Hi Roadie, i notice you have the 9 inch screen. How tall are you? I'm 5' 10" and think that will work.

Riding taught me why dogs stick their heads out the window of a fast moving car!

Being 5' 9" tall, I tried the stock shield and got to much wind, then borrowed a buddies 11" shield off his Voyager and it blocked too much wind and got no cooling relief in the hot Texas heat.

I bought a dark tinted 9" shield from Cee Bailey, love it, just right, blocks most of the wind, just a little gets in to feel a little cooler on those hot days and still can hear the stereo, too. Quality is tops for the Cee Bailey shields.

Roadie/Martini Man,

I have a two piece shield on my vv it is very nice, because in the summer I have it lower so the wind can cool me down and in the winter I put the clear top part on and the winds is off me.

Thanks

Roger

Hi guys,
Bought a 2017 Red Vaquero. Love the monster. Being 6'5" I need the handlebars to be taller.
I put on the JSR 12" bars. Like them, nice finish, great fit and they went on without any extensions.
But, they are still just a little short. So I ordered the JSR 15" bars.
The real question is; has anybody put taller bars on their Vaquero? And if so is there a extension kit for this, what needs to be replaced.
This bike being unique is harder to find aftermarket parts and I need help from those who have done this.
Help!!!!!

Thanks in advance...
