How do you like the ride without the windscreen?

Japanese scientists have created a camera with such a fast shutter speed they now can photograph a woman with her mouth shut.

Bob, here in central Texas, with 95+ temps the wind on my chest feels good.
I have now reinstalled the screen and have installed some KTM handguards for wind protection for the winter. We occasionally get a night where it gets below freezing.

Paul,

How do you have the fender extender attached? Also, is that an extender on your license tag? Did you find you were getting too much spray without the rattail? I am planning to trim my rattail into a point just like you did, but if you're getting too much spray I might rethink that.

I'm also planning to pain my side plastics black as you've done.

Great looking bike.

I used a auto trim adhesive tape that is sticky on both sides. The extender is a piece of thin ABS plastic. The plate on the back is a license plate bracket I got at the local dealer that had an extended tab on the bottom for the inspection sticker. I do get a little spray from the tire but no more that I got when the rat tail was present.
