One of these things is not like the others. Lol. Rode to work today and thought my muddy 690 looked funny next to the polished up cruisers.

Sweet set up, Dave! How do you like your lynx fairing? Looking seriously at one for my bike in the near future. What lighting options did you get?

Thanks John !  I love the fairing.  Not obtrusive like some of those 'rally' fairing.  The windscreen adjust-ability is awesome.   I did spring for the 2 HID upgrade for the Lynx.   I also added (2) 3600 lumen LEDs from ADVmonster.   Let's just say I have PLENTY of light now :)

Awesome, that's what I was hoping to hear. I'm not a big fan of the rally full fairing on the 690, so I'm happy to hear the lynx is lovable. Lol. It's the only windshield or fairing I've seen for the 690 that looks good to me and seems like it would make a difference on the highway.

Thanks for the pics and reply!

I think it looks way better then the rally fairings, and lighter too.  The windscreen comes WAY up too ! It works very well on the highway.  I don't think those rally fairings barely do anything for the wind.

cool...let me know when you want to spend more, I have a whole LIST of things for ya ;) 

oh, and do NOT get the LEXAN headlight protection, get the BLACK grille ... the Lexan gets messy quickly...and just looks shitty compared to the grille.  I originally got LExan, and switched it out.

I just finished doing up my '14 with Evo 2 tanks. So far enjoying the extra range!

Oh nice! I wish I had the expertise to do that. I don't know much about upholstery. I'd like to make one that is more friendly for 2 up riding, most of the aftermarket seats look like they're made for one person who sits slightly rear of the center of the bike. Lol.
