Got a reply this morning from tgross@unifilter.com not good news I'm afraid.........

I'd be replying to that with "why not". And then point out how many people were in on the first group buy and that there are several people having to do the same right now. Finish up with "do you not want to make profits?" You never know, it might just wake them up.
Also, now that you've posted his name, all those people currently wanting one should send an individual email to him.

G'day BT, I should have replied thanking him for his informative and detailed response...

His details for all contacts are displayed for just that purpose, maybe order one from him... over to you guys.

While no where close to being as attractive as one of the replies, the Nelson Rigg UV2000 half cover is a lot more affordable!

I have that one - works just fine. It just about covers the Tigger with the hard bags attached and it covers the things on the bike I want covered overnight. I don't care too much about the bike getting wet - just means I can leave my sheepskin cover on the seat and my tank bag on the bike etc.

On the half-cover

Well, I have one of the former ones and it's a big PITA. It's too skinny, fussy to setup, highly demanding, requires multiple pairs of shoes, and seems to fly off all the time leaving the bike exposed. I wouldn't recommend one at all unless you just want to look at it.

Just Ordered

Just completed the deal on trading in my BMW 650GS for the new Special Edition Triumph Tiger XC...whoop!

Ordered the OEM Fogs, heated grips and engine crash bars.

Just wondering if I need the bigger windshield...thoughts?

Congrats on getting rid of that German rubbish.
You will need a taller, better screen but don't get the Triumph Touring screen as it's crap. On your side of the pond the Madstad seems favourite.

I wouldn't go with a bigger windshield. I'm 6'4" and I did the "Browneye" windscreen mod to mine. It on here somewhere. It basically involves drilling different mounting holes and lowering the stock windscreen.

It really cleaned up the air and buffeting for me. I would recommend trying this before spending $ on a different screen.
