    That is an outstanding deal for someone ! I have one already it makes the dog twice the fun to ride. It'll keep most in the saddle longer.

    good deal but windshield on a K-9 is just a "Oh, hell no!" in my mind.
    I don't even like them when I've been on harley's.

    For those of you about to mention rain and their benefit -- I have a second face on sheild for my face that is just fine when its inclement weather and is much smaller to stash the rest of the time.

    I don't ride in the rain, but it made a huge difference in the wind resistance on my chest while riding.:chopper:

    well, I still am the only biker I know that when I got my first bike (bmc 918st chopper) went and deliberately got himself caught in the rain! Waited at the titty bar till it was raining then left and I knew when I pulled in the rain was coming.

    No, it was a choice -- I knew that getting caught in the rain was inevitable so I decided that I was going to control as much of the situation the first time in the rain as I possibly could.
    Was on the way home and knew rain was forecast for late afternoon.
    Stopped at a titty bar about 10 miles from my parents house where I was storing the bike in a custom cap on my ford f150 pickup.
    I waited for the rain then left.
    this way for my first rain experience, I was on roads I knew, I was close enough to home that had I chickened out or had issues I could easily call my father and have him bring my truck down or at least get me and I could got back for bike easily.

    I thought it was a good idea to learn under as much of a controlled envirament as I could.

    Much like when I bought most of my NEW cars -- test drove them in rain or snow. Almost all cars handle well on nice dry roads, how it feels under adverse conditions is much more important but most people don't find out for extended periods of time then its too late it they don't like it.

    Big difference between a situation I know is going to happen vs a house fire that I hope doesn't happen.
    You know if you really ride at lot sooner or later you get rain, why not learn the handling under controlled circumstances.
    There's no "extra" downside unlike a house fire, you're losing the house.
    Here the risk was the bike/me when I had more control than an inevitable situation where I also might have had a passenger before I ever really hit rain!
    My buddies riding skill 2 up increased after we got caught in a hail storm and his wife and to tell him "Forget that I'm on the back" After he did he handled that better that day and overall he was more relaxed when she rode with him.

    If I can learn something where I am in as much control of the situation, I prefer it -- Much like in the IT field -- new OS or product -- first thing I want to do is make it go wrong -- easy to just use it, fixing it when it goes awry is the trick -- and that's not the best time to try and learn what to do from scratch!

    :hi: I was just being my usual smart ass self there Mike. I wouldn't wish a house fire on my worst enemy. I too have ridden in the rain, (without the benefit of rain gear), and know what its like ta have water in the boots ! 50 years back, when I was a kid, I rode my little 250 Yamaha year round, Sun, rain and snow. I got a healthy dose of respect for caution at an early age, and haven't lost it yet . Stay Safe Buddy:old2:

    Understood -- it's one of my pet peeves-.
    You take a training class but they skip a bunch of real world shit
    riding in rain -- yeah they talk about road and oil on road, but its just talk till you do it -- and the rain hitting you in the face they don't even try to warn you about.
    The second thing they skip is the proper way to pick up a bike. Again, you know at some point you are going to have to deal with this. I know so many people that worried about this. One of my best friends had been riding longer than I knew him and got a softtail deluxe and at one point looked at me and said "I won't be able to pick this bike up" and I was like what are you talking about, of course you can pick up your bike, didn't anyone ever show you how? Taught him (verbal only) As luck would have it, less than a month goes by and we aare on a run and Squeal, smoke -- drop. By the time it took me to walk up the hill to check on him, he was up, so was the bike and he was in disbelief that he could do it.
    Told my GF how to do it -- She goes riding with a long time friend of hers. The dude has a nervous breakdown on the trip -- drops the bik on the blueridge parkway -- As she describes it -- all she heard was my voice inside her head telling how to deal with the bike.
