Rally Raid screen. Painted the back last night with Plasti-Dip. Such a quality screen, not sure why they leave the back so half-assed looking. Looks great on the bike. Wind test tomorrow.
(Plasti-Dipped and mounted a Dart screen on the bonneville too)

I've been wondering for years - what happened to the first seven good cats?

Addressed an overheating issue on the 950 with CJ's fan and a lower temp switch. I was too lazy to fight with that connector, so I pulled the tanks.

And finally put the motard back together

I like the fender balancing the rest of the bike, trailer and towing vehicle look!

Changed my post so the 950 is the main topic instead of the sidebar. Happy?

And I'd say "your mom's a n00b", but I know my windshield would end up looking like yours. :p

You have fantastic taste in motorcycles. Just got to ride a scrambler for a week while my 950 was on the boat and it's a great bike. I think I'd like the bonny even more! :
