    My buddies are on a trip from Salt Lake City to Yellowknife... actually on their way back now (I'm stuck at work in HI). Just out of Yellowknife a tip over at the gas station resulted in smashing the windshield on an R1150GS. Any help in acquiring a replacement would be greatly appreciated... New, Used, etc...

    They are planning on heading west on Hwy 1 towards Laird River then southwest on 7, then 77 - 97 and back around to Fort Nelson - Dawson Creek... see route map.

    Any help from the inmates garage collections, or just a list of potential dealers would be helpful.

    Thank you very much.

    Stitch it up Frankienstien style with wire and thickened glue or 2 part JB weld this is what I did in Panama when a buzzard hit me, the repair lasted all the way back to Canada. Salt Lake is only 1500 miles or so, he could just ride home with no shield:D

    If they go down 97 there is a BMW dealer in Kelowna

    Thanks.. He gets home today... just rode it without the shield - calls it "old school".

    I appreciate the comments and recommendations.
