Right off the bat, I logged a 1000-mile shakedown cruise on the thing (to the Pacific Northwest) so I was in fine position to evaluate what changes were needed. First of all, a friggin' shield! But I definitely didn't want to muck up the bike's lines with touring accoutrements, so it had to be detachable. Luckily, Star supplied me with one of its short-rise, in-house units, which gave just enough protection to keep wayward trash off, yet wasn't so tall as to gum up my line of sight with a piece of road debris-attracting plastic. I plan on testing a few others like it, to see how the quick detach systems compare. Look for stuff from National Cycle, SporTech, Memphis Shades and the like.
