    My CalSci windshield

    Got my CalSci Sporty windshield last week. It looks real nice. Since I am still recovering from my neck surgery, I have yet to take it out on the road to see how well it does. But, it does look cool. Also, I had the NC700X logo made and I put it on the front of the windshield....it is hard to see the silver 'X' due to lighting, but it is there.

    Looks good! Thanks for posting a close up of the mounting points. I have the honda tall windscreen but I'm not sure if I like it. Been thinking about going with one from CalSci since they are bigger and taller. Wasn't so sure about the mount though. As Honda's screen comes with a bracket that spreads out the mounting surface of the screen, making for a pretty sturdy install. And I was skeptical of the CalSci using such a large screen with the stock mounting points.

    The tall Honda screen hits my helmet with the wind, so my head gets buffeted around more than it did with the stock screen. But at least I have something to duck behind when the bugs are swarming on the roads. I'm 5'10" so I think I just need a couple more inches of height for comfort.

    I have Honda touring screen, and have installed 'Vario Ergo screen deflector'. With that there is a big improvement over the touring screen.

    That big screen is called the "Sporty"?

    It is called Sport, not Sporty (sorry). It isn't the Large, or Medium. It is below the Medium. I don't think I would have liked the Large or Medium and it does seem to be just right when I sit on my bike. But again, I don't know how well it does for wind protection as I haven't been able to get it out to test it. I hope to do that very soon.

    Does this windscreen make an air bubble completely around you? Also what is your height?

    Jakeisbill, I don't know just yet. I see my doc on Friday to followup on my neck surgery, and hope he will release me for driving and work. So maybe Saturday?? I am 5'10". From the pics on CalSci's website, and the measurements of the various windshields, I felt like the Sport isn't too big, or too small but just right.
