    For those considering Madstad...

    Just got an email from Madstad...they're having a 20% off sale (Black Friday)...use code "SUBBF20" at checkout. Link to Madstad:

    Not for me, but might help someone who's...

    I'd say an RT would be more in keeping with your mission profile. I don't ride in bad weather, so - yeah - I guess the stock shield would be problematic if you do. My bad...[:)]

    Let it sit for winter if you're in a cold climate and can't ride. I put mine on a Deltran battery tender (not a trickle charger), put some Star Tron fuel treatment in at the last fill up (and be...

    Well, the true definition of the GT is "sport-touring", so the screen is about right for that category. I've had two GT's and one ST, and the screen issue occupied more of my time than is...

    I've gone to the "mitigation" route, rather than the "elimination" route, when it comes to wind turbulence and noise. The OEM screen "almost" works for me, and I can go a couple of hours with it. ...

    Nothing wrong with playing around at 6000 rpm or higher. Those vibrations do exist, but I'm only at 6000-7000 rpm for short bursts. It's good for the bike...blows out carbon or whatever...and too...

    Above 5000 rpm...you're right, Chris. There's a section of tight twisties in the mountains that I ride that really put this bike in its element. Keep it in 2nd gear for short fast sections, then on...

    Went over 6500 miles on the ODO on this ride. I'm finding these bikes really start to break in when you hit 6000 miles. Lots of punchy torque in the twisties with the rpm's up around 6000-7000. ...
  9. Just when you think the riding season is over

    Mother Nature relents and hands you a gift. Beautiful day...got in 150 miles in the mountains. A real bonus to the riding season...and the next week still looks good! Thanks, Mother Nature...[:)]

    Windscreens and military boot camp have a lot in common. You get to boot camp from your civilian life, and many are unprepared for the rough ride during the first month. Kind of like getting a bike...

    I'm fit as I can be...seriously. But if a product is a square peg that requires insertion into a round hole, even a fit body can develop a spasm. It ain't me, Chris...it's the Madstad. I get that...

    I did try it, and didn't love it. That doesn't mean it's "bad"...just that I didn't care for it. To be truthful, I thought it looked hideous and created too much heat.

    Good questions, Chris. To be honest, I think it's down to a couple of factors - one, the quality of my earplug seal and, two, how calm the winds are. Most of my riding is in canyons, where even a...

    Man chases windscreens...and God laughs
