Had this picture on my desktop - dragged it from a listing for a 650 Turbo that was for sale. Of course now I can't find the listing... Did anyone see this?





Oh, and I think this my first new thread on the new forum.

Definitely changes the look. Would be nice if it goes on and off easily...

I like it.





Does that make me a sissy?

Big difference between a sissy bar on a cruiser bike and one on something like a CXT. A brush guard looks great on a 4X4 truck but not a Porsche.



Only thing that could destroy the looks even more would be one of those extra tall (extra flaming gay) windshields. Ride around on a bike like that and you may as well get yourself some Elton John sunglasses to complete the absurd look.

I use a 6" over windshield in the winter. . . . . it's gayness depends on the angle you look at the bike.

However, it keeps the mist off me face, and a little warmer. If that makes me gay, then rename me Za Za, and ship me off to La Cage Aux Folles.



In the summer, generally I run no shield at all because of the buffeting from the stock height shield.



All joking aside, I have seen, once in my life, a very short backrest/luggage rack on a turbo.

The rack was designed to hold a battery in the event of a stator failure.

Nowhere near as ugly as the one pictured.

I agree this looks terrible, but what about a top trunk? I thought I had seen one several years ago that someone had modified from a different bike (500 silverwing?) I think it would look better than the milk crate I have used in the past

I have one of these sissy bars for the CX650TD that came with the bike separately when I purchased it from the elderly gentleman in Cape Cod, MA. He & his wife used to ride on occasion & think he took it off to sell the bike ? It's in like new condition but I'll never put it back on. If you're interested, make me an offer. If you don't like it, send it back & I'll return your funds.
