I think this guy has been listening to you guys talking about adding weight to your rides and getting a slippery body.
Couldn't find any fibreglass so he thought he'd kill 2 birds with the one stone and use some bricks to build this fairing.
Like the rake and trail on the forks.
So he would probably run APS, just can't figure out the power source...
Keep the shiney side up........

Make sure you have the Rule Book the right way up when you read it Harky ..... it's the forearms that are hidden in APS mate ....
