Does this rally fairing make my bike look fat?

Yes?
Or No?






You are never going to guess where I got it.

Bomber and Ogre win the prize.

However, the prize has been revoked for deflating my manhood; it is not a "lawn tractor," its a compact 4x4 tractor with quick change front implements and a backhoe.

I had no idea how easy it was to come up with a fairing, and its even easier to get rid of.

I've seen home made fairings that look worse and affect handling more...
