Hi freetour

It's a puig screen. To mount, simply use a couple spacers (about 1/2 inch) on the headlight mounts and bolt there. In England, the screen is about 30 pounds.

At Long Last

Always wanted one. When I heard they had stopped production I decided to get one before it was too late. Brand new last week Friday. The back tires not so new anymore, doubt it will see 1200 km's. Try the TKC when it gets the 1000 km service next week.

Yep. The skid plate is tricky to mount with a full Remus, but if you leave everything loose, it will fit - I had to move the collector too. Once it is on, the center mounts are to the frame and very stout. I have seen Hepco Becker bars on HPs - I would go that route if you can confirm that you don't have to take the bars off to adjust the valves. I run that set-up on my GS and I like the coverage better. I haven't crashed the HP, just a few drops when I couldn't get my footing, but my my GS has had a few scrapes with mother earth. A little sanding and paint - good as new.

Great shots gunner

Like SQD8R, apart from meeting up with friends who have an HP2, I have only seen one on the road (on the road to the Hamptons about this time last year)
