Are those 690RR tanks or did Alberto make those? either way are they plastic or composite? Also, found a cheap source for that fairing if you ever need a replacement.

You could probably just unbolt the swingarm and get most of it home..
Looks like it could dry up like cement.
Clearly you were not going fast enough.

I don't think there was a bottom so it was the only thing that kept me afloat ......as the actress said to the bishop

I was trying to leap into the back, almost made it too

Clearly not quick enough and I would have unbolted it if I could find it. I spent $10 on pressure washer on the way home, didn't want to but it was unbelievably hard to shift, I'll need some soaking time and a toothbrush before it's actually clean enough to change the brake pads and repaint the rims where the paint's been worn off

Very nice.

Id be really interested in a pic of your cockpit there, also what lights have you got to go with the fairing?

with all the talk of wind shields, fairings etc i looked around and cant get my head around the cost of them. After sitting at 90mph on the motorway i just had to do somthing about the wind blast before i ripped my neck muscles
The answer i came up with was this little rascle and although not that nice looking it does what i built it for and very well too
total costŁ0.00 thats right nowt. made out of a plastic bucket, a few stickers i had around the garage and a bit if edging strip
have to admit i am quite pleased wit it
