Thanks, Dave. I just might take you up on that. That is if you have that CT off by now. :biggrin:Big difference Ryan. Stop by my place some time and I'll let you ride the 1500 with the shield, lowers, and highway bars with chaps on them. Heated grips is the only thing I'm missing.
Well, for the record. I don't care about the cool factor. I just don't like the way they look on the bike. Nothing more, nothing less.A HUGE AMOUNT. DO NOT RIDE IN THE WINTER WITHOUT ONE PERIOD!!! Being cool (sic) is meaningless when you're freezin yer butt off.
Not to nitpick here, but on the other side of what these other posters say, I think it depends entirely on how you're decked out.
If you've got full gloves, FF helmet, layered clothing underneath a good leather jacket and chaps, the windshield isn't going to help very much. The only thing it will do is deflect some of the air that hits your neck where the FF and jacket meet. If you wear a turtleneck (I know, I know...how UNCOOL!) under the jacket, that's very very minor.
They don't have that one for the 900. Not really my taste, but I appreciate the link.There are other options than shields. Corbin makes a small fairing that may be more to your liking. It is called a Trim tab.
Personally I like the one on my LT. I am thinking of getting a full fairing in the future.
As a side note. At 32 degF, and 60 MPH, the wind chill is -5 degF. Brrrrrrr.
High snot factor.
