Default 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.

It looks good. How much wind does it block? im looking at windshields now.

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.
