MikesShields Touring Model Demo log

Ok here it goes. I am sending out a slightly used touring model to ZRimaging on Monday. This will be up to you guys to keep track of where it is and who gets it next.

Maybe get in line on this thread and discuss the logistics of getting the shield shipped from point to point. Or just PM each other, what ever works.

If and when it gets to the end of the line I will be more than happy to pay to have it returned to me, just let me know when that happens.

Oh and if some of you tinkering guys play around with shimming it to tilt it back or forward post up your results. I have not had time to actually play with one in that regard.

Good luck and may the force be with you.......oh wait wrong forum.

Thanks. Whoever goes second (not sure if there was a dibs for second already) just PM me your addy. Might take me a week or two to test though as it is nothing but rain in the forecast, and my 'rents house burnt down, so they blocked my bike in with their stuff.

I just got the package today, I think. (I'm at work, package is at home.) I'll be installing it tonight, and will use it over the weekend. Whoever is second (and I'll go search the other thread and see if I can't start a list) will need to PM me their addy and I will ship it out Monday.

Mike, were you insuring the package? Just want to kow so I can put the same level of insurance on it if you are. And by wrong forum, I hope you didn't mean the 'tex.... god that place scares me.

Add my name to the list. Whoever's before me, PM me when you're ready to ship it to me.

MN_smurf, it actually started in another thread about a different screen.

I have ridden a few miles with it, and all I can say is, WOW. The air hits me just at the top of my helmet, which doesn't bother me. Now, if only my mirrors didn't tag the side at full lock.

I'll have to clean it up, but I should be ready to send it Monday to whoever is next.

Never mind, it was CheesyRider that wanted on there, but he already bought one.

So.......

On the shield will go.

Mike, you do have a customer in me, I'll be placing an order soon. Thank you for doing this!

No problem and thank you. The store is closed for a week or two while I catch up on orders and take a mini vacation. The local vendor also ran out of tinted material and that put me way behind. I should be able to open the page back up for orders late next week or the following Monday.

Haven't heard back from Did_Have_Cars yet. I feel it would be nice to at least give him until Wednesday before jumping on to the next person. Do you all agree this is fair?

Is there any way I can be added to the list? I am definitely interested in purchasing a shield from you Mike and would love to try it out first. This is the Touring Model going around correct? I was looking at that as a maybe a permanent shield or getting the Grand Touring and switching it in/out with the stock depending on what kind of riding I was planning on.

Yes! Got it just in time for MemDay Trip! Just a little weekender from Minneapolis to the Apostle Islands, Bayfield WI.

I should get some bigger nylon washers since the holes in the shield are a little big for the stock bolts.

I'm also pleased to say that full lock clears the hand guards on both sides in top position. (i've got these)

I'm 6'3" and I haven't decided if I like the new air yet from the small amount of riding I've done around town. I'm def still in the air flow sitting upright, wind hits me at just above the visor.
