It says 4” x 2 1/8” in the full description.
Thanks, I'm losing my mind. I went back three more times this morning clicking on every link imaginable, still don't see a size listed. No matter I ordered. I like the design of the Burgman in this patch far more than any other I've seen that look more "scooterish" these look serious, like a bird of prey in flight. (Busa)

Now you need a couple of these
Finally arrived Dave, appreciate the link it was worth the wait. I like the faring and the wing, both cool and classy. This is going on my new summer mesh jacket. I use that 98% of the time (except today) as it's chilly this morning and we postponed our breakfast ride to a lunch ride. Crisp/clear blue sky, low humidity. I will get some pics for you guys that are in hibernation.
Thank you again (y)

So, turns out we rode despite the frigid temps. It was a real nice day, first a hearty warm breakfast of biscuits and gravy eggs over easy scattered well hash browns side of bacon and sour dough toast with sweet tea. I don't know what was better, the ride or the meal and spirit of comradery.

The Burgers. I never noticed the difference in the mirror height between the years, I like his 2007 location better. Looks better lower, I have not ridden one so have no idea of the field of view.

This is a popular tourist boat. I see it regularly taking tourists on the Intra Coastal Waterway, passed directly below us.

The we found an Amish Bakery and Deli. The very sweet woman said she's been there 40 years. Funny thing is it's just 4 miles from my house and I never knew it existed. I purchased a shoo-fly pie for me, and some Amish candy for my wife.

Some more from Amish Country, quaint little store. I will be back; I like to support the little local businesses.

This was a great day and at the end of the day my friend gifted me with a guardian bell, I couldn't be happier.

:unsure:...so it was below 75 deg?
Yup...69° I'm sitting in front of the fire thawing out with a blanket, desperately trying to get life back into my limbs. Picking at the frostbite on my nose. Tomorrow should reach 75°...if I survive the night, I'll attempt another run tomorrow.
It was horrible. I actually saw people wearing jackets, sweatshirts and closed toe shoes.

It's from the Marvel Comics Punisher series, it has the Suzuki "S" in the middle. My US Marine Corps Globe and Anchor, American Flag and NRA stickers were scaring people, so we toned it down to the more sensitive world we live in. My Busa emblem was short lived and stolen while getting new tires at the dealer. This was gifted to me.

The Punisher’s Skull, a ghostly white cranium often painted over a pitch black background, perfectly occupies the uncomfortable shaded areas in the venn diagram of politically conservative audiences, law enforcement, and hyper-masculine power fantasies. For some, it symbolizes honor and gritty determination.

The Guardian Bell I was gifted yesterday. Anyone have a Bell mounted?

Looking for ideas of mounting locations on a Burgman. (Easier on a motorcycle) Looks like I will need to fabricate something for the 2017. Does not appear to have any quality attachment points where I like to mount them (lowest part of the bike possible) somewhere between the foremost part of the bike from the radiator to roughly where my feet are positioned.

I finally got around to installing my little flip shield this morning @ zero dark thirty. I've had mixed emotions because it was so (inexpensive) but not cheap. I always envisioned these little things coming loose, getting airborne as guillotines that would slice your head off in flight. Honestly this and my Grip puppies have been the best money spent for comfort on this Burgman. This installed in the full down position, top angled outward puts the wind over my head (I'm 6') PERFECT and no need to adjust the shield anymore over 60 mph I purchased the small version.

Now if I could just find comfort in this darn seat, it's killing me. I removed the operator's backrest, hoping to get more room for my long legs. I gained the room I wanted, although now seat is more uncomfortable. Next step was purchasing an expensive gel pad. This thing is very well made, non-slip contact surface to the seat, nice gel. I took it off in less than 5 miles. I never cared for any type of over the seat pad, gel, air hawk, sheepskin or otherwise. I prefer to sit down as low as possible in the seat, not up high on it. It's a shame, extremely nice pad.
I guess I'll need to suck it up, refuse to spend the cash on a Corbin or Russel.

Suck it up I did... and enjoyed the morning. Beautiful day.

Short ride then home to finish some home projects, Happy Wife, Happy Life. I got my sanity ride in and that's all the matters.

I tried yet another seat covering option. The gel worked well, but at $126.00 I would not recommend it and being in Florida the gel is TOO HOT...does not breath at all.

This was cheap and I mean cheap, same size and shape as the gel and works VERY WELL and also comes with a breathable cover that when installed looks identical the gel cover pictured above. I did try the beads and they are a no go for me as well due to a bony butt. I now use the gel on my barstool in my kitchen.
This works for me...

Yes, one of my favorite original "Marvel Characters", really like his "Persona" ... Kind of a " John W.Creasy "...

Kind of subliminal message :whistle: , had similar one on the SW600 for a while. (y)

Cheesesteak Ride today
Met up with Dan at his house. He just installed an Ermax Short Shield, bike on the left. We rode to Delco's for Cheesesteaks. Voted best in Florida. My take... it was good, quality meat, I ordered extra cheese which I like throughout, this was all on the bottom. Once in your mouth it was all good great favor, nice sear to the meat and fresh baked bread lightly toasted with a Franks Draft Birch beer. It was a winner although I have had better but none better in Florida.

I did get us lost enroute, going from memory in my old head. My memory card is maxed out. Dans a gadget guy and pulled it up on his gadgetry. I was in the correct location, just a couple miles south of the intersection we needed to be at. All good and part of the ride on a Burgman, just see some new things. Good thing about riding with him, never gets frazzled/upset. Good safe rider.
