Maybe I need new goggles but I think this is a good looking motorcycle. The needed rear fender, turnsignal, and mirrors etc. are not going detract from a successful design. This bike has much more personality than the BMW. Bring it on over!

I think it looks fine, with all those attached...

Thanks for the pics!

But putting saddlebags or a windshield on these bikes is like dressing an Italian supermodel in a winter parka.

These are STREET FIGHTERS, and should remain stripped and agile!

The Nobel Prize should be awarded to whomever comes up with an aesthetically passable replacement for the pee cup brake reservoir.

Frame from the 800,650 gs series? Wheels and swingarm from the f800 R model? In all accounts I like it very much even with the screen and saddlebags. A city warrior and a B road anihilator !!!!! Gimme one ! (how many miles do you think one can survive on this seat? )
