Help with cee Bailey's purchase
Is there a way to get a hold of someone at CB who understands what the differences are between the 6 models of windshields they offer for the LT?
I called today and wound up with someone who's best efforts to help me was reading the information on their web site.
When I asked if there was anyone else there who might be more familiar with the LT options, I was just told that people had either left or were talking with other customers--to just read the info on rheir web site?
Presently I use a 17 inch, Euro cut BMW windshield. When the shield is all the way down this short one allows me to see what the road is like fairly close to my front tire. I live on an unmaintained, county, dirt road. Having a "close-up view" makes life a lot more stable. Plus, when I ride around town I leave her all the way down, typically with my helmet's face shield either all the way up, or removed.
It's just tall enough, when all the way extended, to protect me from buffeting, quiets the wind noise way down, seems to bounce sound from the front speakers at me, and does a good job of throwing a lot of the rain over me. During HEAVY rain, I can hunker down abit and look through the screen.
I'd like a new screen to reduce the negative air pressure bubble that seems to be right behind my back, and on my neck.
Riding around here the negative pressure doesn't do much except suck up dust from the road. But, when I'm out of state, and it rains, the draft hits the back of my two piece roadcrafter. And, when it's cold 30-40F I have two zip up my suite making her a one piece. Add rain into the cold.....well y'all go through that.
