How about a fender mod?

I photoshopped a bmw front fairing onto a vstrom. I think it might work...

I like the way the bike looks as is, but your BMW hybrid version is also very cool. Good job!

That looks great. I bet it would be fun to try to fabricate it all together, though :shock:

My brother thinks his GS's lights are terrible. I know my Vstrom lights are excellent. Although I i like the beak, I wouldn't sacrifice the night vision. (Wait... maybe I would for better wind deflection. Hmm)

I think it looks great. Someone out there must have the talent to build something similar.

Negative Ghostrider....

The GS has terrible headlights and the beak does nothing. I am not a huge fan of the V's front end but it's better than the GS by a long shot....

Just not my cuppa tea I guess....

im with you. what good is an expensive Farkle,when the wind still beats me up.
if i came up with a fix of some kind (for the wind),,,id love most of that front end. but not to be a copy cat,,some mod would have to be done so its not a "GS WannaBe".

could the vstrom headlight be kept,,and still some kind of nose thing? if i was good at photo shop,id play with it. but im not


sighhh..roy
