I think actually seeing the front wheel is over-rated. :hihihi:

Not exactly....the windshield only weighs in at less than 2 lbs. The faring was 37 lbs. I can really feel the difference in handling big time! I added 12 lbs of air to the front shocks just like when I had the faring on and the front end just keep bouncing. Let the air out to just 2lbs and it is just right.....smooth as silk and digs in corners real easy!

I figure with the weight loss on the front end, I have saved myself about $100 on not having to purchase new Progressive springs for the forks to support the faring weight! :hihihi:

Thanks Brian! Yep, the tree has grown as I try to keep taking pictures in the same spot. Hard to believe I have had the bike for 7 years at this point!

The ride off stand...when parking do you push it down and roll back while on the bike or standing next to it and roll back?

I put the side stand down and get off the bike. Then, press the roll off stand down and be sure the bike is centered on both legs. With a gentle pull back on the left grip while holding the stand foot down, the bike rolls right up on it. It is so much easier than the OEM centerstand.

Do you have the stock center stand at all, or did you lose that when you had to have the cross-member replaced? I can't tell for sure if it is in the picture or not.
