Re:Finally Installed my Fairing 2 Months, 1 Week ago  
Looks good. You have it sitting down nice and close to the headlight and not too far forward. It took me a while to find the right combination for mine and having 4" risers gave me more latitude in mounting it. I've seen others that don't look quite right with too much of a gap between the headlight and fairing and some hang way over the front of the headlight. Good job!

wow, that batwing looks really nice. I have been wanting to get one as well and really only listen to my music from my phone, I don't think I would need a head unit either. I was looking at it on their website and it seems to come with a lot of amenities.

You should check with Mike from ED Seats. He's a retailer for them. Set me up real good but it took 5 weeks to come.

Re:Finally Installed my Fairing 1 Month, 3 Weeks ago  
Well I had my first long trip with the fairing and I must say I'm inpressed. I feel it actually made my bike better to ride. Unfortunatly I should have checked all the bolts after my first couple of rides as on the way to Street Vibrations I lost 1 of the lower mounting studs.I had LocTited them but still should have checked. I've emailed Tsukyau and Mike from ED Seats to see about replacement parts. Hopefully I can get them by next weekend.

That looks really good. Great fit. Is that a Tsukyau fairing?

Looks good! The ride is definitely better with a fairing, I've been debating on whether or not I should throw mine back on (not only to change the look a bit, but for the ride quality)

Missed you out at street vibes brotha! Had a great time though, just got back last night.

Thanks Adam, we had a great time too! We should have exchange numbers and had a beer or something.
