Ooooohh, me want one too.

My only concern would be long distance highway miles and the wind.

How do you like it?


Thanks.

I have a Ceebailey replacement screen on order. First thing I did after I rode it home. I tried to get the tall screen from the dealer, but BMW sells 'em as is and no substitutions, so for $130 shipped for the new screen that bolts directly onto the factory sport screen, I beat the $500 to replace with OEM tall screen and the Ceebailey screen is slightly larger than the OEM.

Fingers crossed. Smile

Congratulations, well done. I think you'll find the Boxer twin only gets better with time. I'm on my second one. Smile
