I've been thinking about upgrading mine.

Day trip with big orange bikes. Do puddles count as off-road?

Same day, different quad trail. This trail is not 4x4 friendly, a jeep would be too wide for this trail.

Believe it or not we are turning the bike around so I can go up and down this hill a second time because it was so much fun. It's steeper than it looks, straight on shots of slopes always look less steep because of the lack of perspective.

My Wee-Strom has been nekkid for a couple of years, now. Last summer I decided I wanted to try and improve the available wind protection for the 2 or 3 times per year that I ride it a ways on the highways to get to the gravel roads. A new face was in order. Here's where I'm heading......

.....Gen 1 Nekkid face



Gen 2 Nekkid face


I have some loose ends to tie up and some more minor fabrication, but it's nearly there. Rode it to work today. I like it a lot, so far. I actually prefer the looks of the single headlight but not much of this project has ever been about looks.

That twin headlight set up looks pretty bad-ass

I wonder why touratech hasn't got some kind of fairing replacement.
Something like the desierto fairing for BMW.

I would buy something like that.......even with a "touratech price"
(maybe even get rid of the buffeting )

Have you noticed a difference while riding on a really windy day after being nekkid?

I'm assuming you mean the bike.

If you're referring to side gusts and such, yes. There is much less of a "sail" effect while riding through gusty areas, as well as freeway turbulance, (Santa Peterbuilt winds). Obviously, I get more air around the helmet area but, with the GIVI screen on the single light and more so with Uly screen, it is very clean air with zero buffeting. If this isn't what you meant, let me know and I'll try to answer.
