my plan? get frame sliders that are 18" long, mount them forward and low so they can double as foot rests. Then make a throttle control mechanism (ie. cruise control), and BOOM! you've got a nice highway cruiser!!!
What brand sliders are those and do you feel they will do the job of protecting the frame? Fairings are no inteded to be protected anyway, so not worried about that. IF worried about fairings, get a set of sharkskinz and store the factory ones.
