Anyone create a NAKED DL 1000 ?

I am thinking about making a V-Strom purchase.
I LOVE the engine.
Not in Love with the "looks" of the bike.
Has anyone created a naked version of their DL 1000 ?
If so , can you share some photos and your experiences ?

PS -- i don't spell or grammar check in most cases, but props if you can use my quick typing to debunk the factual foundation of my arguments!!

1/2 naked?

How about 1/2 naked?

I think I'll call it Frankenstrom.

That looks okay. Kept the real headlites and added the little lites to the forks, look like the Blazers I have.

Its a short term thing. I hadn't ridden for a week and, even though I was still in the middle of my wiring project, I threw the tank back on it so it was mobile.

Ya WW, I think they are similar lights to yours. I picked them up at Canadian Tire. Only concern is that they are 55w, but as you mentioned earlier, they take those MR halogen bulbs which come in a variety of wattages. Also wired my heated grips and 12V power outlet.
