Gotta say, I really like the way it looks with them off.
Rough and rugged.

Bit of a bump but love this one, is it white? Hard to tell in shade.

Sweet ride!!! It doesn't look much like a KLR at all, but looks GREAT!! Is the windshield slanted forward a bit? It doesn't look like most KLR's...?

I like what you did with the yellow tape reflectors. They make it stand out a whole lot more! Great idea!

Owner is my buddy gasburner650ss.

Yes the fairing has been cut and tilted forward, hence the polished aluminum wedges.

He's a pretty crafty guy, but unfortunately will be unavailable for comment this weekend as he's going on an ATV trip with his other (ghey) friends...can you say 'Brokeback".

for those interested in my bike check out the thread "KLR 650 winter project".
Still waiting on the Vapor computer and dash combo and a new 2 way + Elka shock. (The shock may take a while to get....any body want to sponsor me???)
