And yet another iteration of the double windshield configuration to be tested today.

Touring screen mounted on front of sport screen with sport screen in low position, touring screen raised up and forward about 1 inch such that its lower edge extends beyond the upper edge of the headlight and even with the bottom of the sport screen.

I'm beginning to feel like I'm tilting at windmills (windshields).

Obviously my posts are a personal record of the different configurations and results for my future reference.

Tested yesterday on a ride to the Hopewell National Historic Park in Ohio (free admission, museum with burial artifacts, recreated 22 mounds on original sites).

Double screen does better in the high position.

While the double screen adds weight, the lack of buffeting makes the bike more aerodynamic and probably get better gas mileage.

Added winglets to the trailing shield and air management even better.

Adjustable winglets may allow use of the double shield even in hot weather.

Will have to wait to test that one.

You're quoting yourself and then linking to your own thread and then that thread links back here but there is still no picture.

This is really confusing.

All of it.

See picture at the link listed in post #16 above.

It's just a thumbnail.

Point and click the thumbnail for a full size picture.

Sorry for your confusion.
