Re: CEE BAILEY SHIELD
I just got a Slipstreamer. I read some of the posts here and decided it was the best bang for the buck -- for my 14 year old bike that is primarily a commuter. It was $103 (including "free" shipping) through Amazon. It did come with two minor scratches off on one side, but it will probably have many more by this time next year.
The original windshield had gotten to the point where I could barely see through it.
When I bought the bike eight years ago, apparently I took the windshield off, probably just to clean under it. I had marked the plastic covers and the metal brackets with L and R and "up".
Just now, as I was putting it back together, I gingerly snapped the cover back on one side and I couldn't figure out why it wasn't lying flat on the windshield. I snapped it back off and on again to make sure the tab had gone into the slot. Still not sitting right. Then I noticed that the angle at the bottom was perpendicular to the cut of the windshield.
Oh, fradtz. They were (correctly) marked L and R as one is sitting on the bike. I was standing in front of the bike.
Screws back out... swap them to the correct sides... screws back in. Hey, the covers now fit correctly.
If you look at the map and don't care where you are, you're not lost.
