Otherwise, the HP2E is all fun if fine tuned with Rapidbike etc

Im changing out my front light with the one Holan made. Its the BMW g450x headlight with custom made bracket that will hold a gps or road book along with the carbon fiber ralley fairing that is taller than the origional g450x one but looks oem. Scorred the new light, cf fairing, and bracket for 115 pounds plus 15 pounds shipping or $203.00 us total. "what a deal"

GSMarc, I was tinkering around with the idea of making a carbon fiber fuel cell copy of the f800gs twin tail tanks, but formed to fit either side of the frame spars and hp2 seat. Way more fuel capacity and less weight up front unlike the HPN tank. What do you think?
