Thanks Joe, I had forgotten!
I sent him a pm the other day asking if he has gotten any time for the project. No response yet so he must be busy with something. I'd like to see what he makes of it since the beginning was very promising.
Sorry for the lack of updates. I've been working on other projects lately. I havent had any rush on this one as I wont be riding the XRR for a while. I will be getting to it I assure you and will post back as soon as I do.
Spent the better part of 2 weeks off and on mudding/taping/painting the workshop. Got the epoxy floor paint done as well as a bunch of organization. I need to work in a neat shop. 1/2 the shop is done.
Here are a couple of pics:
WOW :eek1 Very Nice!!!!! What did you use on the floor? Professionally done?

Yeah, effin nice. Very jealous!
Thanks Guys. Ucoatit, did it in a weekend. Turned out OK.
Thanks for the info Wes. What did you do for the lip (edge)? did you just carry it over?
I did the floor up to the wall then I put vinyl baseboard on. Its adhesive backed to stick to the wall and I used the appropriate adhesive to stick it to the floor and hopefully get a positive seal. I can take a closeup if you'd like.
I am talking about the lip/step at the front of the garage. Take a look at a pic of my garage/step (with the nice oil spot :ddog thanks to the wife). also how does this hold up to the winter (snow / Salt...) something we in Canada have to worry about.
I like your neighbor! What is the update on her?
+1 on that... the new avatar is nice in a family way, but the old one really got the blood going :)
I simply stopped the paint under the weatherstripping so you cant see the transition. Chemicals have no effect on this stuff. Its very smooth and hence very easy to clean.
Just an FYI on my design. As usual I've been reading these f-ing forums too much... I'm adding 4 - 10W LED lights to the fairing design. I'm going to run 2 on each side of the KTM headlight. So, my headlight setup will consist of the following:
KtM 990 Headlight with 35W HID, 1400 lumens
2-10W with spot reflector, 900 lumens x 2
2-10W with medium reflector, 900 lumens x 2
Thats a total of about 5000 lumens and a total of only about 6 A of power draw.
I'll post here when the machining begins. Unfortunately I'll be away with work for most of November but I'll have most of December off.

And here are some pics of the unit I'm copying, sort of. Essentially split it down the middle and it gives you an idea of what I'll build. This guy does amazing work!
This is MY favorite Kinda makes you light headed sometimes

if my neighbor's headlights looked like that I'd prolly give up riding m/c's and try a different style of riding, plus I would be blinded, would not want to focus on the fairing, I digress.
Wes, NICE JOB ON THE Garage and design on the support for the BRP. I'm not a fan of fairings, I ride too much off-road alot of single track and road. "guilloutine effect" come to mind! To each his own. If I road to Alaska on my BRP I'd have a fairing without a doubt. I'll keep watching for more photo's from the neighbor!
Is that pic at night with the bicycle headlight for real? That's just amazing!
More info on htat product please.
For more details on the light you'll have to check out the thread I linked to above. Those MTB guys have some pretty strict camera settings so yes, that is a real photo!
Some of my parts have arrived so I'll be working on it over xmas.
As far as the fairing goes, I'm going to use a 990 windshield. Hopefully my neck can take it ;-)
Look at the pic info and you will see that the exposure is for 6 seconds. That would make Nancy Pelosi look bright.
