Those "plastics" look a lot like the Touratech suplimental fuel tanks to me.

Ding, ding, ding. We have a winner.

It's a '07. The beak and tank cover were painted with DupliColor "School Bus Yellow" and the side covers were replaced with the Touratech Aux fuel tanks. A little cutting, some machining, and welding and the H&B tank guards were widened 1.5" on each side to fit the wider tanks and, presto....a GSA clone.

She's undecided about selling the F650 as of yet. I'm waiting for a chance to go out and play with the Spyder in the mud research the traction control issues.

It wasn't too bad riding home last night, actually. I had to stop for groceries on the way home and was asked to pose for a picture with some tourists while on my bike in the snow. One of them stated, "I'd hate to ride my Harley in weather like this.". I replied, "I understand, I'd hate to have to ride a Harley, too." It took him a second to get it....oh well, at least his buddy chuckled.

Watch it! Some of those Harley riders are a bit sensitive about their rides!

And of the way you address them. They like to be referred to as twatwaffles. Use that term with 'em next time and you'll see their eyes light right up.
