The perfect windshield wiper. Rain does not bother it, I can see over it, Fog does not stop it, a big truck throwing mud and water does not bother it.

And it just looks cool. Kit

The 1800 is my bike. The very best motorcycle ever made. I was enthralled with my first test ride on this machine. It is a great bike. A crotch rocket with storage bags.............As for oil I use the slick kind, and I like round tires, but as of late I have found square ones work best on the rear. Pirelli Eufori 195/55/16 @ 32 PSI

Interesting thread. There are a lot of things sold and added to motorcycles that at best are questionable and in a lot of cases actually not legal. By law I am required to see the road fifty feet in front of me over the windshield. Personally I don't mind because I set my bikes up that way before I knew it was law. Simple thing but "safety" comes before everything else for me. I actually like to be able to see the road when it is foggy or raining and dark. You might want to look into the legal angle where you ride. Might suprise you. Oh yeah. I also get real tired of getting on bikes with the tall windhields and hitting my helmet or sometimes my face on the top edge. Food for thought. B

A wiper would be very useful. I don't like tall windshields either and like to see over mine.
