It's starting to come together well. Just a few more tweaks and upgrades should be complete.

Made them from the cheapest acrylic I could get my hands on. Easy to bend with a heatgun and a pair of gloves. cut the shape out with poster board first, bunch of pieces all taped together where I wanted them and then cut the acrylic with a scroll saw. I've taken the tank off with them installed easily. If I have to take the fairing off I figured using fishing line to slice off the tape would work easily enough. I didn't know how wide I would need to make them, I experimented with V shaped pieces about the same place as the shark mouth stickers would be with some success but these ugly things make it a totally different bike. brought it up to 90 mph without seeing them move at all.

Picked up an 06 DL650 last night. It was a cold ride! Very different from my SV, but I like it.

Here is my addition


I rode all winter last winter, this was on the county road to my house. Studded TKC-80s, they don't plow much up this far.

Wonderful trip down the Blue Ridge Parkway this weekend. Not everyone was fortunate enough to ride a Vstrom, but my buddy and i were.
