I was going to say the same thing.  Never seen one in person, but in pix it looks good.

I made the "cut" modification to the vent slots in the fairings, also.  But it is very difficult to get the fairings  on/off without removing the cages.  It is like a 3-dimentional puzzle from hell.

maxtog,

I though the same the first time I removed and refitted the cowling with out the cage but after a few times it got easier,
 
With the cages on the entry angle changes so the old way of fitting them  does not work, you also have to manipulate them a little to get the slot overt he bar of the cage.

Try loosening off the bottom skirt (grey Bit) this will give a little more room down low, sit on something low along side the bike, I used a 20 litre bucket and just slip them in, it's hard to explain but once you have it figured they go in and come out easy.

I will say that the left side is easier than the right side.

Cheers

How often are you all having to remove the fairings on the Connie?

I have been trying to figure out what that is behind the passenger section.  I really like the green.

I thought it was either part of his stunt cage as a place to put his feet when riding wheelies, or where he puts the tow line when pulling skateboarders.

Its not a passenger back rest, I ride solo.

Its for my gear sack, and because I do not have much of a work shop and do not have a welder I made it out of angle and bolted it together like Mechano.

Its not flash but it does what I need it to do, Maybe next year I will have something professionally made, at the moment its not in the budget.

Cheers

As long as it works for ya. I'm sure that it looks much better with the gear sack covering it.    ;)

Well I can say for a fact the Canyon Cage does its job at 30 mph. I was leaving work today and was taking a turn at around 30 mph and was beginning to accelerate when the ass end came out from under me. The bike went down hard and fast and I instinctively pulled my right leg out before I went down putting my palms up and dragging my knuckle protectors on the asphalt while kicking the bike away from me. The bike did several 360 spins on its side and came to rest with the tires in the gutter. I do not know what the slimy crap was I hit but it smelled really bad and looked and felt like slime. It was covering most of the road way and I when I saw the goo I was already scraping my toe in the turn while I was rolling on the throttle so it was too late to do anything but ride on through. My protective gear had my body covered and all I suffered was a nice sized goose egg on the side of my shin. The Connie doesn't have a scratch on her and I am amazed the mirror came out unscathed! Ryan thanks for the cage and thank everyone involved in the making of it. I would hate to see my repair bill if I hadn't bought them. They have without a doubt just paid for themselves!

Again thank you!

Man that is awesome! I don't mean the accident of course but surviving it with minimal damage to you or the bike.

That line is getting old now, ZG.  You are just in awe of the greatness of the stock muffler, that's all.  Size envy....

Nope, that line isn't old yet. Or rather, it's only old to the folks who still have a potato launcher.   ;)
