Probably. That's the coolest thing about it though, for me, knowing that I designed and made something original, that has a real purpose, and looks awesome, haha. Next I need to make a seat cowl...

i was about to say that's the place that gets the most road grime and dirt, then i took another look at the post author and realised that's not an issue :-P hell, you'll probably use another layer of resin after each ride to make sure it sparkles properly :P still, it looks like a great piece! gz! ;D i'd have used yellow duct tape to add some speed....

Haha, nah, since the bike is satin finish, I used a matte clear coat. I want it to get dinged up so that I know it's working!

Sweet so you're coming North then? I know a million roads that we can test this thing out on. I need ten minutes and we'll know how good it's working  :'( :banghead:

Lmao, nah, went on a group ride tonight with some locals, first time I've ridden with other people in a long ass time. Hit some rather dirty paved back roads and it chipped up the "Batwing" really good, lol!

That is great, a little helicopter tape works good too.

Thanks! So I've been told, but this was too fun not to do. I plan to make similar guards for all the leading edges of the bodywork, as well as the fork tubes
