That lip at the edge of the windshield looks awesome. Adds to the good looks of the XC. Great choice - based on looks alone. Now if it reduces buffeting too, then you're a winner, my friend. Ride safely.

i have their standard 2 inch flip and it's just right for me...looks great adn it is entertaining to see the bugs hit the wind stream then...pop up and over...still get a snack or two on the determined (hard) ones...all in all seems a good shield to me.

Well heck Diamond! I guess I missed the thread where you got a nice Cross Country! I thought you just had the JP.

Yep. The recurve shields do make a difference. Not to say the standard shields aren't good because they are. I used a recurve on my dresser for a while and one day when moving it; it got away from me and the shield hit the work bench and broke so I put the Memphis Shades shield I had on there before that and it worked just fine.

Glad you like it and nice red XC!

OOPS Sorry guys. I'm visiting my Mom in Portland, OR for her 81st Bday and doing some fast moderating. This is actually a post from CC Victory. He posted in the wrong forum and asked me to move it. I could not move it so I copy and pasted not remembering it would show up under my name!!! LOL

I usually just click on "Active Topics" to see what anyone is posting about recently.

Wow! 81! Don't tell her but those are the numbers for the Hells Angels. (H is the 8th letter in the alphabet and A is obviously 1)

You must be a little past the spring chicken part of your life now too, Diamond, if your mom is 81. Please give her our best wishes and wish her a happy B-Day from us too!!

What's her number? I'll call and tell her about her illegitimate grandson that's really a motorcycle named after her. That oughta make her day, eh?!

She'll probably say: "Son; what is this stupid man talking about? A Porti-Cycle?"

Buffeting ELIMINATED!

All right, maybe not 100%, but right around 90-95%.
I had the pleasure today to go to Gustafsson Plastics Inc. in St Augustine, Fl. They let me try one of their Euroflip shields (11"). I currently run a Cee Bailey 11" shield. What a world of difference that little flip makes!! I wanted a shield that I could see over, thus the reason for the 11" but the Cee Bailey still caused buffeting for me because the wind hit my full face helmet right above the closed shield.
The Euroflip 11" moved the airflow to the very top of my helmet.
So I decided that I wanted it just slightly taller (so I could still see over it) and ordered a 11.5". Leif Gustafsson said it'd take about an hour to make and would I mind waiting...ummm Ok.
I got to watch John rough cut the acrylic, finish it to their CC windscreen form, buff the edges, and place it in the oven. Once properly heated, he pulled it out, placed it on their template and formed it to the finished template. Slick!
The finished product (in clear) worked even better than I hoped, air flow goes over my helmet, I can still see over it while leaning back on the backrest, and I can hear the radio!!
So two thumbs up for a great product, and if you live in the Northern Florida area, drop in and try 'em out. The rest of you will just need to call. And by the way, it's a two man shop, so don't be discouraged if no one answers the phone...they'll get back to you quickly.
btw, I'm 6', 200lbs, 32" inseam and run the Victory lowers.
