That is a pretty MKIII & the shiled doesn't seem to detract from it. Nice blend with the fastback.
Thumbs up smile

Nice job. But i'm led to believe they direct all the windblast straight into your face. Is this so?

I decided to get this after having to scrape a wasp off my face with my fingers in 3rd gear doing about 55mph.. Wish I had tried one of these 40 years ago, have not been hit in the face by a bug since (still doing the bob & weave though). My bike pulls a lot harder in top gear, I notice a large differance than without it. You look out over the windshield, it doesn't restrict your vision at all. The wind doesn't beat me up anymore, most all the wind is directed over my head and it's a lot quiter. I find myself driving a lot faster than without it. I can remove the windshield and throw over bags in a couple of minutes if I want to change from a touring bike to a cafe racer.

Slick setup Alan. What kind of bags are those, and how do they attach? I like the idea of being a tourer one minute and sport the next.

I don't care for hard bags....I stumbled across these at a Triumph dealer, they seemed to fit the bike OK so I bought them. There is a zipper you undo and they expand bigger. It takes longer to remove the seat than it does to install the throw over bags. I LIKE THEM.

I think my local HondaYamaTriumph shop carries those. Where did you attach the lower straps? The rear footrest?

I attached half of the clip to the frame tube a little below center of the side pannels. This stays on the bike the other half of the clip is on the bag. Super easy, just throw the bags on the bike and plug in the clips...you are done.
