KLR Dash Thoughts

So, right now, I find myself switching back and forth between my stock windscreen and my giant Cee Bailey windscreen depending on weather.
I hate how the Cee Bailey looks. It makes me feel like an old man or a cop or something. I just really dislike the look, which I know is stupid. But, we all ride to feel good so there's that.
So, onto my real topic.
I have been shopping around for solutions and ran across this set up. http://www.klrdash.com
I love the concept, extra space and look, especially when mixed with the Zero Gravity windscreen.
So, any thoughts, experiences, etc would be grand. Thnx.

Now that's pretty interesting. I have nothing to put on my "dash", but the airflow change could be dope. It could not. What makes me wonder is if they focused more on the dash aspect than the windshield aspect. I want to try one.

It's a great concept but from all of the reviews I've read on the dash, it needs additional bracing to keep the vibration down. Those complaining about the vibes added additional bracing which took care of it. Looks great! I plan to come up with my own version this spring to incorporate with the Cee Baileys adjustable touring screen.

I have the windshield risers sold by the klrdash site on my bike. I really like the added height and steeper angle it gives my stock windshield. I'm 6'2.5 tall and the windblast now hits around my forehead instead of my neck. For me, the stock windshield (09) is fine with the risers. I use the open space that would be filled with the klrdash to hold a small storage bag.
