3 shields.

A month ago I got the CB -2 shield "summer shield" As others have pointed out it gives the bike a sportier look.

I added it to the original picture I posted comparing the standard to a CB +5 h +3w. (Good ol 'doc clearwater told the +5 +3 looked like $#!^ in a polite way of course)

The pix are not in the same order , sorry.

Anyway, Standard BMW shield, +5+3 CB clear , and a -2, 0 dark tint.

It seems the top side view is shown with the shield in the "up" position, while the other two side views are shown down position......no?

Out of curiosity, have you tried to motor the CB +5+3 shield up and down at freeway speeds? I have a friend with an LT who has some type of "barn door" shield, and he can't raise or lower it above 40 MPH.

I have never had problems with raising or lowering the shield. Have I tried at 100mph+, no but I would feel confident that I had no problems at 80 mp
