    New Farkles 2008 R1200R

    All,

    In an attempt to extend the comfort range and the potential riding season of the R1200R, I fitted some new farkles to my bike which include Wunderlich hand guards, a 22'' wind screen for the Parebellum Scout fairing, MRA X bolt on wind deflector, and a Sargent premium foam conversion.

    I thought I would share for those of you considering the same additions and wanted to see them fitted to the bike. Enjoy.

    A job very well done in that it's functional, sleek and simple.

    I usually don't comment on how individuals farkle their rides, as I appraise motorcycles professionally and I can honestly say I've seen a number of god awful machines that in the eyes of the owners is is the best thing since sliced bread. To others, Good Lord!

    Thanks guys. I think its hard getting the R12R to a point where it makes a comfortable/competent tourer without making it look like a disaster, but I am amazed what you can do to this bike to get it to fit your needs. I took it out for an hour ride in low 50's yesterday and the additions worked amazingly well to keep me comfy. Also anyone considering the Sargent foam conversion, do it. Such a difference over stock in looks, feel, and comfort.

    I just wish a company made a more modern looking fairing than the Parabellum. I like it, but it doesn't quite fit the bike in some way that I can't quite put my finger on. Now for some bar ends and I think I'm done...
