Moose Racing Adventure Windscreen?

Bought on EBay, not yet installed. Anyone have experience with it. Very cheap ($67.00) and seems to be substantial. Replacing a CeeBailey that cracked at the mounting holes. Tips on avoiding this?

Thanks.

The bad news is that depending on which screen you got, you might have gotten it cheaper at some place like Revzilla. The good news is that you'll probably love it. I just got my tinted shortie from Revzilla for @ $40 and I love it.

i was thinking of getting one of the tinted shorty for those hot days instead of riding without windscreen at all.
i like the feeling of riding without windscreen in city commuting and going to/from work or school within city traffic but that upper front looks kinda ugly-ish without a screen

I had a Givi on my bike before I put the shorty on and everyone pretty much said they like the looks of the tinted shorty better. I use it with my Madstadt bracket. Standing just over 6'1", I get very clean air from collarbone level up with the shorty. I have also ridden with it on the Interstate wearing my Arai XD-4 and surprisingly, while I obviously get wind hitting my helmet, the wind does not seem to want to rip my head off or make my head turn unpredictably to the side. At first I thought that any wind on a helmet with a peak would be a constant battle, but I am now of the opinion that it's just buffeting wind (not clean air) that's the problem.

I had a $50 gift certificate at revzilla. The shield was 49.95. No better way to spend it imho.

PURCHASED!
