Windshield

Nothing has been said about the windshield. It's low and has a V-shaped top edge, similar to K1600GT. Is it just a fancy design, or it's a new word in the evolution of the windshields? I wonder...

I used to have Motoport Air Mesh Kevlar jacket and pants, but sold both. Couldn't stand their look and armor. Bought Olympia Airglide jacket for hot weather riding. It's OK, but I miss chest armor.

Rev'it dealer in Checago

Does anyone know of any dealer in the Chicago area that sells Rev'it gear? I've been looking at Rev'it jackets and pants for some time now, but I'm reluctant to buy gear without trying it on first.
