I rode with Alan (the silver Ninja 250 stream-liner) on the I-80, through Utah, in gusting 35mph crosswinds, during a downpour, complete with simi-trucks, and he wasn't getting blown around any more than I was on a stock 2005 250. Craig's design is sound.

I imagine one would have to get used to the long tail sticking out in the back. However, Alan seemed to be able to ride around town without issue.

Looks great so far. I am going to try to find a car tire for my PCX when the rear gets replaced The stock tire is getting pretty flat already at 3,000 miles.

I am friend of Bandito's_2 and this project is awesome, the LenaweeTrekker and I were over to his house and helped him make the form the form for these pieces that he has made, it was cool being part of history that someday might be bigger than it is already. We had a blast over there, lots of brainstorming and some cool video potential stuff went on. I am going to pay Bandito_2 a visit and lend a hand if needed and also get some more video, this is too good a project for it to go to long without some video posting on YouTube. Still wish we had a nice shop to do this work at, man my wife would have fits with me, heck I would be there every day....

They should have kept the roof line with less slope all the way to the back to eliminate the faux trunk flat spot.
