It's a stock pic of my new bike that I got last wendsday night for surdikes in festus. Sorry Kris I know I spelled that all wrong but you still get the props. They were as good if not better to deal with as abernathies. I will have my bike serviced by them rather than the guys around here. I like Honda but they want you to wait a week for a oil change and festus is open 10am till 7pm so I can ride up after work and have it changed.

Congrats on the new bike Gleny. I was interested in your FZ1, however I lost my job and that definately changed the financial outlook for awhile.

btw if the GP bike has no fan how does it get air in for combustion?

I wish I could make it, but I'm on-call this weekend. Well I guess I'll post a couple of pics of my latest project for the bike. I have been scouting e-bay for a rear seat cowl, but all I have seen is the crappy Targa cowls. The cowl is almost 200bux from honda. So I decided I'd make my own, with the rear seat pan. I cut the shape I wanted out of wood, and mounted it to the pan, streached fleece over it, put a soaked the fleece in Fibreglass resin, , then put fibreglass mat on, and soaked in resin again, let it cure. Then i did some sanding with my D/A sander. Then body fill, and alot of hand sanding. The pics are the second layer of body fill. I am letting it dry tonight, and doing the final sanding, then I will give it a good coat of primer. My paint from ColorRite will be here Tuesday. Anywho....here are the pics......Looks really rough....The second Body Fill needs sanded.........

Your just mr fix it man. I can work on things justabout as good as I can spell and we all know how great that is. If you ever need help messing something up I'm your man. It's ruff now but it will look great after you are finished. They always turn out nice in the end.

I hope you all are having a great day riding! It's freakin' nice out!!!

99, it makes me think of a kawasaki cowl. It fits the shape/curves of the tail well, but what about the rest of the bike? I'm not too sold on the saddle shape, but I envy you and your abilities.
