Installed my Dart tonight; it completed the look of my Thruxton.

First thing I did when I bought my Thruxton was to remove the fly screen. I think it looked silly and the less plastic on a bike the better IMHO.

I'll have to agree it's a nice addition and makes the freeway rides much more comfortable.

The only downside I've noticed is now I can hear all kinds of rattling around inside the headlight bucket. Pretty sure it was there before, just that the angle of the screen is perfect to reflect sound that was otherwise hidden...right to you ears.

Haven't taken the trim ring off to investigate for loose bits inside, but with winter setting in, it's certainly prime season for checking.

There is no denying that the flyscreen with lowish bars improves the comfort of a Bonnie at speed. Big, baggy coats contribute to your wind resistance, too. Consider a jacket with a trim cut.

I am 100% satisfied with my Dart flyscreen. At 5'11",it directs the airflow over my shoulders and helmet well and reduces wind buffeting enough to satisfy me. It looks good on the bike also. Does not disturb the classic lines of the Bonneville much.

I very seldom put a wind screen on but for long cold trips I use National Cycle's Deflector very adjustable easy to take on and off.
