The barn door medium Cal Sci windscreen showed up today. Up to 80mph (courtesy of a very friendly or very apathetic county deputy) with visor up and NO buffeting and completely dead air. I felt for the sides of the air pocket (getting strange looks) and it's hitting right outside my shoulders, just over my head, and the little bit of air coming up between the fairing past the handlebars disipates before it hits my chest. It's adjusted all the way down and 3/4 back in the Madstad bracket. Only complaint is the top of the screen is right at my line of sight and it'll be in the way if I do any technical offroad but that might be fixed by adjusting it all the way forward and clearing the cockpit a little more. I think this is what a touring bike is supposed to feel like.

Obligatory garage door shot


And compared to stock


Going to do the reinforcing brackets that were posted a couple pages back to tighten everything up. There's a lot of weight and wind resistance bouncing off the little OEM windscreen mounts.

How tall are you? I am 5'10" with short legs, 30", but tall torso and I have the MadStad bracket and have been looking at the CalSci windscreen. Does the cut-out seem to be any issue? Also do you have full range from lock to lock without hitting the mirrors or other things?

Thanks,

Mark

I have a similar setup on my S10. The Calsci screen and the madstad. I don'thave any issues with full range turning. But the madstad, in my opinion, does put the shield out in front a little farther than the stock position.

If you are talking about the cat eye cutout, in my opinion I don't even notice it. It reduces the back pressure, but it suprisingly hasn't really been an issue in the rain either.

I'm 5' 11" with a 32" inseam. I describe myself as extra medium. Due to the cut outs on the side of the windscreen the handlebars have easily 2 inches of clearance at full lock. They might hit if the screen was adjusted all the way down and wall the way back, but that would be a terrible idea unless you like the idea of making a giant ramp shooting wind directly in your face.

As far as the cut out goes if you're referring to the one in the middle of the windscreen Cal Sci says it's to prevent suction on the backside of the windscreen. It sits behind my GPS and I felt for noticeable airflow coming off it and it felt like a vent, nothing substantial.

My only issue with the Cal Sci/Madstad set up is the Madstad bracket. It allows me to attach to much shit without enough structural support. But there's a simple solution for that.

I think that after your Morocco "Training Session" you will be out of my league (having said that and judging from some of your photos and videos I think that you were our of my league well before that!). However, if you would like to do some riding on what you might call "Tourance Trails" like these, I'm in!







I will contact you with some dates

Tires

Okay, I have searched, mulled over, meditated and had major brainstorm meetings in my mind about the tires I'm going to put on my Tenere.

I was really leaning towards the K60's...until I really had a great weekend of some of Oklahoma's finest curvy roads on the Battlewings...and realized how much I love running fast with it. But I also want to ride gravel, dirt, some mud and some sand...I'm still about 80/20 though.

Now the Anakee 3's are out...

I have read every thread on the web concerning the K60's and the Anakee 2's and 3's (not much on the 3's really out there obviously). It seems the K60's have a great following (I honestly don't care about how many miles the tires will get), I want to have a decent off road tire that won't let go on the pavement when wiping out the edges of the tires; there is a bit of contradiction concerning wet road handling with the K60's, too.

Now I'm asking for guidance here...crazy I know

Try a FullBore M40/41 combo (Rated at above 120MPH+) if they fit your bike. Works extremely well on my 800XC 150/70-17

Several of my friends have tried the Shinkos and they like them. I had K 60's put on last week for the Hillbilly Dual Sport in Arkansas and put over 400 miles of dirt and pavement on them. They handled well enough for me on the pig trail and the many twisty roads of Arkansas and Missouri. A little of the chicken strips are still there but I don't push my S10 like I would a crotch rocket. The K 60's on my Wee Strom kept me upright and no one had to wait on me. The K 60's make their money in the dirt, they do much better than than the Shinkos, ask my friends. They have ordered K 60's.
