Premium Member wessie Posted May 5, 2015 Premium Member Share Posted May 5, 2015 I have moved into a new role at work where I no longer have to take my car to work, "just in case." I can commute the 11 miles by bike which is great and being a rufty tufty sort, I rode there in rain this morning. Whilst we may decry the screen on this bike creating a lot of noise with the air blast around one's helmet, so to speak, this air flow does mean that one's visor is kept clear of water as it just shoots off the edge of the visor. I quite like this effect. On my R1150GS very little rain hit the visor so you would get spray from vehicles hitting you in the face but no clean rain to wash it off again. Annoying. This shouldn't happen on the Tracer. I've put this thread in the screen section as that was my main point, but incidentally, the half fairing does a decent job of keeping rain off your upper legs. Without a fender extender, of course your boots and shins get filthy. I wore overtrousers to keep my jeans clean & dry but the shorty Daytona boots I wear on the bike and in the office didn't look very shiny today. This signature is left blank as the poster writes enough pretentious bollocks as it is. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
