    Smoked windshield

    Any ideas on tinting the windshield? I'm sure someone has done this before. I don't think car window tint would work.

A location of a Revolutionary battle field and an American victory over the British in the Autumn of 1777. Let us give thanks to all Veterans past and present for their sacrifice.

    I asked this question to friends of mine that own a tint shop and they said absolutely not. They told me the tint wouldn't bend on the curvature,
    even on the shorty. The plexi also expands and contracts with temperature and the tint will not.

    I googeled windshield tint for motorcycles and went to youtube. alot of sport bike riders are painting the underside of their windsields with flat black paint. it was a good look on the top side, but this isnt the look Im after.

    It may be a little early in the process, but I believe that Corbin has windshields with a tint available for their various fairings. Maybe, one could purchase just the windshield?

    Windshield

    I just got the Baggershield 17"-25" adjustable. I know it's not adjustable but it puts the windshield about 12" above the rubber trim. And then with the clear shield it puts another 8" on top. I wanted a little more protection from the wind and this did it. And then if I want I can add the top shield and have no wind. It looks great and is on sale now for about $150.

    That's kinda what I had in mind for a windshield upgrade, I was thinking just a little taller smoked shield. Am I wrong or will any shield that fits a newer goldwing fit the F6B.

    Alright, looks nice!! I see it has slotted mounting holes. So it looks like you can install it at different heights, and I'm assuming this is the same shield that fits the standard Goldwing.

    Headlight tint

    How about the tint kids ("kids"? OMG I AM an old man on a GW!) are using to black out their headlights?
    search for "headlight tint roll" on eBay
