It certainly does look to be mounted to the bars. The angle of the screen is in line with the bars (slightly turned) and not with the bike. That is what make very little sense to me. The bottom of the standard VFR screen is fairly far forward and low on the nose of the bike. I would think it would look very odd from the front with a bar mounted "Cruiser" screen. Really interested to see how the front of that is arranged.

I met a rider this past weekend with a newer model. 12XX cc's if that helps. What a beautiful bike. Definitely on my short list should the time I need to upgrade.

Here is my other picture. Screen looks even bigger in this shot and the bars have serious rise. Not exactly sure where the mirrors are mounted...could be the fairing with extenders.




For comparison my stock screen & bars and Y2K mirrors with extenders.

I put 300 miles on the bike Saturday. LSL bars are starting to feel more normal. Also, the Puig sport touring screen was worth the money. It fixed the buffeting I was getting from sitting up higher in the wind.

Thanks, Twohondas. I'm biased, because I owned one, but that generation still does it for me.

Thanks, it gets ridden a lot around the mountains and dirt roads of WY. Here's some pics of one of my more common day trips out by my house. It's a simple little loop of about 30 miles, but it's fairly remote and quiet and I enjoy the serenity sitting up on the moutain looking out over the prarie.

Those RWB anniversary bikes are just sexy!

What seat cowl is that? Looks like it has storage built in.

That looks like an Axio tail pack. I have one for mine, and it weren't for the need to have the top box for my laptop when I'm commuting, the Axio would be back on. A little pricey, but a great way to add storage that does not detract too much from the bike's looks, either to augment a tank bag or (if you hate tank bags as much as I do) instead of a tank bag.

Headlight Issue

Noticed the headlights AND highbeams were out. First assumption was the fuse, which is fine. I've read about an issue with the starter switch but figured I'd ask here before tearing into a switch, which is a PITA. 6th Gen with 32k on it, everything else seems to be fine.

Correct, it's an axio tailbag which happens to match the color pretty darn good. Sorry I missed the question back when it was asked.

Looks like the whole screen attaches by brackets to the mirror mounts. Hideous setup. Cant imagine what the combination of the "come to jesus" bars & the aerodynamics of house do to the legendary VFR balance of that poor, mistreated 5th Gen.
