The people who bash have just as much right as the people who praise!
What makes either side more right? Nothing!
I have no use for that monster fairing. Just this weekend it would have gotten absolutely trashed. I was chuggin along on a 4 wheeler trail and misread a crusted over mud area. Sunk right in and stuck. The only way out was pull it to the right and up about 16 inches to dry surface. Faught it for an hour and half trying to drag it on it's side up the small slope until I got it out. The front side guard popped out, but never broke and took some new scratches, but none the worse. The 08' fairing would have been absolutely trashed, no question.
The difference between KLR.1 and the KLR.2 is that fairing will look terrible all beat up where the KLR.1 it just adds character. The off-road places that I have available all have trees and brush hanging over the trails. My current fairing takes a beating because of it, but it doesn't matter. The 08' is larger and wider and will take more hits no question. I just can't seeing that huge fairing looking acceptable all scratched and abused.
No, I don't stand around looking at my bike, I ride it. But, that doesn't mean I would enjoy seeing that nice pretty fairing all screwed up and having to look at it day after day.
