Looking for pics of MP Cycle Design's sport touring screen

Gearing up for my trip to the Dragon in September. I've got MP's 14" shorty screen right now and am thinking with a 3000 miles or so trip coming up i may want somthing bigger. Never had a bigger screen than the stock Suz screen so i'm a bit iffy about that tall of screen. And with now being unemployed i don't want to buy somthing i won't like.
My searching has just turned up 2 pics.. and they are both side shots only. MP's site just has the one pic of it.

We are getting ready to move here and getting our house ready for sale.. so i'm pretty busy.. to be searching for more pics... so sorry for being lazy... just thought this would be much faster. i hope anyway.

Thanks

It seems huge to me! But i guess its worth a try and i'll probably only use it on long trips... Pauls got a money back guarantee too!

Here's the MP shield I use for long trips or cold weather. It's a 22" and I also have a 19" for shorter trips. When I arrive, the shorty goes on and the luggage comes off.


Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Hey thanks. I got the 19" sport tour with the painted bottom.

I think thats what i'm going to do. I got quick release pannier mounts and i'll already have too much stuff on the bike.. might as well throw a 14" windscreen in the mix. I'll see how this screen feels to me when it gets here late this coming week.

Going to test out long distance riding for the first time. So with a Russel seat, this screen and a audiovox cruise i won't be able to complain much i dont think! Well without feeling like a sissy anyway.

front fender

I like the way you did the front fender on your wee. looks more useful especially with knobby tires and going off road. Asthetically, it looks cool too(imo). just wonderring how you did it and what fender you used.

Blue 2002 DL1000 ("Blue Suzi"); A few essentials, a few more to go.

Thanks. It helps tremendously with mud build up that will easily and very quickly stop your front tire from turning with the stock fender.

The original thread is here:

https://www.stromtrooper.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=22717

I went through some different fenders and bracket versions. Final version to clear a fork brace is on page #6, post #60
All info is in that thread.
As well as other members fenders and mounts to give you other ideas.. etc...

Stromin'Nroman has my old one and doesn't seem to be using it. MP is out of business.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
