I've had CalSci screens on both my BMWs.

Highly recommended.

You could probably ride over and try one on. I think he's in Sacramento.

Thank ya Gentlemen, I'll keep them in mind. My buddy bought the little carbon fiber fly screen version for his Pikes Peak. Riding it I didnt have a prob with the wind but we'll see what living with one means. Though I still have a week before I pick up the bike. A long, looong week. Then I'll have to update my avatar pic with the current hand grip.

Ok I have to get a Cal Sci now, just the directions to the shop were enough to sell me. That and they are near two of my buddies I'm overdue in visiting.

Pretty cool that the V-Star has a fairing with nicely integrated NAV/audio system. The bags look like they are part of the plan too, instead of tacked on. The Star definitely looks like the bike that is most functional and most satisfying to get along with day to day.

Funny though, I have not really been around these bikes and was walking through a Honda showroom as my short legged friend is interested in the new CTX 700. All the cruisers are so damn low. I would hate that, being eye level with SUV's bumpers all the time. Sit up riding positions with their commanding view of the road for me then...

Default V-Star

Any manufacturer that makes a bagger at such a low price point and decent performance and then throws in an audio system and a 1000 buck Garmin, has my attention. BMW lists it as a big ticket option even on their 25K tourers. Who needs a Harley?
