It is definitely different than the Puig Universal Touring 2. The wind is deflected to mid helmet for me at 5' 11" and it made 75 MPH comfortable but a bit more helmet noise than the Puig. I must say that I have never been on the bike, now at 6,400 miles for more than an hour plus at highway speeds. So I can't tell you how it would be for a full day ride, but for my riding style it works and I really like the look and how it attached to the bike! It's a keeper for me!
Speaking of Spring Rides, I was in San Antonio last week, and took a few of my business associates out for a ride, courtesy of Club Eaglerider, and Cowboy's Alamo City H-D. Some Eaglerider locations are starting to include Honda's (Africa Twins and Rebel 500's), but this location was solid H-D. I can't say enough about this dealership. They went out of their way to welcome us, and make sure that we had a great experience. All the equipment was brand new 2019, and 2020 models. I had a Heritage with the 114" M-8 engine, we also had a Street Glide with a 107 M-8, a Road King with a 114" M-8, and a Fat Boy with a 114" M-8. All of our group was impressed with the improvements that H-D has made in engine smoothness, power, ride quality, and handling. Even so, if there was a different location in town with G-W's, RT1250's, Vulcan's, or V-stars, I think they would have gotten our business.
If you find your self in San Antonio, stop by Cowboy's H-D and say "Hi" to the Rental Manager, Rob Hummer. or the Parts Manager, Jamie Lee. Jamie accompanied us out to New Braunfels, to show us the back roads, and would up staying with us for the afternoon. We got a lot of local lore from him and we were happy that he Road Captained our group.
Got a chance to take a short ride out to the Gandy boat ramp on Saturday and 2 min into the ride came across a Harley trike missing its front end. You can see the car that hit it in the video. With all of the stress and distractions of the Corona virus people aren’t as focused as they should be...
I posted a video yesterday showing what my bike looked like when it arrived in the US in early 2015, then as it progressed from my purchase in the fall of 2015 until March 2020. It was fun to look back and see how it changed! Thanks for all the memories and those to come!
