testing the new windscreen

I took a ride this morning to check out my new Wunderlich wind screen. I love it. Nice ride on a rainy morning too. The specks just above the tank bag are some deer.

The tires are Mefo's. My riding buddy and I took them out the first time on our shake down run to AR and they performed extreemly well. To get to the fire roads in AR we each had to drive tarmac for around 350 to 500 miles and the tires worked out great. Good cornering and handled the rain like it was not there.
On the fire roads the Mefo's really showed their stuff. We did not run into a single situation that they could not handle; can not speak about sand since most of that was stuck down due to rain. Look at the RR to give you a idea what terrain they handled.
As a side note, I had a new set on the GS and he had a set with over 3k on it; both performed the same. I will put a set of Mefo's on my DR when the time comes.
