I think it looks kind of weird BUT it does work. It moves the wind blast from mid-chest to right over my shoulders, making higher speed riding more comfortable. Also, unlike some of the other Laminar Lips, it bolts to the fairing and is not Dual-Locked (hard core Velro) to the existing screen.

I've also tried the K100/1100RS and K75S Laminar Lips and found them to be not very effective so I'm kind of surprised how well this one does.

Thanks. I just figured that out and was looking at their website. I'm actually looking for something to improve the G/S tombstone flyscreen.

Of course I also lurk on brick threads just cuz I often find myself thinking about needing one

Keep thinking all you want, but if you ride one you will realize you do need one.

S is a different part. (And fairly worthless in comparison.)

K100LT with my grandaughter (her first MC tour trip) on a 3 day camping trip. Picture at Lochsa Lodge on US 12. Fun road and a fun bike.

That's terrible, I hope you were able to walk away from it. The brick looks totaled.

I did't even had a scratch on me. Nothing.
The bike is a TL indeed.

Terrible what happened to your K. Glad to hear that you faired better than your steed. What happened?
