Ha, glad you liked it. No motorcycles or humans were harmed in the taking of that picture, just hit a soft patch of sand. I need to update my sig file but you can read the whole ride report here: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=690281

No moon. Just awesome being there. Stroms headlights work well on a dirt road

Headlight is Suzuki GSR600...




...fairing is a modified Honda Fireblade item.
Chopped, shortened and re-welded.




The screen is a chopped down aftermarket item for a DL1000 K2/K3

Thrown into the same bucket, it comes like that....




Here's the whole story

And the latest effort, a K9 WEE
