Whatchya think?

I just put on my new windshield. Givi A755, got it for $30 from some lady who dropped her bike so it has a few scratches but no big deal.
I really cant decide whether I like it or not... I will leave it on for my trip to Florida next month and then decide whether to keep it or not.



Tell me what you think!

(sorry the bikes so filthy...)

goes well with the bike, but just a little big for my taste. I have the F18 shield though. leave the screen on until you get back from Florida. You will appreciate it on the open road. Mine too the pressure off my midsection, but put it all on my head and shoulders.

Its so dirty because its the only vehicle I have and as much as I would love to clean it every time I ride I just cant. And Dan and I rode about 100 miles today so I have some road gunk going on...

To be honest I wasn't looking for a windshield really... But that thing was sitting on Craigslist for months so I figured what the heck... cant go to wrong for $30.

I really wanna take that thing for a spin!

I like the looks of it and don't think it looks to big. Except the exhaust where is all the dirt? Mine is in the garage and it is probably has more dirt on it. Have a good and safe ride.

I like the looks of it, but I think I would prefer it if it was swept back another 15 - 20 degrees. That's the same thing I think about my stock windshield though.

Press Any Key To Continue.

I like it Bass. I did the same thing. Bought a Givi (A305 model for a 599) off ebay for $19 and bungeed it on for a while to see if I liked it. Its permanent now.

I really like it. I'm not sure why.

Oh wait, I have the same one. That's why.

It really is filthy! I have ridden in the rain twice since I washed it last, and one time was down Dan's dirt road and I threw mud all over the rear plastics, and the wheels and the pipes... That picture is a really good one I think, for some reason the bike just kinda pops and You cant really see much gunk.

And I dont have that many cool points to lose...

luke... the only time my bike gets washed or cleaned is when my son is in trouble and thats his punishment... funny you'd think mine would be cleaner... maybe i need to be stricter...

i took the rear fender off of mine tonight and tomorrow i will figure out the rear turnsignals before i run to tk919's for a surprise..... photos manana
