I like it.  It looks great, is low profile and is apparently rather effective at speed.  But how could Hitchcock's, a premier global Royal Enfield supplier, knowingly offer an item that blocks our Bullet's signature tiger's eyes. It's all well and good for a Continental GT but I cannot cover my eyes. They are the window to the soul they say, and must be free to shine and warn oncoming riders that they are in the presence of greatness.

Bugs me a bit too but I am going to try one anyway.

Ordered the Hitchcock unit - turned up during the week. The new ones are 32mm deep (rather than 20mm) to accomodate the later models newer headlight bulb connector. Installed easily and looks good, but yet to try it out - maybe next weekend (too much on this weekend unfortunately)

138 pounds?

10% off is still expensive. I'd like it, but not at that price.

I installed my flyscreen yesterday and put about 100 miles on today, nothing over 55 mph though. It was very windy and around 48 degrees F but the screen did diminish the wind pounding my body. It was odd, but with much less wind hitting my torso, the gusts that came from the sides were knocking me about. I had never noticed this on windy days before. It looks cool, was easy to install, a little pricey but I am glad I bought it.

Looks good 9fingers :)

Let us know when it's less windy. I can't imagine me getting one for Christmas though lol.
