Sold the 1998 Triumph Tiger and picked up a black manual Africa Twin on Friday. The day involved a flight a ferry and 170Km ride home. I need to work on the wind protection around 100Kph and above my helmet was getting buffeted pretty good.

Nice. I'm 6' and was surprised how well the windscreen worked compared to my Buell and Aprilia with their large after-market windscreens.

Welcome OU812,

I saw your bike sitting in the showroom at Courtenay Motorsports!

I have the exact same bike as you, same colour, etc and have been having a blast on it the past few months.

Small world !

How long have you had yours and did you get it from Courtenay ?

I have known Scott and Stew before they moved to the island they get all my business. I gave them a deposit October 24th and wasn't expecting one until the spring less than two weeks from deposit to delivery.

I did see this on youtube and tried holding my glove over that area while riding and it didn't make much difference if I duck a few inches the buffetting stops so I might try a taller screen or an extension / lip thingy. I have a helmet with a peak so that probably doesn't help.
