smoked vs tinted windscreen
Am unsure of proper etiquette here in that I've posted this on the vstrom.info forum as well, so apologize if this is unnecessary duplication . . .
Am pondering purchasing a smoked windscreen but wonder if visibililty is an issue at all when going on rough/dirt roads. As I was making my way along a rough road this last weekend, avoiding ruts and such, I noticed more when I transitioned from looking ahead and over my stock clear windscreen and then when I was looking through it closer up at ruts and such (going very slowly). Visibility difference there, though slight. Would a smoked screen make it more difficult to see through such very close up obstacles when they go from clear visual above and beyond the windscreen to looking through the windscreen? I've never used a smoked screen, so don't know . . .
Thanks in advance for your feedback! m
