    This is kinda sad, indeed. Way before I realized that is was a Berg on those beautiful pictures and that you were the guy who took them I had pictures from you as wallpapers on my notebook, the Berg from behind in front of a water crossing being my all time favorite!

    That said, here's the question: did your windshield ever give you the impression that it might want to leave you? Isn't the drag from behind a bit too much for those nimble OEM rubber strings that fix the upper windshield mount to the fork (assuming you did some intermittent highway miles at speeds above 50 mph)? I had a similiar design in mind but then developed second thoughts :-/

    This one has been on my bike for years and stayed put although it does move around some. It sees 70+mph every time I ride it.
