I got a good chance to try the new OEM tall windshield and rode in hard rain for a few hours. Honestly, the tall windshield does a really decent job of keeping the rain and wind off of you. I get airflow on my helmet but overall two thumbs up!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I didn't bring my waterproof gloves and my hands were still somewhat dry.

Gas mileage dropped to 64.5 mpg with the windshield installed. To be fair though I was fighting wind and rain this whole tank of gas so time will tell as I log a few more tanks.

I rolled into the garage with another 177 miles on her and she did well in the rain and wind.

On a side note my gas shock that keeps the seat up is failing. More and more it just closes on it's own. Has anyone taken theirs back to Honda to have it replaced under warranty?

Thanks,

Eric

Whelp, the Forza is sold and after mods and putting 1,300 miles on her net, I lost $200. What a great scooter! Time for a new project!

The short version of this is I had to help out a family member. I'm scooterless!  :'(

I absolutely loved my Honda Reflex (250), and I'm horribly regretful I sold it (even at a nice profit). I want another one.

Saw the Rossi helmet and thought----I'm going to keep reading.
Saw the Ohlins and thought----this guy and I should be neighbors!
Nice scooter!
