Thanks BMWROLLIN that's exactly the response I was looking for. I too was thinking about getting the tinted one so this really helps me make up my mind. I'm not sure how much longer I will have this bike so spending $$$ on it is hard to do. Thanks again for your feedback.BMWROLLIN said:I have one and was a little concerned that I wouldn't like it but for the difference in price I could afod to take a chance. I elected to get one of the smoked ones which also had me concerned. I was pleasantly surprised and so far happy with the purchase. I only have a couple hundred miles on it but so far thumbs up . The fit and finish are good with good optical clarity. I personally prefer to look over the windshield but when I put it up for protection from rain it is fine and the smoked version is very slight. I have read many reviews on products and I am probably not as discriminating as some of our members so if you live on the East Coast you can check mine out if you like. I will be at VIR this coming weekend for the ASRA races.
