Fly Screen Recommendations

I ride a New Triumph Speedmaster 2007. When I first got her, I thought that there was too much exposure to wind blast at the chest level....made for very tiring riding and lower back pains. But thanks to Stephen Sleddon, I now have one of his most excellent Fly Screens....just enough to break the wind blast at the chest level, but places the helmet in the free stream for ventilation.

I liked them so much that I bought three....one for each of my New Speedmaster bros.

Roadster

I have the big Triumph Roadster screen. It does cause some buffeting at 70 plus mph. I understand lowers corrects that problem. I can't imagine less protection. I used to ride a Norton and had to put a fairing on that bike as the constant wind pressure hurt my neck. Now I see over the screen and am well out of the wind blast.

I purchased the dart flyscreen from newbonneville.com. Had it on in about 10 minutes last night and immediately noticed a difference. It deflects the wind to your helmet, which, if you wear full face, is just fine. If you wore an open face helmet you might not enjoy that too much. But it's a great solution for me and it actually looks hot on the speedy. I don't like the look of most windshields, especially on a hot rod like the speedy, but the dart in a tint looks pretty badass. Fits the bike well and is functional enough to warrant the cost IMO.
