I've taken my shield off a few times this summer. I do like the way my 950 looks totally naked, but windshield (and saddlebags) are not only luxurious, but kinda necessary in my opinion. If I have to hop on the highway for a stint, or ride home at night, it's nice not to be "hanging on for dear life", as other's have stated, or getting bug guts all over my shoulders and face shield.
I would actually like a shorty shield, you know, just something to take the wind blast off the chest. If the riding position were different I wouldn't mind the highway blast as much. If my feet were below me or slightly behind me then it would be less straining to lean into the wind. Like for instance I don't think I would mind wind blast while riding a super naked sport bike, but a cruiser is different. My 950 has me inclined to reclining, and relaxing, just chillin' and enjoying the ride.
Keep moving, learning, loving, and living.
