Robo-Boogie slapped this together yesterday so he could ride home from college today. Five gallon bucket and zip-ties. Note the support is made from the bucket handle. Maybe some competition for the rally moto kit...

Oh, and gimmie a call back whenever you get a chance Chris. Would still like to talk to you about adapting one of those fairings to the 3.4L Acerbis tank.

Ned rode a bike with your fairing on it this past weekend at the Roaming Rally...the swamps, forests and trails of Canada couldn't damage the quality of the fairing and mount

Here is a link to the full build-thread for that very same bike:

http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=816122

Here's the bike, all done!





and finally:



I'm pretty darn happy with the way it turned out.

A few things to say overall:

1 - The bike is amazing for long distance dual-sport riding. This weekend I rode 800 miles off road, with lot;s of higher speed big gravel runs, and the fairing was great at speed. We were regularly running 130kph in the cold, and the fairing provided nice laminar flow that hit me just about on the shield of my helmet. Great for clearing water off the shield!

2 - The kit is great to live with. It is off literally in about 1 minute, back on in about two minutes. It is a non-issue to take off.

3 - It seems bomber - I've dropped the bike a few times, and somehow the fairing doesn't even seem to make contact with the ground.

4 - It seems expensive, but compared to other overseas options, the all-in cost to get this stuff from RallyMoto seems reasonable, given the super quality of the lights, uprights, faring, the mounting and the wolfman bag options...at the end of the day, it is very good value for someone who cares about quality.

5 - Chris is a great guy, and worthy of our support. If you're even remotely thinking that you'd like your bike to be as cool as mine ( ) then you owe it to yourself to get in touch with RallyMoto at http://www.rallymotokit.com.

Here's one last shot with the beast in it's element, all dirty and stuff (I've been accused keeping my bikes too clean - which this bike certainly is not most of the time!).

I recently bought c.vestal's 530. The Rally Moto Kit is excellent.

Bump for a good kit! I have been wanting a rally type bike and considering buying a 450-530 just to put this kit on it.... Looks fantastic.
