Post pics of your after-market windshields please

Well, I'm nearing a decision on an AM shield and given the widely-varying reports of success and disappointment, it's probably going to come down to aesthetics and to a lesser degree, money.

So far, I'm liking the MP screen the best but I'd like to see some "real-world" pics of any and all AM shields on a 'Strom. Some of the pics the vendors put up are too close so I can't really tell how their shields look in the overall context of the bike.


Thanks,

Martin

Skip buying new shields. Go get MadStads Adjustable Windshield Mount. I have turned into an evangelist for his product.

Mine was $5 in a can of spray paint and some automotive door edge trim.

30 minutes of marking and grinding, then some sanding.

No more buffeting!

That looks really good...geat job!!!! :wink: But now...you just get allot of clean wind in your face. Am I right or wrong, in that statment?

Guess I am lucky, I get next to ZERO wind in my face, or head bobble with my Givi. Also, almost NEVER have to clean my faceshield either!

Really nice work though!!!!!
