    The Coyote is quite large, but it has its limits. This time we are talking about the desert and that means very pleasant temperatures. Did not need a sleeping bag thick. We do not use tent, because we use bivy. This time we keep everything inside the Coyote except the bottles with gasoline.
    I've practiced climbing many years and I can say that complete an expedition backpack properly is a very important task and do it well is all an art. In the bike situation is similar when the Coyote filled with more and more things.
    In a good mountaineering equipment shop, with expedition items, you can find sleeping bags for use in different temperature ranges and inflatable mats of different sizes and thicknesses. It is essential to always buy good compression sleeves to shrink bags, jackets, mats, and clothing in general.
    For activities to no more than eight days, will not recommend bringing kitchen equipment. This means gas, stove, containers, etc ... too much weight to carry in an extreme activity on a motorcycle. Today there are very good they bring nonperishable food protein and calories to survive many days and take up little space. With some good sausage you can feed you for weeks.

    This time the emphasis was carrying six liters of water per day + 4 water bottles with petrol + food for 6 days + tools. There was not space to practice camping resort.

    From all my climbing and backpacking experiences the single most difficult item to accomodate due to size for extended periods (4 or more days) is food, assuming you have resources to filter water. Favorites have been Mountain House pro-packs but they still take up excessive room but negate the need for pots/pans and don't produce much garbage to haul out.

    or as I like to call it the "Vader" fairing.

    I have a fibreglass version from the same mould, they have joined the air vents (which are connected only at the top on the factory fairing) to the side panels for greater strength.

    I am not the one making them, a friend will be manufacturing and selling them (depending on interest), I just think they look awesome!

    I think there is talk of a 690 RR one also.

    PM me I will send you his details.

    Is this the fairing from South Africa? I believe there if a CF part headed to Dakar if it is?

    I wager a bet the wing is joined to the side trim because it's way easier to mould and reproduce! Just have a look at the amount of work that goes into an OEM part. That said it's a very nice part

    Look carefully at the fiberglass structure ... Don't you find it particular ???? It has to be supported continuously. I presume. Absolutely no longitudinal re-inforcement/beam. Nothing. Niet. Nada. That structure is purely transversal. That means this seats spread the load all along the bike structure otherwise it would break instantaneously. Or at least I would break it instantaneously.
