So when are we all going to hook up for a decent ride? Your bike looks good what sticker kit you getting?

i think they respond once the Basket has goodies in.
As far as a ride goes we going up to Eliot landeens etc the long weekend but will contact you afterwards, have found a brilliant rout of 300km takes  6 hrs and does umkamaas valley and highflats/ Richmond joleyvet. Putting a ride together for another fund raiser for a home that looks after mentally challenged kids and was a great success last year

roadkill, do yourself a favour. be carefull if you put the bike on a centre box to stand strait up. I BROKE MY SIDE STAND SWITCH AND BATTLED TO GET HER GOING.. Also read and do step by step don't jump the gun, Also don't drill any holes in the plastics until right at the end and measure  over and over before you drill. At the end they don't show you a pic but the new fairing goes under the lip of the old plastics. not over .
I have just taken mine off and redone it with lock tight.  Should take a good rainy day and a half to do fitment, every time you get a bit confused have a break and when you return everything fits like a glove. These chaps are genuine engineers

Hello Long Bob,

Hoe lank het jy jou 690 gehad voor jy die Rally Raid fairing op gesit het?
Onthou, oop kole heel pad!!!

The RR kit is fantastic, just got my bike back on Wednesday from fitting and the wind protection is like night and day. It takes a bit of getting used to the fairing not moving when you turn but quality is great, and the 990 light is way better than the stock 690 candle.

Enjoy, and post pics when its done.

velly velley nice.! Fit a tank bag and your seating position changes so your knees don't touch the tanks, makes it comfortable.
