machismo 500

Any chance or offering the windshield shown on the machismo 500? looks like it would be a good touring shield.

I agree on the windshield, Buckeye, but don't hold your breath waiting for RE to make it available in the United States.  (Upon later review, I deem this to be a useless post...sorry!)

Has anyone any experience with this?  The specs are 49 cm high from top of cut out and 46 cm wide.  This is about 19.25 inches tall by 18 inches wide.  That is only a bit taller than the Memphis Shades Demon that is sold here in the store.  I am also leery of the fact that it's a two piece unit.  Will "grunge" accumulate in the joint?  I need something a bit taller to keep the buffeting down.  There seems to be other aftermarket windshields but finding the right mounting hardware is a puzzle.
