    This.

    The recurve on the stock windshield creates eddies that can bounce you around. Some people just cut the stocker down.

    I had the CalSci XL, L, and shorty and liked the short one the best. With the Madstad bracket you could move it to your liking.

    did some dirt after work...bike would do it, but not with a smile...definitely bottomed the rear suspension pretty hard leaning back and getting on the gas over hardpack/washboard stuff.



    Seems like something expensive is going to break (today just a turn signal), and it'll be a PITA to pickup after a fall.



    softer stuff, bike on the verge of tipping over randomly

    had another emergency swerve today...dude merged illegally over the double yellow right into me...I definitely need more lights and the exhaust mods per stromtroopers!

    although it was sweet not having to load a truck to get home...35 mins, back home!

    been reading strom troopers - maybe also a bead seat...and the stock windscreen turbulence is fo' realz...

    Storm troopers is great if you like to get yelled at for disagreeing with anything one guy who runs it says. AND NO SWEARING! FUCK!

    Start first with a DL1K seat. Cheapest upgrade. Makes a world of difference.


    How you haven't ordered a Madstad + Givi/CalSci yet is beyond me.

    Iglu

    I got permanently banned from Stormtroopers even though I started and was running their most successful rally

    The post was

    How many cray supercomputers melted down photo shopping Kaitlyn Jenner. Additionally every time I said something anti lawyer
    he counted it as if I insulted a member directly.

    And the TADA is he gave up riding motorcycles himself but still rules stromtrooper

    He is an anal retentive retired high school chemistry teacher

    The extra funny thing is about 3 months before Stromtrooper put in what you would call a
    controversial topics section where had he been an honest monitor he could have simply moved that
    comment/thread to that section rather than ban me.

    For me to be an honest broker he does diligently answer all technical questions
    with facts , and references to the manual

    Unfortunately I don't think he would find love in Vegas with a fist full of fifties

    not always

    this is a response that was posted to him in a thread a couple days ago after he posted in something outside his "expertise"

    So what you are saying Greywolf, you do not know of where to get crashbar paint, correct. or do not know of the color. That is not so hard to say is it?

    Re: DL650's lament



    Thanks for the heads up!

    I am quite the experienced forum aggravator... Surprised I haven't been banned from any so far!

    FACT: with the DL650 (or any adv/touring bike) you think twice about stuff that will get you hurt



    Yz250 would be trying to clear farther than the BMX kids LOL

    DL...Nope. Fzr wouldn't even be seen around these parts. So the DL gets me here, but keeps me from going too far with it.

    Yeah yeah...Gonna start my own thread for these excess shenanigan posts.

    Handguards definitely help with chilly night rides. Heat the grips for perfection. No thick gloves necessary.

    Still waiting on calsci website to go up... Windscreen is top of the list...Then beadrider seat. Wanting to wake up and ride 500 miles for lunch. Also gonna cut pea trap exhaust and add LED lights, along with phone charger and ram mount with x-grip

    Don't ruin the kids' jumps by even trying to roll over them.

    Madstad also makes a windshield. Don't know what's up with CalSci. The guy who runs it is fascinating: along with being a high-mileage rider (who owned a DL650 for several years) he's a PhD focused on Aerodynamic problems. You'll learn more about windshield aerodynamics in 10 minutes on the phone with him then anywhere else.
