Did you roll this outside your house and take the pic before you left? It looks pretty dry for a snowy ride.
Thanks,
Rolled it out side my house,LOL. About 30 miles outside and 4000 ft up

I do the same thing and been married 42 years, so no trade in on her. About 20K on a bike and I'm ready to try something different and bikes are cheaper that changing wife's

I just made the very same statement to a friend the other night. Too funny.

Took a nice ride today in the lower Sierras (about 5,000 ft) from Reno to Loyalton and Portola to avoid most of the sand on the roads. It was a nice warm day around 65 Degrees so not cold. Bright sunshine and a great bike. We did around 180 miles. It was comfortable and the tall windscreen did the job quite well. No dirt today as there is a lot of snow around and the trails are not easily accessible.

Madstad owners, now is a good time to post pics of your bikes with the screen removed.

Great idea!

Anybody ever use the MRA touring screen? Yes. it looks out of place. Yes. it may still be too big, but it looks like the rake is pretty, well raked. Thoughts?

I'll use the standard shield all the way back with the Triumph adjusters. Works great for me right now. Installed it yesterday ...
