    I'm only small, I stand on the seat. I'm a Smurf. But Smurfette and her girlfriends call me big boy all night long.

    Did removing mirrors help?

    Removing the mirror made no difference unfortunately.
    I also tried fitting a clip on wind deflector on top of the RG screen but that didn’t work either. :dirtdog

    I SAW yours that you cut off. Looks pretty good but I’m looking for more protection from the wind.
    Rade is working with me to see if we can solve the issue by trying some different angles etc.
    Very nice guy to deal with and if we are successful I’ll post what we found.

    Coolio! Be very keen to see any further RG developments...
    I still do like the clean wind in my face on the slab as it really helps clear both visor and goggles when wet. And, I don't mind bug splat.

    With my cutdown version, it relieves the wind pressure off my chest but has my helmet in clean wind blast... I never ride fast :)

    With a forum name like “braaap” I’m sure you never ride fast. :photog

    I'm also keen to find out what helmet you use since you are close to my height.
    I unfortunately haven't had a good experience with mine but also love the look.

    Anyone with the Rade screen and a 10 inch tablet wish to do me a favour? Can you place the tablet on the upper edge of the TFT and snap photos in both landscape and portrait orientation. I'm trying to ascertain if I can mount a 10 inch tablet with the extra room the Rade screen affords. TIA.

    Now my last bike was a Modded DRZ 400S with no screen so what might not seem bad to me might be a lot to you. Im not a professional reviewer ..

    Well that’s convenient, you can just run the tablets camera so you can see :D


    I’ve never had a bike w a screen, so I don’t think I’m picky. It’s just a lot of turbulence for me in the wrong location.
