Nice looking bike D-Rod

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - - body thoroughly used up, screaming WOOHOO!! what a ride!!

A Grrreat Big Welcome D-Rod to the Bestest Forum on th Web. What a beeeeauuutiful machine. Ignore all the comments about color. The color you have is the best in your own mind. Mines Blue and as far as I am concerned it is the best. Enjoy your new wing.

No matter how blue it may get, there is always a rainbow in the sky.
Blue is not the fastest color, but it is the prettiest.

Hello and a great big WELCOME to the best forum on the internet D-rod.

Great looking bike, I agree that is the tallest windshield I have ever seen on a bike.

That would be great for keeping the bugs out of your face at night....until you can't see through the bug splatter anymore......



Enjoy the wing.

Thank you for all the great welcomes. The windshield is a Tulsa. Mike says it gives him about 2 mpg more than the standard one. Since this is my first Wing, I didn't know it was too big. He did give me the windshield that came with it. Maybe I will try that and see what I like best.

don't listen to 'em on the windshield D-Rod, it looks just right to me. Same as the one I got, wonderful in the winter. Keeps the wind off of you and the rain just runs up the screen and over your head. Try it before you mess it up.

Great looking bike your wife found. Best color too, identical to my '94.

Hello D-Rod and welcome to this site from Toronto Canada. She must be great. So is the bike. The colour looks good and the windshield does look long but serves a purpose. Nice ride. Tony

Welcome from the "Greater Binghamton" area!

I personally wouldn't run a windshield that's too tall to see over. I want to see where I'm going in the rain, especially at night.
