My windshield solution. Pure blasphomy...

3000 miles on mine and it works suprisingly well:

Was there a bong involved in the construction of your new windscreen?

Have you ever owned or wanted to own a KLR?

Laugh Love it!

Many of us who did the Cabo 1000 ended up with spare face shields on the stock windscreen- this was back before Zero Gravity was making any of their double-bubble or sport touring windscreens

Kudos! (love the black tape)

did that top box come off your Honda SL350? Nice, and metal too- authentic

that said I always like people who don't give a shit about how their bike looks- as long as it works!

You are awesome! I have lots of little repurposed bits on my bike, but you are the Kung-Fu master. I apparently have an aesthetic line I'm not willing to cross, you rode over it at 80 MPH laughing! I love it! Keep it up.

I dig the eyebrows on the windscreen. That is a touch I would have left out/missed. Sheesh, they're even functional!

Thats really wrong but - its just soooooo damn cool.

I like your "way" to get a good solution - ahm form follows function.

Really different and really nice

Greetings

cause you can steal an entire roll or two with ease most post offices have it sitting out away from the counter...


don't ask me how I know this

Helios - no, and no.

geometrician - Thanks. I was going to leave the USPS tape on there but it was just too damn fugly. The top box came from the deep bowels of my dungeon.

kirb - USPS tape is strong.

viola-tor - I found the aesthetic line I'm not willing to cross, after riding for 2 days without the black tape. The USPS tape was just too much.

TTRider - Thanks.

nevermind - It's function over form for me every time! More proof is the closable vent shown here:
