My new mid-size windshield from scooter parts direct came in Thursday afternoon. I installed it this morning Sat, and promptly went out for a ride. it helped that it was mid 50's today. Took a nice at least one hour ride.
Thanks to all on helping with the mounting help. In the end the pictures were more help than the instructions. After I got started it really was not to hard to figure out.
Now on to the review.
Pros: Greatly reduced the wind hitting my chest. This was great less wind, longer saddle time.
My hands felt toasty also (remimber mid 50's) but we shall see on the next cold spell.
My speed felt. easier, quicker, not sure just might have been a mental thing.
It was breezy today, and I really did not notice the "sail effect" I hope that remains the same.
Cons: The noise inside my helmet was more intense/louder. I am gonna have to get some ear-plugs.
I got to get used to looking over the screen, and not try to look through it.
My left pinky hit the windshield a couple of times. I can not bend the front knuckle due to an encounter with a knife. I will adjust how I ride to handle that.
All in all I really like it. I give it a 8 out of 10. One point loss for lousy instrustions, one for increased noise in helment. Very glad I bought it will continue to evaluate as time goes on, Beale.
