Hello from Tennessee

Been lurking for a while, thought I would introduce myself. Seems like a lot of good information on this site. Anyone have opinions about the spoiler windshields for batwing fairings? Have a MS fairing, thinking about the spoiler windshield.

Welcome

My opinion - batwings look funny

'06 VStar 1100 Classic - black with ghost flames!
Cobra sissy bar and luggage rack
National Cycle windshield
National Cycle quick release hardbags
Lindby engine guard
Driving lights mounted to engine guard

More to come when I save enough cash!

Welcome to the 4M and I have a full size wind screen, so no help to you there, but I really enjoy it.

Welcome from another new VStar rider. I might be in the minority but I think batwings can look cool on a VStar if it matches the overall aesthetic - IMHO with added bulk on the rear, big saddle bags, ect.

It sounds like he already has a fairing and is just wondering about the spoiler windshield.

Either way, welcome - and Don't forget to post pics!
