Badge of honor.

Here is a pic of my RGC back in the stable after a 1280 mile weekend. Went from central MO to Sioux Falls SD and back. ImageUploadedByMO Free1372738097.924777.jpg

I was wearing a half helmet with oakleys. To be honest because of the airflow from the Madstad I only remember being hit in the face with one bug. Needless to say I am a big fan of their shield.

I get VERY few bugs past my MadStad. I don't care where they go, but they don't hit me so it's all good.

They go all over the front of the bike! It's going to be a pain to clean but it was a painless ride other than our asses.

I put on a 13" Madstad, have it at the lowest possible setting and now I never have to clean bugs off my face shield.

I didn't intend for this to be a Madstad fanboy thread! Haha I guess they are just that good.
