Desierto 3 Fairing for F800GS, whose got one?
 
Seems that Touratech has run out of there first batch. Thats means there has to be some inmate out there sporting one. My poker winnings are just about there but damn there proud of them.
I need to be convinced on this one before dropping that kind of cash on something that "might'' be worth the money.

I saw they were out too. I was wondering who the hell is buying them and why aren't they bragging about it??

I like the looks of them too, but have yet to see one in the flesh. All the angles of them have made it look like they can't be used with these (headlight shroud):


Or for that matter, the off road headlight grills? I've only seen photos of the Desierto from certain angles and it looks like it'd foul them, but it's unclear.

Also: For that sort of money and given the size of them, it'd be nice if it had some bars to mount rally computers, GPS etc. built into the cockpit of them. Anyone with one managed to knock up something for use with the Desierto 3?

It would be on my 800 for sure if I owned one. I think you can use the off road headlight guard with it too....the adjustability of the shield is great

My thoughts too. Ive yet to spring for the visor just because of that possibility.

Really surprises me none of the FF's on here has this fairing yet. Although man 800 bones is tough to swallow for it.

Another concern Ive got is how well it holds up on tip over's. That dumb ass front brake reservoir guard snapped off on me way too easily! Going to go with the Renazzo (sp?) replacement before the season gets here.

Granted it is the classic KTM Dakar look. I just don't happen to like that look. $800 bones is nothing when it comes to my baby.

Yes, that's one of my concerns too. I can live with my tall 60 metal mule screen shearing in a crash. I'd be sobbing like a baby if I'd just spent almost ten times that and the screen crashed. I might contact TT and see if they just do the "screen" bit as a replacement (IE for if that breaks, but the base/mount is still fine).

I'll let you all know when mine arrives in a week and a half.

You're just saying that so she doesn't try to break your leg again.

Ah yes, pics when you can! I just saw this in person at the Seattle MC show and it was a real eye-catcher.

Looking forward to a review
 
I have been looking at that windshield for a year. Glad somebody has the guts to try it.
