anyone??

After you take the headlight fairing off there are two nuts holding the light in place in the framework, you should be able to loosen those to adjust the headlight up or down some. The left to right you already found, has the spring & bolt type adjustment.

As requested by Sequoia, I couldn't find any branding information on the windshield but I can measure it if you still want to know more, here are the pics:

This may not be a question specific to Super Sherpa but more of a motorcycle newbie question but where do you guys keep your registration/insurance info? I figured there'd be a compartment underneath the seat or something, but I guess not.

I have a tank bag and the lid of it has small mesh portions that are zippered up with req.papers, maybe the owners manual,
And it's ready easily I know.if needed
I can furnish the papers without any toolkit be involved

Man I like that windshield, it looks about perfect in size. Only I see know that it's curved & I already have a piece of aluminum mounted to my plastic for an additional dash & one like that would just mess things up for me.

Yeah, I didn't even realize it wasn't stock 'til I started going through this thread.

I guess wallet makes sense for the papers, it's only a couple of little slips of paper. Thanks for the tips.

I keep the papers (including the Key Number (should I need an emergency replacement), extended warranty contract sheet, and passport (when needed)) in one chest pocket of my Olympia Motosports Patton 3/4 jacket. The chest pockets are waterproof.

If you're on a ride it's a good idea to just put your wallet in a ziplock bag to keep it dry.

I took a photo copy and keep it in a ziplock bag in the tool compartment.

I fold mine up nice and flat, insert it into a ziplock bag and place it into the lining of my helmet. This way I am never stupid enough to go out without my helmet, registration, or insurance.

Many Thunders.

My registration number is on the plate on the back of the bike. My matching registration label shows when the registration expires. In Australia, only the Northern Territory, where many cars have only one registration plate despite being issued with two, requires us to carry registration documents. Now if only VicRoads (think DMV) could grasp that unlike cars, most motorcycles do not have windows, and issue registration labels where the glue is on the back, not the front. Heck, they issue boat registration labels with the glue on the back.

Third party personal insurance is part of the registration in my state, if the bike is registered then it is insured.

Property insurance is not compulsory here, so there is nothing to prove; if I have a collision (or for that matter, if I cause a collision without being hit, such as running a bike off the road) I am required to stop and exchange details. I may choose to give insurance details at that point, or the other party may make a claim against me, allowing me to decide later on what action to take, whether to reject the claim, pay the damage myself or pass it on to my property insurance company for them to deal with.

I am required to carry my driver's licence when driving, which is a convenient credit card size plastic card.
