Hello from Minneapolis

Suburbs actually - I'm Lynn. I've been riding for a few years and have owned many bikes - dirt, cruiser, standard, and sport. My favorite bike for the last few years, the one I've kept is a Yammie '97 YZF600R - it just plain fits and feels good. My latest acquisition is a '06 Honda 919. I love the naked bike look and the ease of oil changes (no plastic to deal with).

I'm poking thru the threads looking for info on windscreens and hard bags. I have a Honda screen on it now, but I'd like more for long distance trips. And I'm darned tired of tying on the soft luggage.

If anyone has info, feel free. I'd love to hear what you think. I'm considering the Motech mounts and the Givi E41s but they seem to look so wide from behind. The F-16 windscreen seems to get mixed reviews - will it be better then my current screen? I'm 5'4".

Thanks!
L.

welcome!!! i have the f16 fairing and i doubt it is much better than the honda screen. But it looks good. As far as wind protection maybe look into one from spitfire. It does not look as sporty but does its job well.

I think that's the same screen I had on my very first cycle - An '84 Honda Magna V30.
