    Good to have 'normal' brakes again!

    Cheers all, now lets get some miles done :)

    Gold Wing?! You can't say that here...wash your mouth out! lol

    Givi touring screen and I have to say it's superb and definitely one of the best after market screens I've tried. In my defence it looks better in the flesh.

    Glad you like though..:cool-new:

    Screen questions:
    (I need a different screen as mine just channels air up into my helmet and makes it very loud)

    1. Which specific one is it?
    2. Does it push air over your head or at least at visor level? (i'm 5ft 11, for reference)

    5' 11' too!

    I think this the only screen that Givi do for the 800 Fi and I found it on ebay from a German supplier...cheapest by about £10.

    Makes 80-90 all day touring speed much more tolerable. I've had bad results from double bubble screen on Blackbirds and a GSX-R 1000 and this flip is like the Pyramid flip I put on a Blackbird...A huge improvement.
    More than that, it looks right. If you look at the side on view it follows the line of the fairing faithfully in one flowing line.

    I'm 6'-1" and the Givi that was on my '98 when I bought it gave me some serious buffeting at speeds over 60. I ended up buying a ZG stock height and love it. Air hits me right at the top of my shoulders.

    Love the bike in black.

    Are your mirrors EMGO or OEM Honda?

    Man, that looks nice. Lots of black and silver and such. Classic bad-azzery.

    The mirrors are Honda. I just prefer them to the stock ones with the nasty rubber condom thing over the stem.

    Seeing as you mentioned the black and silver colour scheme...am thinking of dark silver/aluminium silver for the wheels...what d'ya think?
