Does that fairing have any functionality or is it just cosmetic?

Now its a good bit better.

And on the fairing, thanks for the kind words! I have quite a bit of time in sanding, painting, and polishing it! it attaches with the memphis quick detach system like the windshields (i swap between) and could fit your bike pretty easy if they make those mounts for it. But if not there are quite a few 1/4 fairings like it and some other varieties made for the HD dynas and FXR's that make the user make brackets and sometimes move the headlight that would probably be able to fit your bike. and it keeps just enough wind off to be comfortable at freeway speeds without feeling like you're going to get ripped off the bike.
Ill have to look into them. Have a Memphis Fats shield for cold weather and long trips. If they make one that uses those same mounts I may be in luck.

Straddled the saddle after Chickenman called to invite me to a free lunch...
25+ miles round trip, involved in picking up those scents we`re discussing in another thread...
Some pleasant, such as the fresh cut grass at the AA clubhouse and the unpleasant scent of the fart I ripped...
MAN, it lingered between the windshield and my nose for a couple miles


All is better now


I`ll ride with ya,

Better get that checked out Dennis. That can't be normal.

Sunday, rode with my girlfriend. It was her VERY first ride. She ABSOLUTELY LOVES IT!!! Can't wait to ride again...in fact she asked me at lunch today if we can go for a ride again tonight!!!! I gots me a most bodacious biker babe

Its quite functional! I like to ride pretty minimal but, with those mini apes it turned my body into kite and at 70+mph it felt like I was going to be ripped from the bike, and it made my arms tired after a 200mi ride. the fairing breaks the wind perfect so that I still get good wind into the vents of my full face and not a direct flow to the chest. I also did it for looks, but I have a memphis slim 17in I put on when the weather gets cooler, to block some more wind.

Did you happen to try and eat a banana before a ride to calm the apes?

Yesterday was a new license plate
Today room mates niece backed into the MC & knocked it over
At 1st I thought she was joking with me, then realized she was serious
Pissed !!! "
What You're mad ? There's no damage"
Big dent in the tank, 1 mirror messed up, rear turn signal
Tank alone is $1100
Then I have to go down to the beach & make her come up & give me Insurance info
Tell her she has to call/go to the Police & file a report
"What, why ?"
Damage over $600 means a Police report
She acts like I'm somehow the one that has inconvenienced Her
gggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.......26 year old
