I saw one of the post pictures of a hump bag, and thought that would come in handy, especially with the map pocket on top. (We have a lot of ride leaders in our GWRRA chapter that tend to get us lost taking the wrong road. ha ha) :dontknow: Now I will be able to give THEM directions!! :thumbright:

Also I am experiementing on a windshield cover. I used the iron-on letters for the lettering, and printed the logo onto the iron-on transfer paper you use with a color printer. I'm not sure yet what I will do with the back portion of the fabric. I like that it covers the mirrors, dash and handlebars. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I posted the pictures in the gallery. Here is the link....

I use a hump bag when I tour, and have found it to be handy. When I'm not touring, I stash it in the tail section of the underseat trunk with a bunch of emergency gear in it - keeps that stuff from sliding all around in the trunk.

I've never seen a cover like that before. On the back portion of the fabric that covers the windscreen, you might consider using a soft material that would prevent scratching. Many good motorcycle covers put a kind of soft fleece lining there.

I used a heavy weight sweatshirt type fabric. The underside is plush, and softer than a baby blanket. I plan on scotchguarding the outside, I don't know how much waterproof protection that will provide, but it will keep the sun off the shield and the dash.

I remember hearing about a couple of incidents where the sun actually melted the top of a motorcycle dash. Apparently, the windshield acted as a magnifying glass... Probably not a bad idea to have a cover like that. Waterproofing isn't as big a concern, unless you are covering the entire scooter.

I had a funny thought. If you ever end up parked in the middle of a bunch of Black Burgman 650's - you'll be able to quickly tell which one is yours...
Not so likely to happen just yet with a Burgman, but I drive a White Ford Taurus. Walk out of a Walmart, and you'll see maybe thirty of them. A couple of times I have pressed the "trunk" button on my key remote to see which one the trunk popped up on... :)

Nicely done! Can I ask what do you have mounted just above your key? is that a radio or intercom system?

It is a thermometer, that's all. We had installed one of the J&M CB2003 and had attached it to the top of the brake resevoir, but the radio didn't transmit. I could hear, but no one could hear me when I talked. All the husbands in the Gold Wing group didn't see why we needed to try to fix this little problem. They wished their wives couldn't transmit either. ha ha :lol: We returned it to J&M last week. They are going to fix it, or replace it.
