i have tried rotating the handlebars. . But it didnt do me any
good. . And also, the handlebars will hit your tank when you turn to
the end points. . The only thing that really made a differnce was
when I cut down the windscreen completley. . The windspeed that hits
my upperbody relaxes my back just fine. . I can lean on the wind!
I orderd a new screen from Gustafsson plastic in US. Its sporty and
short with a dark blue tone to it. . Looks great. Pictures will be
added in the photo section soon. .
