New Windshield For My Bike

I know there has been a few posts in the past about Mike's Shields, but I thought I would send along pictures of my Versys with the Sport Model. With the addition of some 36 cent screw covers, I think the set-up is quite nice. The wind protection is better than stock, but I was really going more for looks anyway......

That looks good Lee. Do you know if it would fit the '11 V and could you give me supplier contact details? Thanks..!

Zed, I'm almost sure that it won't. Our headlight clusters are different, but Mike may be able to adapt it. At $40 you can't beat the price. Here's his website: http://www.mikesshields.com

I'd did the same as you Mack and I liked the look, but I wanted something a little different. BTW, I can tell you are a better painter than me.....

I actually didn't use paint. I used several coats of the spray lens tint. Did one coat and let it dry for an hour. It took about ten coats but imho it was well worth it. No drips or anything.
