    Wow, fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.

    Yeah, beauty is in the eye of the beer holder, but ugly goes clear to the bone.

    Must have wanted more protection and put a batwing fairing on the Spyder.

    Careful it's part of a shadowy subculture from Japan.
    They go around terrorising leather seams at every opportunity.

    Back in the early Spyder days (2008/2009) there was a windshield manufacture on here from FL. that was starting to manufacture fairings for Spyders...He suddenly closed up shop and moved back over seas...I Can't remember his name or the name of his company but I had several of his shields on my 2008 GS bike...Each one I purchased worked better than the previous one and overall they were pretty good...There was a big demand for his shields after the production stopped...If I remember correctly he produced and sold several of his fairing kits for the GS bikes...I think he called them RT kits, this was just before the 2010 RT's came to market...I'm not sure they were quite as ugly as this but they were close...Surely someone on here can come up with his name or his company name???? larryd

    I think He was German and made some various parts for the early Spyders .... including a drive sprocket that would lower your revs in 5th gear .... it worked but, was made from alumin. and wore out fairly early ..... I actually bought one of His touring windshields, it had a re-curve at the top and worked quite well. He stopped production in 2012 or 2013 ..... Mike

    Maybe he found it on the side of the road from a Harley that shed it along with other assorted pieces that shook off?

    It blocks the wind. Look at Corbin and see the fairing they have. I’ll bet the owner had the bat wing fairing, needed more wind protection, and gave it a shot. If it does what he needs, great! So little competition in the fairing market for Spyders. I can remember Vetter fairings from the 70’s. We thought they were odd looking, too. Then they got on goldwings and Honda took notice. Now you can’t buy a wing without a fairing. Or an RT without one.
