That's been my experience with the Vstream spirt touring version also. I wear a Shoei Gt Air with earplugs and it's noticeably louder than with the Puig racing screen. Other than the noise I really like it.My taller Vstream seems to focus engine noise right at the helmet more than the Puig or OEM. I normally ride with earplugs so I don't pay much attention but without them I can really tell. Engine noise becomes predominent with with the Vstream.
Also I wear a Shoei Neotec flip face helmet, not the quietest helmet.
I have a Shad system on the bike, side cases and top case! Love them so am anxious to see how it feels with the high windshield.Good to hear.
yeah my son even said it was ok as long as I did not put a high mounted trunk.
We have a ongoing family joke about all the trunks I have added to my bikes all 71 of them over my 70 years
Glad you good with it. I agree, not that bad of a look. Pleasantly surprised with the nice pocket this shield creates along with the little extension.I just received my vstream touring shield today. Took it for a short ride and it seems to work as advertised. I'll get a better idea in a few days when the rain passes.
It is slightly noisy but not any more the the vstream sport touring screen i use as my everyday screen. It doesn't look as bad as some make it out to be either.
|Volfy, did you see the post, on facebook, where the guy has a trunk like yours? It looks very similar. Anyway, he was upset because his subframe bolts failed.|
The added stress of the trunk caused them to loosen. At that point, the bolts were cut in half. For this reason, it's probably a good idea to tighten them, or check them, on a regular basis.
I would add a link, but theres about zero chance I'm smart enough to add one for facebook. All I added were these pretty lines?.....? Sorry
