So i convinced my wife to let me have my birthday present now even though it's not till the 18th next month. Installation is very easy as long as you remove the mirrors of course. :icon_lol:







It makes the 40+ mile commute to work a lot nicer without the wind blowing under my helmet! :toothy4: I'm also hoping to see a little improvement in gas mileage since i've only been averaging 39-40 MPG :(

I don't expect much but i read about people getting 40-45 MPG on there bikes and i ride almost all highway on my commute to work, yet i still only manage 38-39 MPG. But i'm 6'5" and there is no way i can get completely behind the stock screen. That's why i'm hoping with the double bubble i can get more if not all behind the screen and cut down the air resistance.

And if you payed attention in high school science class you understand how aerodynamics and air resistance effects efficiency :icon_lol:
