Good point, it does depend--I should know better.strsout said:I''m not sure we will ever find the best, since it depends on many factors like high, helmet, position you like (looking under or over), etc.
I'm 6.1 with Arai Signet helmets and I like CeeBayle #2 -2 first and VStream 2nd.
Ryan, thanks for sharing your experience (above link).rjhammetter said:I wrote a comprehensive review a few weeks back regarding my CB #2-2 purchase. I'm still 100% satisfied and believe it was a fantastic upgrade to the bike... 2nd best behind only the PIAA 1100X's
Of course I'm no official motorcycle magazine rider/reviewer. Just a review from real people for real people interested in windscreens - hope that helps! Ryan
I'm guessing both Aerostitch and Cycle Port's Kevlar Mesh would not stand up to a direct shard impact! If you send me a piece, I'll test it against the Kevlar mesh as well.TandemCyclist said:I had a CB#2 w/wings -3 and passenger and I liked the protection. A car knocked the bike off the centerstand and broke the windshield. I would not want to be involved in an accident with the shards that were left if I were one to ride in shorts and a T-shirt. I thought some of the folks here were alarmist when they discussed the materials a WS is made from. Now I'm wondering what to replace the broken WS with. Maybe I'll see if one of the shards will cut my Aerostitch.
I'll hang on to a few pieces and we will experiment when I come through town this winter. I could probably drop the rest of the windshield into the prison at Santa Fe, if you will rent us a plane, and get a nasty riot going. (You may be to young to remember the last one.) Better yet, I'll rent a sailplane from Moriarty and we can fly up there, wait, Cee Bailey makes aircraft WS. I wonder if they use the same material. I sure liked that CB #2 w/wings.....jgburns said:I'm guessing both Aerostitch and Cycle Port's Kevlar Mesh would not stand up to a direct shard impact!
