"Test ride"

Post by Stu » Sun May 24, 2020 6:44 pm

Fitted one of these today thread here viewtopic.php?f=32&t=72639

people rant and rave at how good they are so bought a cheap one to try and as a result I had to go for a "test ride" more about the screen in another post if you can find it :lol:

Took a little blast on some local roads and where I live I get roads like these within 5 mins or so

None of these gravel roads and abandoned villages like in Spain!

Lovely roads with a nice bit of green :D

Nice 50 mile blast towards the coast and back

No pics of the sea as its brown and not blue like Spain :lol:

I can’t find the thread @Stu

I have one of these sat in my shed. (Can’t remember the make though) I used it for quite a while on the VK1, but since getting a GIVI airflow screen I’ve not needed it.

@fullscreenaging I am going to do a separate thread on it so I can leave this thread for @XTreme to take the piss out of our lovely green fields :D

I don't understand how you'd get turbulence when it's permanently parked up in your garage @Stu?

@Stu Ahh. I thought you’d already done one.

He was very quick to bite. Obviously missing all the proper roads and greenery.
