    I am a convert to Puig

    Whilst waiting for the 12,000 mile service to be done on my CR I noticed that the shops demo bike now had a Puig screen fitted. I took it out for a run just out of interest to compare it to my Honda touring screen. The result was that I now have a dark tint one on order and I'm hoping that it arrives in time for my trip to N.Ireland next week.
    I found that there was definately less buffeting to my head and it seemed a tad quieter

    I have the Puig screen , good protection and well made.
    The CR does not need a 12K service. Service intervals are 8K, 16K, 24K

    True but I still like an oil & filter change every 4K and as I was supposed to be leaving for a holiday in N.Ireland (sadly cancelled) I was having the bike checked over so it was sort of a 12K service

    I also like to do an oil & filter change every 4K but I do it myself. Dont like to pay the dealers unless I have to. Wont be going to a dealers when the warranty runs out not just because im to mean to pay there prices. I just dont trust them

    That's where I'm lucky in having a dealer that I really trust. They have a really good reputation. There is even a group of guys that travel from the I.O.W. to Kent to use them

    Looks nice!  :028:  I've always found taller screens are a balancing act between wind protection and noisy turbulence and what suits one person does not always suit another. How tall are you?
