be better for long rides for sure.













Then, preparing for an upcoming long ride I mounted some Kriega Overland 30 bags on the bike. They fit perfectly and should serve me well when traveling, can't wait to spend some quality time getting Lost on this bike!








I think the Wunderlich looks nice, but the silver just "pops" too much. I would've preferred black.

I think the windscreen looks great - the fact that it actually helps is a bonus. Plus he's riding it and I'm sitting here drinking coffe and looking at pictures.

This bike is really growing on me. I thought I would never get rid of my R100 but this has me thinking. Good thing there is a months long waiting list.

I think it looks good, but a gloss black with silver accents would be nice too. It's small and would be easy enough to get painted to personal preference I think.

with a few cosmetic cafe styling cues.
Everything looks ok until you get to the seat. It is too short and looks like a cheap café bike with budget being the main concern. Take a look at DLrides bikes, the tail section protrudes beyond the tire as it should. It just looks to home built at the rear.

Can one honestly spend a day on that seat?

Yes, without a windshield it's painful though, even with an Airhawk pad.


No matter, Bill Mayer Saddles did me right last week and goodbye stylish yet less than perfect OEM seat, hello comfort.
