Default Update 13" LRS Mako (pics)

My 13" light tint LRS Mako came in about an hour ago so now it's on the bike and here's some pic's. It's 31* and snow so I won't be taking it for a ride quite yet. One thing I will say about the windshield is, pictures don't do justice. In person it looks better on the bike. The top is 7.25" above the radio using a level. I haven't decided what trim I'm going to use yet if any. Thickness of the 13" is about the same as a stock windshield but doesn't feel flimsy like the stock shield.

Looks close to the size I'll need. 31 degrees is perfect to see if it really works, lol.

Default I tested it today 10-28-12

Believe it or not we made it to 60* today. All the snow is melted and there is sand in the intersections so I headed out for a ride on the Interstate. The bike loves the cool air so off I went running through the gears wearing my 3/4 helmet. Jamming down the Interstate at 75+ my helmet made no noise from any buffeting effect so I lifted the shield up completely and had no issues. I ran it up to 85+ and still no ill effects. Then I retracted my built in sun shade and there was no problem with air in the eyes. When I got within a mile of home I stopped at one of the interchanges removed my helmet, no hat or skull cap, slammed it in gear and off I went all the way to 80. All I got was nice clean air on top of my head, nothing in my face nor my eyes. I had no issues seeing over the shield and I was glad I got a light tint. I had to stick my head way out to the side to get any forceful air. I think a passenger will be happy with it.

I like it and its going to be a keeper.

Looks like a copy of my Windvest. If so it should work pretty good.
