Post by 808Airhead »

Hello everyone,I wanted to start a thread that will showcase our bikes taken with nice scenery or just a favorite snapshot of your beloved steed....post them up if you got some and would like to share. Here are some of mine I will shamelessly add since Hawaii is over abundant with scenery.........lets see them,don't be shy,post them up!

I can't compete with Hawaii

Post by schrader7032 »

I can't compete with Hawaii scenery, but here's a shot of my R69S and my friends R60/2 on the way to Vech's Rally in the spring of 2009. This is at the eastern river that separates Texas from Louisana, the Toledo Bend Resevoir.

Whoa what the heck is that

Whoa

what the heck is that cool little windshield...I bet it makes a difference. Does not take much to break the worst of the wind in your face on a bike

is it custom made ? your own creation ? Where did you get it ?

by the way...lovely shots. Could be Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia...if you added some fog !

I know, I know... It's called a Renn-Shield. See it at http://www.renn-shield.com. It was shown in the Winter 2009 VBMWMO Bulletin. Listed at $165 or so back then.

And 808 showed it to use in this past thread:
