I had more fun with my full face and no windshield on the first ride in a long time than I ever did with my windshield and any helmet behind it.

I'm thinking about adding a little fly screen, but I don't see a full windshield going on anything of mine that doesn't have 4 wheels. My helmet does pretty well, but a little pocket of dead-ish air above the tank would be nice on those windier days.

I don't use either so I guess neither is a priority. Nothing but my hair blowing in the breeze.
