How about driving the bike in the rain?
Only motorcyclists know why dogs stick their head out the car window.

Better then I expected. When I say torrential, I mean mud rivers running across the road!
I was impressed with the standard screen, the shape of it seemed to divert the water either side of me rather then straight to my visor which made a nice change!
Just out on a run this morning, got up like a kid at Xmas, saw it was dry. 100miles done already!

The truth is that it is a great motorcycle, as much as for the cold, heat and rain, when it rains, I hardly get wet.

Try this product that shows the video, it is a great invention, the water disappears from the screen as if it were a miracle.

Rain-X manufacture a number of different products.

WARNING DO NOT use Rain-X "GLASS" on Plastic motorcycle screens, or visors.

This Warning from Rain-X's own web site :

Q : Can it be used on transparent plastics ?
A : Rain-X Rain Repellent it not generally suitable for use on plastics.
The increasing variety of various coatings applied to plastics makes it impossible to pre-test
for compatibility under all conditions, and users should satisfy themselves by treating an area
outside the normal area of vision. Please note that constant, repetitive use should be avoided
due to the possible formation of stress cracking, especially on clear, curved sections,
however, Rain-X Plastic Water Repellent is suitable for use on plastics.

Q : Can it be used on motorcycle helmets or windscreens ?
A : Only Rain-X Plastic Water Repellent should be used on motorcycle helmets and windscreens.

Rain-X "PLASTIC" is the product to use on the Trophy Screen, and your helmet visor :
