Nice bike at a very nice price!

A little off topic - My bike came with the same windshield as yours and I never put it on until yesterday (it's gettin cold in St. Louis). it looks like you put the mounts on the handlebars with the attachment bolt holes on the underside of the bar, and I put mine on top. Do you know what's the right way (did the dealer put yours on)? It seems to fit Ok, just curious. THX

or with people you wanted to talk to, this is why my #1 answer when someone asks "Is this your bike" I say "No".

You'll have to go back and see my last post Lux - updated for you.

pgilliam1, I put the shield on myself. I am not sure if that was installed the right way or not?

About the same as what I have now (the rizoma knock-offs in the first post). I don't really trust them - it is just a tool for a quick assessment before I look back and verify. I actually drove to work for awhile with no mirrors (luckily I did not get pulled over).

Then again, the whole Vrod was a mirror wasn't it

"inexpensive" rather than cheap
