F800GS Windshield

Hi Guys,

I'm looking for an F800GS owner or three who wants to test prototype Calsci windshields. There's a moderate amount of work involved, but if you cooperate with me you get a free windshield. If you're interested, drop me a line.

I would really try to make your version as angular as the BMW GS wind screen available right now. I think that all of the "rounder" lines of the aftermarket 800GS wind screens that are available for the bikes don't keep the "look" of the angles of the 800GS. It probably costs more and is harder to mold...however the angles make the BMW look like it fits with the bike. Just my $.02

angular windshield

I have seen, somewhere, a company in England??, that makes a windshield like you want. It has the same straight lines like the shield shown.

Sorry I cannot remember where I saw it while surfing around. An English site sticks in my mind....what is left of it!!
