Nice job on the BasketShield. One question, was the waste basket DOT approved?

If it's BDA approved. DOT doesn't matter.

Looks great Mark.

I like that the mounting screws appear to be in-line with each other and basically vertical.

It looks like a Madstad type adjustable mount could be set up real easy on this.

Running a smaller screen you can run it up on the road, run it down on the trail, plus the smooth air benefits from raking it too.

Oh, yea...Big Dog or anyone who has removed the stock parts,

What is behind those wind screen screws?
Is it a solid metal frame or plastic?

The B.D. plastic bucket modded screen definitely proves the BMW Terra is directly competing with the KLR... I'll give you points though, as your made up screen looks better than the hard parts one that is being offered at a fraction of the price... I wonder how a milk crate fits on the back?

My money is on GIVI coming up with a screen soon.
Heck they may have made the OEM one.

I'm bettin' Cee Baileys or somebody else will make a nice windshield for this bike. They may have something already that will work.

Even though this bike isn't for me I am enjoying the thread and your contributions to it...

One of these engines in my 640 chassis would be the ticket...

Hmm...the chain is even on the correct (right) side of the motor for that! Go for it!

Edit: Let's see - need the TR-650 wiring harness and computer (to support the FI) along with the fuel pump. If you can put a Versys engine in a KLR frame, this should work. Hmm...radiator fit, exhaust routing...

Dang, just wasted $120 on a Pelican. Dry bag in the milk crate is tempting!

Here are test fit pics of both:

I just heard from my nearest Husky dealer here in Canada that the price of the Terra will be $7999.99. A full 14% more than the US pricing even though our dollar has been at parity or above the US$ for more than a year.
