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 :cool:

See...all you needed was enough time to convince yourself it's the right thing to do. We were waiting for you.

:p:D

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! :bom_smoking:

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.

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. :D 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. :p

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.

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:

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.

The closest short ones that you can still buy are the expensive Euro sport one from the UK (Suzuki brand)

Also the little Moose racing tinted one. The zero Gravity is a but taller but still sporty.

I actually ended up getting the Calsci tinted shorty. I decided I like the width of it down low for body protection and it blends with the front headlight fairing curves. That is very subjective.
