big ugly Windshields

so do you care about the way your bikes look? I don't really like the way the aftermarket shields look. I'm looking for comfort too but I think the front end is. It enough without putting a big ugly shield on it as well.

Smile Really big...

Actually, it's really huge, but it does the job really well. Hey, it's on a 'Strom, which isn't exactly a beauty queen anyway...

I like my Manta shield and don't think it is ugly at all.

Yeah I guess the bike is sort of not the Coolest looking thing anyways. I love my Wee! Just didnt realize til I saw pictures of all you old Dorks dressed like that, which I am also one, that we're not "wild hogs" or "sport bikers".Just how old are most of you "Wee" biker dudes?

Stock mounts..........The pic is in low position, I run Hyway in middle position. Works for me.

If you care about looks you've got the wrong damn bike.

I love the look of the Strom. Don't think it is ugly at all. Wouldn't have spent 7 grand on a bike I thought was ugly. Love the Wee.
