Put a cafe fairing on.

I found the fairing on Kijiji (like Craigslist) for $50.00 and attached it to the forks using p-clamps like the ones below.



I couldn't find black bolts and nuts, so I tried painting them. They didn't stay black very long.

Looks nice. Like the way it wraps the headlight. Better looking than the Superfly Mini Shield.

It's a Maier Large Round Cafe Fairing. It does relieve *some* wind off the chest, but it doesn't eliminate it like my 21" fairing with lowers did on my Vulcan. If you want that level of protection you'll need a big shield. I'm happy with both the look and the protection it does supply. I can also put a plastic bottle in the right side and it doesn't fall out. I just drove 75 miles with a bottle of Gatorade tucked in there.
