So here is my offer...

If someone wants to put a group buy together with a minimum of 5 pre orders with 50% deposits.. I'll do another run of fairings. this will give me the capital to acquire the needed materials.

I will also need everyone to send me their head lamps.. or agree to use another headlamp like the new LEDs or maybe the trail tech X2. but they need to be all the same. in that case I'll need at least one unit for R&D/design

work would have to be done in Jan/Feb as that's my slow time with my business. if it gets any later than that in the year.. I will not have much time to work on them. thus delaying delivery. I can have them done in 6 weeks from deposits.

so rally the troops and lets make some fairings! but it's up to you XR650R nuts to make it happen..

Good luck and I look forward to working with you.

Best regards
Ken
Was there a verdict here? I am in and have a donor bike in Austin
