Is that old gas station in Jefferson, TX? Looks like the one down the road From Diamond Don's where I have done some vintage racing.

Probably a Marc Parnes Visual Alert, or equivalent.

Got the last BLUE 2012 at the dealership (didn’t want the 2013 white or grey)
Have the panniers and top box as well as the heated grip ordered.
Now looking at which tall windscreen to get. Any ideas?

Indeed, it is a Marc Parnes "Visual Alert" module...

Makes a radar detector truly useful on a motorcycle without a ton of noise.

Yes, Fred... It is the ol' gas station right down the road from "Diamond Don's"... right at the road juncture there in town in Jefferson.



And I just *KNEW* Pluric would like the pictures of the grid girls from Mudville USA!!!

Congrats on your new ride! You'll love it.

IMHO, the best windscreen is the Parabellum... And that's from experience with the stocker and a CalSci...

Just my two centavos... YMMV.

Congratulations on your new bike.
Mine is a Powerbronze and I like it. Have it on an adjustable bracket from Touratech though.
