Screens

Hello,
Just bought a 2006 Bonneville. Really needs a screen for anything over 90kmph. Any recommendations?

While you wait for some replies, have a look through these threads found by searching for "screen" using the "Google custom search" on the top left hand side of this page:

For shorter days at highway speeds, you'll probably get used to the wind blast. I remember my first days on my Bonnie when 40 mph (64 kph) felt like too much wind. Now 70 mph (113 kph) is fine.

It can get exhausting though, so for multiple day tours I use this Memphis Shades Hellcat, which is attached to Norman Hyde M Bars.

I like the Triumph summer screen. It is low enough to be unobtrusive but big enough to keep that blast of air off your chest. There is some buffeting, so you might look at something else if that kind of thing bothers you.

Your height will probably be a factor as well. I don't do a lot of highway riding, but I'm 6'1", and the Dart Flyscreen is also unobtrusive (I like the way it looks). It easily takes most of the work out of being behind the bars at speed.

I really like the Triumph summer screen. Still wind in my face (was a dog in a previous life) but keeps the wind from blowing me off of the bike at 75MPH.

I'm 6-1 and have found the National Street Srceen EX to be a nice compromise between looks and function. Tried the Parabellum Sport Shield but found it just too big and unsightly. The nice things about the National is that it is on and off in about a minute once you get it set up. Everyone has their favorite.

Have a look at at Nation Cycles Flexifairing GT.
I live in Darwin and am waiting for one more pay before ordering one.
Not to keep the cold at bay, but so that I can continue riding during the upcoming wet season, and for longer rides so that I can relax a bit more without having to hang on without being blown off.
I live and rode in Tassie for years and know what the weather can be like.
Its a faily big screen, but is all clear and doesn't look like it should detract too much from the bikes appearance. I think being clear (or slightly tinted) and without the solid fibreglass or plastic of a fairing with screen helps it to blend in a bit more rather than turning the bike into a wannabe jap touring/road bike (which I think ones like the parrabellum do).
As Chris mentioned above, they also go on/off very easily - under a min ute, so can be off most of time, but quickly added when needed.
I am yet to find a pic of one on a boony, but will add one here if I find one, or when I get mine - probably another month or so.
Available on-line from US for around $200. Have been quoted a little over $100 for postage.
Hope this helps - cheers.

Oops - I meant Plexifairing (P not F).

Heres a link: http://www.nationalcycle.com/catalogue/fairings.html

Also requires a small fitting kit - about another $15 or $20

I have had quite a few screens myself now . I like RedBirds best

You pays your money and makes your choice . Lets hope the cost isn't the deciding factor or you might not be happy after .
