Your New Orkin Man
After a year of riding with the 919 I decided to take off the OEM windscreen to see how it was. Not sure if I prefer it off at all. The reason being is the sheer amount of bugs that I now kill a day, if fact Orkin has made me an honorary exterminator. It looks like I have gone on a personal vendetta against every flying critter in CO. My reflective vest is nearly brown from bugs and guts.
Some of you have posted the OEM screen made the wind go straight to your helmet. I donít notice any difference in the wind buffeting my head at speed at all. I notice more wind hitting me in my chest now at lower speeds. 65mph and its hitting me hard with the windscreen itís not till 80mph. I ride at 65-70 for 60% of my daily commute so this wind is a problem.
I agree I like the bikes look without it but, I also like it with it on when it is painted black. I am going to Wallyworld tomorrow to get a can and see how it turns out. However, has any one tried another spray color other than black and have a good result? I am thinking maybe of going with red. Which Krylon Red matches a í07? But if it doesnít work good old black will do just fine.
