    i was actually meaning the other pic with the safari tank well aware that one is a acerbis.

    who cares good shit anyway.

    hopefully with the demise of the 'big' bikes in dakar there will be some cheap kits kicking around...

    Other good option is the mecca fairing and the rally-raid uk tanks, could be switched from rally to enduro in minutes.
    it would have cleaner lines , the RRuk kit kinda sticks out on funny angles , doesn't flow IMO

    that looks great.

    i have a slight concern... will you be able to balance that battery there while you ride.


    and... are you gonna put your race number on the front? is it req'd in oz for races.?

    thats some serious glow back from the head lights might bring a cool backlit to the rally cockpit
    you could channel it into you road book
    or or or you could swing a mini disco ball off the back of your ico for a real dazzling effect.... to much??

    I´ll be interested how you find the low beam. I got a set of these for my build and the low beam patten looked really wierd. On the low beam light there seems to be an adjustment just behind the which may be the ¨clockable for driving on either sided of road¨ part of the design which I never got round to changing or even figuring out before i crashed it.

    great build by the way, makes me itch to get on with mine:clap

    Looking good. I recently had a ride on a friends bike with HID converted Hella's and they are great.

    Are you still planning on having a mold of the fairing made?
