i have been caught out a time or 2 with the dark shield. I have a pair of clear safety glasses in the tailpiece that i can put on and leave the shield up.
I have been lately just carrying my other helmet on the lock and just swap helmets if it gets dark. The problems i have at night with the dark shield is not the cars but any animals or even a car that might not have their lights on. stuff like that.
later

i dont do over 160. I leave that to you.

I can see at night good enough to top out my 600 and not worry.. with headlights and dark visor thats a better way of saying it.

so how fast does this 14 go?

so your saying .. basically.. the 1000rr and the gixxa 1k and the busa and the zx14 and the R1 and all them are going to be the same on the top.... well .. why not get the one that is easiest to change the top speed on.. and make it to where it will redline 5th gear and then sprocket the hoe back down to 190 so you have mean take off.. and then you can have a 1000 that is faster than a stock zx14.. ??? right?
