I like your parking area :D



A bit OCD for a garage. Full central heating and carpeted out with my PCX standing on a clear plastic carpet protector with a mat for the centre stand matching the one at the external door, as well as the mat leading into the house. Kitchen base units with matching wall units on top for my cleaning and scooter stuff.

It's always important to be warm and comfortable with good lighting in your 'man cave'!

With all that ocd why didn't you put that rubber around the edge of the screen? [img]https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170222/275fa2ed0f6f517dde5f626d6e905c4f.jpg[/img]

Because I like the idea of a clear screen I can see through without the distraction on a lump of rubber around it!

lolofigo, I can't see your image. Are you mentioning the thin rubber trim that goes around the base of the givi screen after it's installed? To finish off the look and close up a bit of the gap? I had used that rubber trim piece on mine when I had that screen installed. Can you try to repost your pic another way so everyone here knows/sees what you're suggesting to Chapel77? That would be cool! :P

Cut and pasted his link on my laptop, it showed a rubber trim all the way around the edge of the full screen, a bit distracting for me, and a prefer a 'cleaner' look.

I'm using tapatalk app on my phone to view posts and post pictures without resizing. There was rubber trim that goes around the screen included in the kit but it seems like I'm the only person bothered to put it on.

Maybe you can cut the "L" decal down to where it just fits over the Givi name. There seems to be a lot of white background on the decal, certainly more than would seem necessary to get the point across.

Legal requirement to have it that size, white background included!!!

Some do alter or cut it down, but there is always a risk of bumping into a Police Officer. 3 points on your licence and can invalidate your insurance, so seizure of your scooter and another 6 points!

So it is now the time to put a new 'L' plate back on the front of my scooter :|

I know it spoils the look of the scooter, but I need a clean driving licence more!

Chaple77, the windshield looks great. Where does the wind hit you now, and how tall are you? I'm 5'-10" (178cm).

I'm of similar height, wind now deflects around head level, but doesn't impact as much as when it was more chest level. Very much depends on how I wear my helmet, with the front flipped up I get quite a lot of buffeting around 50mph or so as the wind seems to catch on the chin piece, with my helmet closed, no bother!
When it's raining, my chest usually stays dry, rain catches the outside of my arms instead.

Hope this helps, I have no regrets fitting this screen.
