    '85 K100RS Front fender

    I always thought the front fender was kinda 'frumpy' and the gators didn't help. So I decided to do a little whittlin' on it.

    That looks great, Dan! It does make the bike look more sporty. Hey, how do you like your Laminar Lip? I put one on this past winter but havenít been out yet for a ride.

    I really like it. I took the adjustable foil out after it encountered a humming bird head on and broke the anchor tabs. If he was doing 90 and so was I, that's a respectable closure rate. A loud band, an explosion of feathers and this poor little guy starring at me, wedged under the foil.

    The lip lets the air flow much better over my 5'9". I could never get the airfoil to do what I wanted and saw the Lip, had to try it. Heiss Gut.
