That looks to be close to it.. this one looks to be more of a Bat Wing.

Even has the side mounts for our turn signals.

I like it too.. it said it was the upper fairing.. I can't find the whole thing anywhere.. wondering what it would look like with the lowers too....I am thinking .. drop the rear end 2 inches.. add the hard bags I just won on Ebay and this fiaring.. slick!

Yea, it does look a little different, but since the overall design of the pockets seems about the same, I thought it was the same company anyway. Way too expensive for me to think about buying that lol. The one from the pic you posted does look better though

OK, this batwing does look somewhat better than the Hannigen fairing link that Ceal posted. Both of them look to be a frame mounted fairings, which I don`t think I would like because it creates more "sail" for a crosswind to catch and push you down wind.

If the "sail" effect of a fairing or windshield when it is fork mounted, is in front of the steering head, it will tend to turn the wheel downwind, and self correct your direction by countersteering the bike back into the wind.

For a more complete explanation, read David Hough`s article on this topic in his first book,
"Proficient Motorcyling- The Ultimate Guide to Riding Well."
