Cool idea.

Not that I needed any more money spending ideas.

Richie Moore's new front fairing... a screen in still under development. Also included is a rear headlight... I think there are bi-Oscar options and some other rally's light thing. Hopefully once my bike is done ill be able to post more photos of it.

The bike in post #9 is one of Ray Peake's builds, fairing is a Givi. Here's a view of the same type of fairing on his R"80" G/SPD. Both pics were taken by me, but I'm not that precious that they can't be used by others. Once they're on the 'net it's open slather as far as I'm concerned.

Britannia Composites, out of Canada.

Expensive and not particularly well made. Junk IMO.

I like the look of the original G/S slipstream deflector but the KTM 640 Adventure fairing also looks nice especially in combination with the 43 L tank :)
The picture below is from the "airhead dirtbikes" thread. It looks like the fairing has been trimmed a bit. Not sure if it's been frame mounted or mounted to follow the steering movement??

I've spoken with the owner of that bike and had a number of pics of it on another computer; from memory, it is frame mounted. The bike is a piece of art.

I did find the owner to be completely unreasonable though; I offered him a straight swap for my 1100GS and he just laughed at me. :-)

Givi do a couple which look OK and work well.

The A210 requires a pair of headlight brackets but the fitting looks neat, and there is a similar bar mounted screen.

Take your pick, not all 80 GS though.
