Yep, just went out and was tougher (but Loving). Did the trick. NOW debating taller windshield vs BIG cut in gas milage--Corbin seat VS losing storage space and my short legs. TRYING my 1st service vs inept dealer AND a LOT of $$$. Hey, this IS still like a motorcycle huh? :oops:

On my road trips I was getting 50 -51MPG. The Clearview XXL might cut that down to 48 - 49; I can live with that.

Last week I only did in-town riding, and my mileage was only 39MPG. All that idling at lights and running in low ratio really sucks up the go juice. But at lower speeds the XXL would have less of an effect, so I'd probably not see much of a drop at the low end.

I'm ordering my XXL next pay day. At 6' 5" I think it'll make me happier than saving a few MPG points, since where I ride gas stations are plentiful and the price is going down. (As it always does in the summer here. Great for us fair weather bikers!)
