Finally Installed my Fairing 5 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
Well my fairing arrived last night and I worked into the late hours installing it. Took it for a ride today and I definitely feel the weight of it. But it's not bad at all. I was cruising around on the freeway around 75 - 80 mph and the speakers still sound pretty good. I ordered this though Mike from ED seats and went with just the amp and Bluetooth handlebar volume control. It works only the volume in my iPod Classic but that's all I need. He also suggested the 5" tinted curved windshield and I'm glad I went with his suggestions. So far I'm very happy wit it. Now I just have to wait until funds are better next year to paint it and my saddlebags to match my bike.

Looks great Mike and the speakers look good But it don't look like much of a stereo you got there

I just got the one with the amp and Bluetooth handlebar remote as I only use my iPod. Kind of a stealth look!

That looks really good. It never stops amazing me how well the fairings compliment the look of these bikes.
I have been debating selling my HD Electra glide and just putting a fairing and lowers on my star and pocketing some cash.
I'm assuming that is a reckless?
How is the fitment with the spot lights on? I guess what i'm asking is if it would be hard to remove and install the fairing with spot lights?

It's a Tsukayu Boox One Storage fairing w/amp. I got this through Mike from ED Seats based on his suggestion. It great around the headlight and driving lights. It's not that hard to remove as I did the installation by myself.

Looks great Mike. Can't wait to see it painted to match.

Thanks again for your business.
