    As in it was made out of a bucket, duh. I'm tracking now. I... uh... searched for bucket windshields and all I could find was windshields for hot rods lol.

    +1. From this angle it looks like a Screens for Bikes shield.

    I have a clear one on my DR650. They come in all sorts of colors. It mounts directly to the headlight number plate cowl with machine screws and rubber spacers. It works pretty well, directing most of the blast at the upper chest and helmet (5'11" tall) but leaves the helmet in a somewhat smooth flow. I wish it was adjustable and perhaps a little taller/wider, but it works well for what it was intended - taking the blast off most of your upper torso. I was able to do 4000 miles on my DR in 11 days in November with only a duffle on the seat as a lower backrest.
