    Just finished my first ride with my Jimbo Cafe Shield Installed and WOW! Thanks so very much for such a great product! I can't express how much I LOVE this bike and all the great support and aftermarket advice I've gotten from this forum! Happy trails all!

    It's the best TW product on the market.

    I've gone a bit "Overboard" the few 3 weeks I've owned my T Dub. Cortec sport bag,Tusk risers, Jimbo shield, oversized footpegs. I Love, Love, Love this bike. I've owned everything from dirtbikes to crotch rockets to a 1200CC Harley but I've got to say this bike has been the FUNNEST bike I've yet to own!!

    Perhaps you could also tell us -why- the shield rates a "Wow!" I presume it makes a good windbreak? Or does it simply "look cool?" (perhpas both?). Would a person inclined to ride their TW offroad be inclined to use something like this or is it mostly useful for higher on-road speeds? Can it be quickly removed for those times when you might not want it?

    I find that the Jimbo shield is just high enough to push the majority of the wind up and over my head. AND it looks cool.

    As a small shield I rate it good . It is easy to install and is solid. You must remember that it isn't going to protect like a large one. I have to get down on the tank to get full protection from the bugs.

    i'm 6'2" and was taking all the air blasting up over the headlight shield right under the chin of my helmet. at higher speeds my head was being buffetted all over. after about an hour of riding my neck would start to get sore. i got the jimbo shield over winter and installed it in about five minutes. it comes off just as easy if you are uneasy about the guillotine factor of riding offroad with a faceshield. (although my fears are alleviated by the nice rolled edge)

    now the wind is being pushed up and over my helmet and i no longer feel the blast (unless i straigten up real tall when i stretch my back)



    its a great mod for several reasons: it looks good, its easy to install and its functional!

    There are all sorts of reasons to spend money and buy products. All of the above are valid, but here's mine. Jimbo has been on the forum for awhile now and has always left me with the impression that he is a good human being. As a Fireman, I am sure he makes a comfortable living, but still, he had a 'dream'.



    How many of us have thought of a 'neat' idea that may be of 'value' to a few other folks on the planet. That thought process may be long or short, but for most of us, we succumb to the 'negative'. By that I mean; can't do it, it won't work, no-one will pay that kind of money for it.... ect.



    I paid my money to acknowledge someone that still believes in dreams. It's a double edge sword Jimbo....... But you made it work and it stands as an inspiration to many, even those that have never posted I suspect. Great 'dream' and a great product. Thanks, Gerry

    Take care my Friend.........
