FJ-09 windshield options

I have mapped out Lakeville MN-Fargo-Omaha-Des Moines-Lakeville for a Iron Butt Saddle Sore with stops every 130 miles or so.  
 
I also rode clockwise staying in Thunder Bay, Sault st. Marie CA, Baraga MI, then back to southern MN.  1604 miles.  The only thing the trip needed was a few more pull-offs to view the lake.  There were some spectacular views, only nowhere to jump off and "absorb" the scenery; part of what makes motorcycling so awesome.  Non-riders just do not get that part.  Ok, now I am getting really anxious to start riding!!!!!
 
By the way, your parking pic is a somewhat familiar sight.  I am an ER nurse and park inside our ambulance bay when the weather scanner reports "large hail & damaging winds"  Everyone freaks out "you rode your motorcycle? don't you know it's suppose to rain?"  do you think I want my car to look like a golf ball?  and that is what rain gear is for silly people.

Hello Wordsmith,
 
That pic is from Dedsxy 47(me).  It is an Autel x-star premium drone which I transported to a local park only a few blocks from my house.   And no it is not stable, quite awkward in fact.  Actually it was my first time transporting it on two wheels.  It is those grab bars that keep it from mounting properly.   There are two things I really miss from my 05 FJR 1300.  The electric windshield and the hard bags.  It really was a good bike, 24K miles in 2 years.  But then I traded it in for a Ducati 1098 and my entire life changed forever.......

Spent a little time out with the V stream touring .... I think I really like it ! Way more deflection up and over and just enough around the chest and shoulders for me. Along with the new seat from Terrys custom seats it is really a better bike for the longer rides.... VERY happy with both of these !

Nah... you still got it. Had hopes for this product for some time, but they're waiting it out I guess... maybe engineering didn't quite work out over long term testing with a range of screens that people would inevitably strap onto the thing. The welding job on the head bracketry isn't exactly solid (some had failed we're told). The Tracer owners could see this available for their bikes maybe.
PUIG has the ERS up on there site but not listed for the MT/FJ-09

So I sent them off an email asking for an update on the release date and got a very short answer
 
"This product is still in R+D and no release date is available at this time"
 
So one less gizmo to add to the bike this year.
 
Cheers
 

Received another update today from PUIG, much to my surprise, and they informed me that the ERS system will be available for the MT-09 Tracer before the end of the year. Better than no release date. 
Cheers

Glad you like it.  It stinks when you want to make a mod and not sure how it will turn out, especially the higher priced ones.  Received my EBC brake pads so hopefully, they will improve the braking performance.  Looks like others have fared well from the upgrade.

When I bought this bike a few weeks ago this small dark smoke shield the previous owner put on I'm liking a bunch. I'm an ole VMax guy. The shield reminds me of the old small shield that just covered the round speedo on top of the triple tree. It took the wind off your chest and you get clean air to your helmet. Not for touring of course but for every day it works for me. Cheap too! Here's the link;

I wonder if the picture of the Parabellum is the low, medium or tall.
Calsci does the same thing. Seems like a lot of the windshield mfrs do it.
They post pictures of screens without saying which is which.
I can't stand that!

Well I figured I would poke the bear and see what the status was for the ERS mechanism and the response mirrored last springs response so I am not holding out much hope of actually seeing one of these units on my bike.....so sad. 
 
Cheers
