I've bought a couple pair from Dave Quinn. Good service and price.

Heinrich 2-Piece Fairing

This is a pretty cool fairing I had never seen, before. Wrapping over the front of the fuel tank, as it does. I found the first picture on Advrider, doing a search for Heinrich stuff. https://i.imgur.com/4YckFKKl.jpg Then I saw where Blue Moon has a $et for $ale!!! ($4000...) https://www.ebay.co.uk/...

Re: PICTURE OF YOUR BIKE/BIKES

But you still have that luscious handle for lifting the bike onto the centerstand! That was one of my favorite features of the K bikes. The 79 R65 has a poor centerstand design. I rode mine for 35 years. I am going in for my 4th bi-lateral hernia repair next month. I am pretty sure that keeping my b...

Re: PICTURE OF YOUR BIKE/BIKES

I really like that R-H sidecover! Looks like something Airbear might sew up!

Can I assume that there was not room for the same on the left side?

Re: Take airhead to Europe?
