Fairing options

Hi all

I have been doing some investigating into what is out there for aftermarket fairings. My ride is a 2009 Vulcan 1700 Nomad

At this point I see there are a couple of choices, the Tsukayu and Memphis Shade options are both basically what i am looking for. I am not looking to add a stereo or anything like that, its more for the look as i like how it finishes the bike off, more so than my windshield.

Any comments from forum users good and bad would be greatly appreciated, as it is a somewhat big investment, and i don't want something that is going to be annoying me as i cruise down the highway. I do ride on the highway at speeds of 100 Kph quite often, so the quality matters. Being in Canada i need to do the research first, since most products come from the USA and freight and brokerage costs tend to add up.

Any input is appreciated!!

Ride Safe!

Yea, that is exactly what i am after. For the money it looks like a good deal. You bought the custom brackets for the nomad? Install was pretty basic?

Thank you for that information. Interesting that it uses my factory windshield mount instead of having to purchase alternative brackets.
