Yep. It's rough as guts if you get close though. BUT... when i fell off & ran into things on it's maiden ride, it didn't break. So I'm satisfied. I'll post some build pics at some stage- there are already a few on the DRZ thread.

My problem with getting the fairing done was the unique nature of the build. I looked at the Mecca systems (like below) & CPW fairings, but anything I got would have to be heavily modified, so I started from scratch.

(Anything look familiar here topo?)

My plan now is to take it all to a local plastic welder/fairing repairer/painter/cook to replicate it without the imperfections. ... and have one to match up with the 17lt Safari tank, and one to match the 28lt safari tank.

Have you ever noticed that when you're out on the bike, nothing else matters?
