9. Windscreen

Superwedge Screen

Some wind in the face is pleasant. A continuous 80-mph frontal blast from departure to return is not. Even the smallest, teardrop shield is capable of providing significant amounts of protection. And wind isn’t your only nemesis. A good shield can also help protect against cold and rain. So, if your non-touring bike is devoid of wind protection, buy some. If your bike’s already equipped, consider expanding on what you have, perhaps by the addition of a Laminar lip.

    There may be the option of buying a very second hand cruiser to do the job and sell it/give it away at the journeys end…May even spice up the trip along the way;)
