    Absolutely great mods on Your AT. I can surely feel some envy here!!
    Question about Your screen. One of the previous pics I can see You having a MRA short tinted screen. How come You bought a Touratech screen instead?
    Asking beacuse I have a Touratech short tinted screen, bought it because of all buffeting from stock screen. Well, Touratech screen was better than the stock one but I still had a lot of buffeting winds riding in high speeds. So I cut it about an inch and it got better. But I thinking of cut it another half inch.
    Im riding in South East Asia so I dont need any protection from cold winds like many other living in Europe or some other cold parts.
    Pic from my screen after the cut.

    I wanted to try something taller than the MRA screen, but shorter than the oe screen. The TT medium screen falls perfectly between those two and I was hoping that that would work out the best compromise. But I believe that the upright portion of the TT design interrupts the airflow badly causing turbulence to spill over the top of the screen at higher speeds. This is why I’ve experimented with cutting that edge off. I did actually think I should have just bought the short TT screen, but I’m now thinking TT have got the design wrong with that upright lip at the top, moreso now after reading your post, Rulle.

    Great mods, thanks for posting, gives one ideas for future changes. I like the wheels, I have a black AT, I do not know why Honda did not put the gold rims on that, would have looked so much better.

    I see you have the Stebel TM-80 horn - is this the high note, low note or magnum version?

    The horn is the low tone....I think. :confused:

    Bought a black rear seat off eBay to match in with my Sargent seat. Looks much better now tho’ I do kinda miss having the blue tops. Also nice paint protectors for the tops of the passenger grab handles.
