Great pictures, great account too - had me chuckling.
Sounds like a real sociable and fun gathering.

Well jealous!

There used to be a dealer located at Balmain NSW that imported the Aeroflow screens from the USA.
They weren't cheap!
I bought mine 2nd hand from a fellow BMWMCQ member who was selling his K100RS.
The are 2 sizes of screen - regular and tall. I have the "tall" fitted.

It makes a considerable improvement to my comfort (I have bar risers fitted as well) but knocks the fuel economy about.
The skippys were bad between Nindigully and Talwood on Sunday morning.
I cruised between 90 - 100km/h and had to hit the brakes 4 times to avoid our furry friends!

Nice screen. Me wants. Bloody expensive though. May just have to use the LT front fairing I guess. 

Wonder if someone in Aus could make a screen like that, custom?

Screens for bikes . com Located in Mexico (Vic). 

I have bought two screens from this chap.  A tinted 75S and the low cut RT screen. 

The owners name escapes me but I was impressed with his service.  I think he spends a day answering emails and the rest of the week making screens to order.  My screens cost $120 & $140 with $20 P&P.  Turn around was a week or so depending on how busy he is. 

I said to him that I am happy to support the local guy as against buying overseas.  There is also the chance a screen being damaged if arriving from overseas thru the mail. 

He receives the TacKler thumbs up tick of approval.   Nindigully ride in May. - Page 4 212902 

Cheers, D
