Here's a photo of the bike of the new windshield:
|Palmer Windshield and Touratech Tankbag|
I'm fairly happy with the windshield right now, but it might not be the end for this topic.
As you can also see in the photo above, I bought a Touratech (Kahedo) tank bag. And as you will also certainly remember I absolutely hate Touratech USA. I'm kind of okay with Touratech Germany though (I just wish they had a reasonable "foreign shop policy") and therefore, when I was in Germany last week I bought this bag there.
The result: I paid just a bit more than half of the US price in Germany.
The tank bag is very high quality, solidly made, made in Germany by Kahedo. It's a midsize bag that doesn't get in the way when I'm on the bike but still has a decent and usable size, it's also expandable another ~ 10cm or so, has two side pockets, a little bungee on the rear for stuffing gloves or so while at a stop, a good sized handle and a map pocket that can actually be used for a map. The map pocket is attached by velcro and I can easily take it off, the bag itself is attached with two straps in the front that can stay on the bike all the time and a velcro patch that is attached to the tank with an adhesive patch and for stable attachment is hooked around the edge of the tank under the seat. It works great so far and seems very usable. On and off in about 10 seconds, no straps hanging around, nothing around the tank opening that gets in the way when filling the tank. So far so good, real world experience and review to follow.

Please ignore the little bit weird colors in the photos. I accidentally shot them with the white balance set to "Tungsten" and then corrected later as good as possible in Aperture as I was plain to lazy to get the bike out again ...
