Hey guys,
Chimin' in from Vegas....I know I should be at Bike Week but I'm babysittin' the kids 2day :( Plus my money's funny. Anyhow, I've read the posts in response to Hondiego's fairing and I want to touch on something I didn't see anyone else address. First, has anyone gone back to xtremerevolutions and seen the painted up fairing? It doesn't look bad, I ride a black 109 and i think it would look sharp in black with the five or nine inch windshield. I think what throws me off is the headlight nacelle. If you swapped that out for a regular headlight, it would look perfect. However, Hondiego designed the fairing so you don't have to swap out the headlight and the bike retains its originality. I will probably get one eventually. P.S. It's only 75 degrees here today perfect ridin' weather!!!

You know, I'm not really a fairing kind of guy. But that really dosen't look that bad. I still think it takes away from the sportyness of the 109, but it definately look functional and not THAT bad looking.

I still think it looks too big on the bike. IMO, it looks like the 109 mated with a HD dresser. Hey to each his own, that is why there is vanilla and chocolate. If we all liked the same things, life would be boring.

Still not sure. Makes it look like it wants to be a HD when it grows up.
I think he should have molded in the entire headlight area so there would be NO seem between them.
Also, maybe extend the chrome up a little.

I would agree that the nacelle and fairing be integrated, all I need is the shooter though  :doorag: . I appreciate the effort and usability.  :bigthumbsup:

I agree with 'Zep - a seamless design with the nacelle would look better...........but this is not all that bad IMHO.

Not for me, mind you..........since I have the Valk I/S, the M109 is going to stay my "hotrod".

I'm still interested in seeing what Corbin finally comes out with too.

it looks aweful. forget for a moment that i hate the idea of any kind of fairing on this bike...but, if they were going to build that huge thing, they should have made it one piece with a replacement for the stock headlight nacelle.
