I can't justify $200 for a windscreen that I can fit in my damn pocket.
I have this on my SV and paid less than $90 shipped.

Gonna schedule a ride on the Tenere anyway just for a reference point.
New '13 Teneres are going for $11,300 OTD in SoCal. Leftover '12s are going for under $11k.

I saw the description and said "daamn!" (200hp, ohlins all around, 342 lbs. dry...)

Then saw the estimated MSRP and said "daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamn!" ($65k)

If you think one round headlight is fun, you should upgrade to two! (not my pic, unfortunately):

Thanks, checked the site, no FZ6 listed.


I found maybe 2 or 3 different windscreens and they're all in the $180-200
range, and tiny (which I like), but I paid $100 for a screen 4 times that
flyscreen size for my Kawasaki 650R years ago (MRA) and for $180 I
got a screen for my scooter that can be used as a surf board!

I can understand the money involved there for that much material and
shaping, but NOT for a freakin' fly screen! Someone posted a "generic"
chinese screen that he bought for his SV650 here, like a mini fairing around
the headlight and the screen, it was like freaking 20 dollars!



Sorry, rant over.

What bike do I want today?

This one:


What?!
I'm in my 186mph+ mood!

I love how comfy the 'busa is. But every time I ride one I'm doing triple digits just going through the gears and not getting in a hurry.

It needs some kind of engine crippling mode like the one Mopar uses on their Hemis (MDS) where it runs on 2 cylinders til you hit WOT or something.

Or, I just need to not ride them.
