Dragon Pics

Here are some pictures of me on The Dragon, taken June 7, 2010 by zeefoto.com and us129photos.com. In the 3rd-to-last one, you can clearly see my vn750.com radiator grille cover, and in the last one you can see my VN 750 license plate. Pretty cool.

Garage
the fairing is a discontinued Fire and Steel Fairing. they are highly sought after, and only available from private sellers once in a great while.

The fairing came on the bike when I bought it used. It was part of the Touring Package, which also included the floorboards, front fender, dresser bars, and hard bags. I have almost the entire set, except for the bags -- mine are Givi. The Tour Package was discontinued by Kawasaki several years before they stopped making the VN750. I am one of the lucky ones to have it. Dianna also has it, including the Kaw hard bags.

Pieces of the Tour Package are pretty rare these days, although there was a complete fairing and lowers on craigslist not too long ago.... here:

BTW, if anyone happens to buy the one on craigslist or finds one elsewhere, I have all the instruction sheets for all the pieces in PDF format. I can send them to you.

$100 ?!?!?!!?

I would have jumped on that in a split second if I had known. I now know what I need to look for. thanks.

and do the floorboards cause you to scrape in corners any more than the pegs? they would be nice, but not if they would be more scrape prone. I like my corners.

I've scraped the floorboards several times, but it's no big deal. I guess it might be slightly more likely to scrape than the stock pegs, but not enough to worry about it. But they are even more rare than the fairing. Chad (Hawk) makes some that are real nice, but not quite as nice as the real Kawasaki ones.
