Hey! I love what the fairing does for me. What a difference!

It went pretty smoothly, other than I couldnt get the running lights to operate. I chose to mount the stock Honda Turn stalks on the underside of the fairing so I could keep all the originall wiring.

Thanks to Gearhead76, Axelwik, and ebay for making it happen!

She actually looks better with the fairing... Now it's time to rack up the miles.

Marco, I was amazed at the difference in the way it rides. I cant see any real downside to having it on. Low speed handling, high speed handling, whatever. I like the change.

The helmet I am wearing right now doesnt fit well (I have a new one on order) so riding without one would cause it to really get hammered. If I turned my head, the wind would catch it, and it would spin... Heck if I were wearing a football helmet I would have been looking out the earhole!:action: Thats due to a poor fitting helmet, I know...

See ya...

Go get some felt temporarily and pad it out.

Looks good, but then I'm partial to faired bikes.:clapper:Another nice feature is that Craig Vetter made a unit call a "Cycle Sound" to hold a car stereo & speakers.:cooldj: All nestled right at the bottom of the windshield.

I had one with the fairing, but my hearing is sooo poor (car accident) that it would be a waste of time without 14 kabillion watts of power.

I am trying to decide now if I want to put some hard bags on Bargoyle, or go with some soft bags. If Momma UBarW comes with me, I will need a bit extra space.

The trunk I have, which is an addon as Bargoyle was born naked, has been patched with fiberglass on one corner. I think I could spend some time dressing it down, and repainting it to make it a prettier. So I dont think I need to replace it. But those bags...

To me the top trunk makes the bike practical. Just so handy for errands. Holds a 36 case of Diet Pepsi with ease. I prefer the hard saddlebags, but the trunk is most important!

Looks good Ubarw, Glad to help,

I like the hard saddle bags, very usefull, but I leave the trunk off, if I need it it's only four nuts.

Happy ridding

Ubarw,

14 kabillion watts of power sounds about right :cooldj:. Shoot, you wouldn't even have to start the motor
