    I've seen Boss Hogs before but, a FLATHEAD V-8!?!? OMG! That had to sound good. The fairing on the /2 BMW, never seen one of those before. All of them fantastic.

    Nice pics Gary! How fun to be able to go to a gathering like that with your wife on HER OWN bike!
    A nice eclectic gathering of motorcycles and riders.
    I notice that you are running Memphis shades windshields on both bikes, but different styles. If you don't mind, which models do you run and which do you like better? I like the look of the one you have on the resto mod.
    Thanks Bob

    On resto https://memphisshades.com/collectio.../shooter-universal-handlebar-mount-windshield
    On period piece https://memphisshades.com/collectio...hell-cat-universal-handlebar-mount-windshield
    Couple notes about these shields.
    They were swapped when Allison complained the shorter 14" shooter made too much wind noise in her helmet.
    The taller 18" above headlight hellcat is much quieter.
    The reduced wind noise is sweet BUT no wind can become a backache on a what was a comfortable bar height/reach. I suspect the shield creates a low pressure area that actually PULLS the rider forward at highway speeds.

    Thanks for the response Gary. I'm thinking ahead for our winter months and wanted to get a windshield more to knock the cold air blast down some , more than anything.
    You know those 60 degree winter days here in Arizona make my teeth chatter! Haha :confused:

    Btw, I had a Memphis Shades Deuce screen on my BMW that I thought was well made.
