Managed at last to put enough miles on the Forza to qualify for the First Service; 596 - superb judgement!

It's been a difficult period, chest-wise, and the wind has been stronger than I care to ride in for pleasure so it's been a long process, nearly five months.

The service was not cheap but it's done now; I feel well looked-after by Newcastle Motorcycles so it's worth it.

I had a long chat with Paul, the salesman, about hand-guards, muffs, heated grips and heated gloves; the arthritis in my hands is progressing rather quickly so I want to get the most appropriate device to relieve the discomfort. I like muffs but there are so many buttons on the left-hand side of the bars I want to be able to see them.

We shall see.

I used these on a bike a few years back. Very easy to fit and they do keep the wind off your paws.

Thanks, Steve.
I adapted a pair of motorcycle ones for my first Silverwing; they were very good.
I've tracked down three different Forza-specific guards, one of which is Givi, of course.
I'm having a think. Wink

Here's the post in which I described the handguards:

My hands will soon be 83 yrs old---but they have worked for 67 years of riding and over 1.4 million miles. Protecting them important----muffs do not work for me, too dangerous. Just had tune up operation on right hand---trigger finger ring finger, middle finger done 15 years ago----upcoming removal of cyst on left wrist. Bike riding I always wear gloves.mitts of some type---you probably will not die of hand injury, but it sure hurts getting well. For rain/cold I find cheap ski gloves under Aerostich over mitts--3 finger good in rain or cold. Old Belstaff/Barbour over mitts work, too...but they can be a little slippery.
New bike/scooter I always add sponge over grips---increase diameter, reduce shocks, last about 30,000 miles-----Heated grips probably should come standard on all 2 wheelers---I have only ridden BMW with them=worked! Hand comfort important, really so as you get older!

Thank you, John. I will re-read and digest what you say. Smile

Hi Mike,

I keep looking at the Givi hand wind deflectors plus a taller screen.

Getting a little bit of buffeting when my helmet is flipped up but nothing too bad, just think the taller screen will make it just right without having to duck down a little.

First Service 3ecba310

I originally had these Puig handlebar mounted wind deflectors on my Forza along with the stock Honda screen and Wunderlich screen top wind deflector.

They were fitted in anticipation of Puig bringing out a taller touring screen soon afterwards to compliment them.

I eventually got fed up waiting for the Puig screen and ordered the newly released Givi high screen from Italy instead. It's not that much taller or wider but it really does the job. Then when Givi brought out the matching bodywork mounted wind deflectors, I removed the Puig hand guards and fitted the Givi ones.

Thinking about it now, I'd pretty much added all the accessories and useful bits to my Forza in the first nine months of ownership.

Very nice, attractive and well made.

Off topic about 30 years ago had A Suzuki RMX 250 with factory hand guards hit a large rock and crashed on right side minor tip over. I popped it in neutral still running and picked it up dropped it in gear and wheeled away only to find the front brake was engaged from it pushed against lever. Well that went well down I went again.  Fun times on dirt bikes.

For me, it's definitely worth having the few extra centimetres, Jamie.
As I said elsewhere, the height of the original screen is just on the cusp of buffeting or not for me.

My Silverwing has a Cee Bailey windshield on it. I measured it and they custom made it. Works perfect, sadly they no longer make windscreens for bikes.

Now my Forza came with the "shorty" windshield...as my dad would have said "it is useless as t*ts on a bull". I purchased a Givi unit and when I get to my summer place it will be installed! Can't wait.
