One of the wonderful features I found about the CTX1300 is how smooth the airflow is coming off the fairing and over the shorty screen. I rode with the shorty screen for a little over a month before my Honda tall screen was shipped to me. I always thought I would put the shorty back on when the temps stayed really warm but never did. Mostly 'cuz I was too lazy to switch it back for the short times we had high temps around here. I know it would be put on if I lived in hot areas of the country.

Yep, that lone state of Maine is where I owned my first mc.

Welcome Twosticks. Suspect the screen kinda depends on what you are used to. Definitely get more airflow with the shorty. Looks a little "sportier" in my opinion. Enjoy the riding season.

We ARE our choices.
