I've thought about it, and have talked with Reckless, they are located in Tennesse, they make a nice product, i would probably go with them.

Reckless is the one I am thinking about. It sure would be nice to see some pics of it on a nomad 1700.
Going to look at a voyager tomorrow. Dealer said 5900 plus my 2011 nomad for a new 2015 voyager its pretty temping.

I ordered a Hoppe Industries Quadzilla fairing for my 2011 Nomad. It mounts using the stock windshield mounts. 180W of music through 4 5" speakers is gonna be SWEET!
I shall upload and post pics as soon as it comes in and I mount it to Celestia.

My new Hoppe Industries Quadzilla fairing came in today.

Wiring it in and mounting was pretty simple, though I should have hooked up the remote to the fairing before mounting. Turns out to be a job best done with three sets of hands. Cause you're gonna want someone holding up the fuel tank while you route the power cable under it. Then you want two people holding the fairing in position as you bolt it into place. But once all that is done...


All that was left was mounting the windshield to the fairing, and mounting the remote to the right handlebar switch. (Actually, it mounts to the mirror mount on the brake assembly, but who gives a $#!& about minor details like that lol) Looks bloody good, and sounds excellent. (photo taken before mounting the remote)

Son has a Reckless as well was on his 09 when he bought it. It has the 6x9's and a rockford fosgate amp installed. Looks good and sounds good.
Only thing I noticed is the fit between the inner and outer fairing halves was not great.

The fairing looks pretty good. Any plans of painting it the same color of the bike?. My bike is the color as yours.
