    I wouldn't say totally useless...I felt it does cut down on some buffeting...but not as effective as one would hope. I found it will move around on a rough road in the rain @ HWY++ speeds, that was pissing me off on the Dalton hwy. It should be bigger, but a must doing any distance riding @ hwy speeds when I wear my MX helmet w/the visor, my .02

    You have succeeded in getting my Tiger into the 990 forum. Great pics from your ride. That was my first D2D. I was on the Tiger right behind you in your pic next to Hacky Moto. You know he got picked for the US GS Challenge team this year. I think they finished 9th overall.

    Drunk Uncle,
    I think I camped a few spots from you that whole "event" @ GoldRush! I ended up staying right next to Two Moto Kiwis. I know all about HackyMoto! He is fugen awesome!!! & very humble at that...I don't give a shit what he rides, I saw him pretty much "bunny hop" that 1150 in the tight cone "game". Well... BMW did send him to South America:deal I ended up riding the T.O.W hwy the following day w/some new AK friends, stayed in TOK that night with all the D2D organizers, & was there when, Hackys 1150 came there on a trailer in pieces not 24hrs after those photos! But he survived is all that mattered, small world

    I've re-joined the ranks again.. my third LC8 was brought home Saturday.. then on Monday I took a friend out in 32deg weather and showed him some of my favorite spots along Hood Canal.. too much fog to see the mountains, but the mighty Olympics are behind the clouds on the far bank.. I'll go back and spring and take a shot to prove it to ya knuckle heads.. one of the prettiest spots on the planet.

    anyway, the beast(s)

    Took mine for a little road ride, started off nice and sunny but the higher i got the wetter it got,
    But any ride on a 950 is GREAT.

    Nice job indeed, but i don't like it much: too "heavy" in the lower part and too thin where there should be a tank.

    Indeed interesting anyhow!

    I agree, interesting but awful for the very same reasons.

    Anyway, may be they're just fooling in the garage and it's not a rideable setup? Otherwise where would they "stick" the fuel tank, and how many liters/gallons can it carry then...? and what about the whole air intake system... :huh

    Or... may be I'm short of imagination these days... :lol3

    Not sure cause i don't know german but i think that "thing" on the lower part of the bike is the fuel tank, the red bottle is the expansion for the radiator and maybe the oil tank is somewhere under the seat.

    Anyhow the KMS setup someone linked on the german forums is indeed more near to how i see the adv transformation :)
