I remember back in 1970,I bought a brandy new Kawasaki, Mach I,triple 500CC two stroke.It did not come with a windscreen but was capable of speeds in excess of 100 mph.The very first time I took it up to 90,I remember my fore arms feeling like they were gonna break.So over the next few days,I shopped around for a windsceen which I finally bought and mounted it on that machine.What a difference.Since then,I have never owned a motorcycle with out one.Once was enough.Not that I drive like a nut,but "IF" I happened to get up to that speed again,I was protected,not to mention the rain and the bugs that always hit ya in the face, which at speed,HURT.lol Dave!!!
