It's a Touratech screen with an MRA X-creen spoiler added to it. It was a great combination, the X-creen did a great job of eliminating buffeting and kept bugs from splattering on my face shield....

I've owned a few Sportsters, a Dyna Glide and now an Ultra Limited. I agree with most of the comments regarding the Sportster, at least for me it was just too small of a bike to be comfortable on for...

Thanks, I was thinking of heading up I-25 to Cody. I prefer backroads, but I think the interstate would be a bit safer if the weather is going to be iffy.

I don't like the spontaneous acceleration that seems to happen every so often. A few weeks ago the issue caused me to get a ticket for 109 MPH in a 65 MPH zone. Cost more than my 6k mile service :D.
