I'm very interested to see more about this fairing. Just finished a 6000km slab trip to Mosport and back and damn near went deaf, even with ear plugs in. I'm wearing a Shoei RF1000 on the highway, so that should not be the issue. This fairing seems like it may be the answer that I'm looking for.

Has anyone run one of these fairings with the Highway DirtBike handguards?

Have to give props to this screen. He pushes the air up over my helmet making for a much quieter ride and keeps the dew off my helmet screen during the morning commute.
I am currently on a 2 week trip and today I got caught is some serious rain.
The screen also helps keep the spray off of cagers tires from hitting me directly on the helmet. So far I am very happy.

Would it have been possible to have made it uglier ?

I suspect yes, but then they would have had to put touratech on it and charged $800 for it.

After using mine for a few weeks I find I'm hearing all sorts of little noises I never did before - I guess that's a good thing lol. Another benefit is far fewer bugs on my helmet...

Contacting Britannia composites

I have tried to contact Britannia both through their web site and by e-mail. My computer tells me that
The address www.britanniacomposites.com is not valid. Can anyone help with the correct address/coordinates?
Thank you.

I just returned from a 5407 mile trip with the BC F800 screen.
The screen made the trip MUCH more enjoyable than it would have been otherwise. I adjusted the screen so it pushed the air up over my helmet and MUCh improved over the stock screen for highway miles. Thanks Ian.

We also just returned from a 5000 mile tour of the US southwest, the fairing was flawless. Nothing vibrated loose, screen stayed where I set it, bugs stayed off my face shield, my ears thank you. The only niggle I have is that the gps perch could be a little more vertical - the reflection from the mid-day sun made it virtually unreadable, although a lot of that is Garmin's fault for the ridiculously glarey screen coating on the Zumo 660.

Still able to hear, thanks Ian.

Glad you've had great trip guys, it makes it all worthwhile (nearly !)

Anyway, a 'tip' on the gps perch. You can probably 'pad out' the top bolts of your GPS holder, so that the whole thing angles downwards and a couple of guys have done this. The problem is that everyone's a different height, but it's something I'm going to keep in mind for the upcoming Mirage 3 for the 1200 ( still in the brain at the moment !)

Cheers Ian

I am considering a TT Des III but the Mirage III is also an option. Since I live in Norway. Can you buy Mirage II at online stores in the UK or elsewhere in Europe?

You can get it directly from us if you want. Shipping is $68.

Thanks for the quick reply. I have a daughter studying in UK and she can shop on net there and give me the screen for a gift. This will prevent her/me from high freight costs and Norwegian 25% VAT. Therefore, TT Des III may be as cheap as the Mirage II. But I have to think about this.

After some thought, I see that a TT Desierto fairing will be much more expensive even though my daughter to take it to Norway from the United Kingdom. Britania Composite (Ian) has given me great feedback regarding other questions about Mirage 2 now on the weekend. Mirage 2 looks great and I've decided to order a fairing now. I look forward to the assembly.
