In Search Of A Windshield

I bought a new Bonneville toward the end of 2010 just before winter hit. I had four accessories installed at the dealer but held off on a windshield or fairing. I wanted to make sure that it had the right look for the bike and did a good job of deflecting wind too. I eventually found a roughly mid sized universal type at Dennis Kirk that fit snugly between the speedometer and fly screen. For added stability I drilled through both the fly screen and windshield and bolted the two together. Rubber washers were used to reduce vibration and the potential for of cracking.
