Getting the majority of the wind out of your face keeps the fun in running hard for more than 15 minutes. Everything is realative, the difference between 65 and 85mph + is huge. Slight reverse clear windscreens do cost a little speed but they're definitely worth it, keeps the fun in those 50 mile legs Nobody notices them unless ya point them out.

The Bombers work really well, the B52s fit really tight and are polarized. We liked them so much that I got my wife to rep them here on the east coast. They are great people to deal with.

The glasses do float but if I lost them at 80mph I doubt I would be able to find them.

I get it now ... I guess your panties got in a bunch because you thought I was dissin' YOUR boat ... I wasn't ... Actually, I think your boat is WAY frickin' cool. I've checked it out a few times over at Dan's shop. BUT, do you ever run it? I've never seen it on the water and I'm out almost every weekend on mine or somebodys boat. There's a bunch of guys that I'm sure would like to see how it runs if you know what I'm sayin'

As long as you are on this subject I was out on Half Nutz Top Gun last weekend and thought those little flip up things are WORTHLESS! What have some of you other TG guys done?

Cig1, no I was trying to be funny.

I've only run it a few times. Went into the shop just after Xmas for some small changes/updates during the winter. Finally got it back in March and then immediately lost a jesel timing belt and hurt an engine. Now it's back in for one fresh engine and a few more small changes while the engine is getting done. Everything takes SOOOO long. I finally stopped worrying about it. I try to bug them alot but it still takes forever. I think Dan wants it gone as bad as I want it back.

FYI, no harleys here, dirt bikes instead.

Dude, you're 7' tall when you stand in a TG you look like you're wearing it
The new ones are set up like mine and they work much better.
