COPYCAT!!! J/K.thumb up Looks great. Keeps the wind off the chest nicely.
Way awesome!!!! I will try to control myself and not purchase the fairing but damn, looks outstanding on your bike Dr. Derp. What kind of wind control do you get...no, don't answer that because if it is good, I may not be able to control the urge to buy the fairing for my bike...

vortech , its probably just me , but I like the look of the angular headlight poking out a little in the front , it looks tough .thumb up
I don't know, I tend to agree with Vortech. I think I have the factory head light from my 06 black Hammer, I think, if you are interested in it Vortech, and it would probably be best if I get rid of it or I will be doing a Dr Derp mod on my bike as well. I am just not sure I have it as I sit here drolling over Dr Derp's set up. Wow, both bikes look great!!!!

I'm with you-I think it looks good except for the headlight. I'm going to order a new headlight from a 13 Judge. It should bolt right up with no issue.

Dr Derp's setup looks real nice-real nice.

Garandiver...I love the wind protection on my chest. No buffeting at all, and the wind hits me just above the shield on my helmet. I'm a pretty short feller, so I'm sure it would feel different for a taller person.
I had this set-up on my last bike (09 VN900 Custom), and will continue to put them on any bike I get until I switch to a touring bike.

Well thanks Dr. Derp. Now you got me looking the web at the price for bullet fairings...I didn't need that. My wife already had a kitty over the purchase of the trailer to long haul my bike to cool riding locations. If my bike shows up with a bullet fairing while I might not feel the wind on my face and chest, I am going to feel some heat from her wrath and have some chilly nights to boot. I must be strong right now and control myself. After all i need new tires...she won't notice those, I suppose. But you have a beautiful bike!!!! Enjoy the ride.:confused:

Sorry bud. Had to tell the truth. I guess I don't run into that prob with my other half. She knows that guns, bikes, gadgets, and such keep Dr. Derp calm and happy.
That is a two way street BTW. She's got plenty of junk too, but nothing as cool as my stuff!:ltr:

group buy?

Alright garandiver. I say we get a group buy together. I doubt it will save us a dime, but it just seems easier to explain to the old lady when I say "...group buy for a better price...":D

Today the headlight from a 2013 Judge came in. It required just a little bit of wiring mods to work but other than that bolted right up.

I think it looks better.

I like it, but if it were me, I'd find something to fill in that gap around the light. But that's just me. The air flow coming through there might be kinda nice. The Judge must have a 5 or 6 inch headlight, and the older Hammer had a 7 inch headlight.

My thoughts exactly-so I flipped the headlight bracket around to move the headlight forward and flipped the fairing brackets around the move the fairing closer to the headlight-mission accomplished.

Now I think it looks perfect. Shame the old Hammer headlight doesn't come in black.

Now just need to install my dragbars and wait for the Lloyds cams to come off backorder.



Last weekend we cruised out to Wasaga-my first cruise. I tell you-it was cool watching all the folks stop and stare at the bike-even the Harley guys couldn't help but notice.
