Congrats on your new scoot. Love the blue. I just switched to a Clearview with recurve 8 inch, light tint for my ultra. I'm 5'8" and it does push the air up and over my head. Also, I like looking over the top of the windshield. Had a 10" OEM shield on before, like this one a lot better.

In the Spring I will be regularly visiting, for a few days at a time, areas of NC. Never been there before but from what I find there is a lot of great riding in that area and MapQuest shows most areas I want to see/ride are only 5-7 hours from my house. Perfect!

Pics coming soon--was just about dark when I got home yesterday.

Louisville Joe

Congratulations....enjoy the bike - RIDE SAFE

I keep hearing good things about them. They are definitely beautiful. Congrats on the scoot, may you have many, many happy miles.

The object in life is not to arrive in a pristine well taken care of body; rather it is to slide in sideways, body thoroughly used up, a drink in one hand and chocolate in the other, screaming "That was one HELL of a ride!!!"
