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.
