With or Without Motorcycle Windscreens

There is an extant argument about windscreens. Some riders are against the idea of having them in their motorcycles. On the other hand, there are riders who appreciate the importance of having these motorcycle accessories.

Which perspective are we going to consider? Are we going to travel with or without motorcycle windscreens?

Most riders are not used to riding with windscreen on their bikes. This is because they find it a barrier in riding. At times, this can be truthful. In fact, when you travel at nighttime, you will probably have difficulty in seeing through the windscreen because the reflections of dash lights are reflected back at you. Aside from being a hindrance, motorcyclists are finding it injurious in cases of accident where the head can be forced down by it.

The most probable target is the eyes since itís the closest sensitive part to the windscreens. Just the thought of having your eyes injured is dreadful. This is why we have fewer and fewer riders having windscreens around.

Windscreens make us feel dizzy especially when there is poor visibility and wrong angle. What makes them more detesting is the fact that it hinders you. So we think that it will probably be better if we donít have it at all.

The other fraction of riders is in support of having windscreens. I for one, like having them with me during long rides especially when it is very windy and the possibility of being destructed by rain, wind, bugs, insects, dust as well as lightís glare.

A number of riders have same habit as mine. They also want to keep away from the aforesaid riding destruction so they treat their windscreens as their buddies.

The question now is: Is bigger always better? Nowadays, trend must have made obvious the bigger and bigger windscreens. These larger-than-life windscreens look good. However, looks are not the only basis why we want them in. In fact, we also consider wind resistance. And wind resistance is not only where the wind will hit. There is also resistance caused by the vacuum just behind the windscreen. Thus, the faster the bike run and the bigger the windscreen you have, the more weight you take off the bikeís front tire. This results to poor traction or function of weight. The bike becomes slow and steering becomes unworkable. Another drawback is that larger widescreen sweep around riderís grips. Now, decide. Are you going to make a compromise?
