And so the beast with the new fairing is almost ready.

It's a trial fit, when it gets a bit warmer I will paint the inside.

Went on easily, a little bit of junior hacksaw and some spacers

Oh the benefits of a black bike :-)

To the others who have the same fairing I expect you will tell me it does nothing for wind resistance!

I think I have traded in my fast cruiser for a fast bruiser :-)

I have the same fairing. I like the air flow but at 80+ mph it can push on you pretty good. Very clean air and no turbulence on my helmet. I like it.

Looking good Keith; going with the black caped crusader theme perhaps you could dye your old blue shorts & wear them over your trousers Wink

Can you elaborate? Which way does it push?

The wind pushes straight onto my upper chest and above. No turbulence but the force of the wind pushing me backwards can get tiring quickly, and if you have a head wind to boot, uncomfortable to me. I am 6' tall with a 32" inseam. Sitting on the floor with my back to the wall it is 35" to the top of my head, just for a reference point.

Good looking ride. How do you like the Oxford heated grips? Did you self install?

The Oxfod grips are great, they are the sport bike versions as they are the thinest. Only two problems, they are a little harder and slighly fatter than the orignal grips and the lead has/is slowly marking the top of the tank each time i go onto full lock or put the steering lock on.

Fitted by the service shop a couple of years ago.

If it's the same as mine, it's an Emgo Venom and you can get them from Ebay.

That is cool; a bit more style than the Dart Classic!

How does this compare, wind protection wise, to the Dart Marlin? Looks like the Marlin is a bit taller?

Love the looks of this Emgo, just looks a bit short/low for much wind protection.

Looks nice, but no wind protection at all!
