Two little Holes
..that's what Ricky made at the bottom of the Givi screen on my brother in law's GS (which he keeps in my garage). Ricky drilled these holes to deal with buffeting he experienced while testing some final drive mods he had made to the bike. After the dremel treatment, the bike just sat there unridden for a while, because my brother in law was traveling on Coast Guard duty (damn the terrroists).
Flip forward a few weeks. The hydraulic ABS pump on my own GS (which has a stock screen) failed (naturally at the 40,000 mile mark), giving me a chance to ride my brother in law's bike for two weeks. First time on the freeway: "WTF... Where's all the noise? Why is my helmet not being tossed around like a Hank Aaron bobble head doll on the dash of Chevy low rider? Surely, it can't be from those two little holes!" I had ridden this bike before, with an "undrilled Givi," and did not notice a huge difference between the undrilled Givi and my stock screen. I'm back on my own bike now, and I literally thought I forgot my earplugs first time out. I **** you not, the difference is unfrigginbelievable. The only time you'll have more fun with two little holes is.....(sorry that's for JoMomma).
