    Hey There!

    I'm interested in your opinion on your batwing on the 900 custom. I really want to get one because I love the look of them, but am curious as to how much protection/how comfortable they are to ride with. I think I would go with a larger windshield because I really want the wind protection, but I'm not sure yet. I really hate helmet buffeting, but also (of course) want to look cool.

    Any insight would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the update and congrats on the new family..yes wife and I traided in the 900 and went to the 2013 voyager we saw the white/silver last year when it came out and just loved it we had the white/titanium 09 900 and had trailer painted to match and I think it's will be a close match for the voyager the hardest part right now is it sits in the garage covered up with the odometer reading 0 and trailer is in shed so until I get them side by side it's hard to tell but it's been a long winter looking at a new bike waiting for spring

    Hello whitings haven't talked to you for a while and was thinking that I read in a post somewhere that you had moved up to the voyager and had your 900 and Piggybacker on consignment at a dealer was wondering if that all worked out or whether I was completely wrong about all

    I read your post about the trip towing the trailer. I have a 2003 800 classic and I want to put on a trailer hitch but have heard that the smaller cruisers run hot trying to pull this much weight. Did you have any problems like this towing your trailer?

    Maurice,

    I hope all is well with you and your family. Question for you. Do you notice a protection/noise benefit from using the Batwing vs. stock windshield? I figure if anyone on here can tell me it is you. Thanks for the input. Drive and ride safe
