Of the 99 prototypes I've created, this is the only one that really works. The windshield is a leftover from a BMW R1100RT. I look over the top about 4", higher than a normal street bike. The wings are too big and put too much air up behind the windshield and need to be trimmed.

The next step is to try and get some of the ugly off. It comes off in 2 minutes with an allen and wrench. In the future it will have thumb screws.

I wear a flip-front HJC street helmet. I don't need to wear ear plugs for the wind noise anymore. BUT, the tire noise, intake noise, chain noise, cam chain noise is now much louder and I have to wear ear plugs for that.
