Due to the large radiators, tank, fork, and other parts, I find the wind blast to be pretty low. That said, I do not go real fast and I wear a full-face helmet. With the heat I get here most of the time a breeze is nice.

I have seen a picture of the tall windscreen and it looked ridiculous. I would be very interested in seeing how the boulevard screen looks.

I'm not totally constrained by fashion but I have to draw the line somewhere!

Je trouve que ce qui fait la classe et la beaute de cette moto, c'est quelle soit naked, sans pare brise ni sacoche

Short Windshield, works surprisingly well, keeps the wind buffeting of your chest. I'm 5' 8"

That looks pretty reasonable and even a little sporty!

How is it held on? Do you have a side and back picture?

Thanks!

PS - Ever notice that from a straight-on side view the headlight curves into the chrome tank hump? Very cool looking IMO.

not bad, thanks

That is about all I'd want, I think, for a windshield.
Thanks for posting pic.
I test-rode one last weekend (without windshield), and I too found the windblast to be less than expected.


My biggest surprise on the testride was that the engine heat didn't bother me. 20 minutes riding with temps in the 90's, and it never was an issue.


thanks for the informative posts, and responses, all...
