    Jimbo Spotting

    I had the honor of meeting Jimbo last week. I was working in SoCal and he was nice enough to stop by and show me the excellent windshields he makes for our bikes after I contacted him to let him know I was interested (I'll be buying two). Great guy, super friendly.

    I have one on my TW. Very well built, easily installed. It does cut the wind down at higher speeds.

    Yamaha should put them on from the factory. They add so much to the little TW's.

    I spoke with Jimbo about this issue. He experimented with several prototypes before settling on the size. Lots of talk about vortices, but what caught my attention was hill climbing. If the windshield is too tall, then you risk getting a karate chop to the neck from it when you're leaning forward tackling a bumpy hill. The current height reduces that possibility while keeping a substantial portion of the wind off your chest at speed. This reduces arm fatigue during longer rides.
