I am in for lunch tomorrow at cafe 58. Not going to ride. Got 4" of snow on the road and doubt if the county will scrape it, and we get little car traffic when it snows, and I dont feel like getting the tractor out and scraping the 150' driveway (I usually dont plow anything under 8 ", the four-wheel drive jeep gets me up and down the driveway); I wont be able to get the bike up the driveway if I ride it out. I will just drive the Jeep Cherokee.

Windscreen thoughts?

I've been kicking around the idea of getting some type of windshield for my XT. I saw on the XT600 thread one these mounted on an XT (which would be similar to an XRL, DR, or ...).

Thoughts? 15" above headlight, I'm guessing top will be chin level or so. I would think something to knock the wind off the chest and look over the top would be better than a tall shield you would have to look through.



NewCrystal ClearSlipstreamer#S-06 Spit Fire windshield.
This little economy priced handlebar mounted windshield comes with a Quick Detach installation hardware kit.

Computer vs. phone

First time I've logged onto ADVrider on a computer in quite awhile instead of the phone, with tapatalk app.

The phone is handy, but can't beat seeing the full sized pics on a bigger screen.

I had basically the same splitfire on a little gz250. Good, low price windshield. The only problem is it is only a 2 point connection system and it does vibrate slightly at speed.

Jeez... I almost wrote "...in case I go riding ..."


I've read where people complained about the wind issues hitting your helment when looking over the top, but can't imagine it being any worse than riding w/o any wind protection, could it?

Did you look over the windshield or through it? I would think anything tall enough to look through (I'm right at 6') would look goofy and stand out more than a short one like this.

It can be worse when it causes buffeting, it depends on where the wind hits you and how smooth it comes off the windscreen.
