    Hi, it's nice to be on here. I just bought a 2016 Triumph America and I love it, check out the pics. I've been riding for nine years and usually do a ride every week if I can, depending on the weather. I'd like to do some mods to my bike, starting with a windscreen, then some pipes and a single seat. But I need some advice on the windscreens, which generally are bloody ugly. But I found a Burly Brand Outlaw Fairing - B10-0000 that I think looks ok. Would it fit my bike? Do any of you have one or could suggest something similar? If anyone has suggestions on single seats, I'd love some links or details on those as well. Cheers.

    Gidday and welcome.

    I really wanted an America or the Thunderbird, but I wanted a new bike and, unfortunately, they are no longer produced. I bought a new, leftover 2018 Speedmaster in 2020. Love it.

    I ride year-round. Winters here in southern New Jersey aren't brutal, but I wanted a tall, full screen. The Triumph brand was really expensive. I bought a Madstad, detachable shield. Well made, easy on and easy off for summer riding and it does the job at about 2/3 the price of the Triumph brand.

    Good luck.

    Edit: I forgot to add that initial installation is just a bit tricky. Also, the one I got is adjustable. Up and down about 4" and, you can change the angle as well.

    Ive got a Dart Merlin on my Speedmaster and love it. Check out their website (Dart) for clear, smoked or other options.

    They probably do a kit for your specific bike.

    Thanks so much for the welcome, and I appreciate the options you've given me for the windscreen. I'll be checking them out. Ride safe peeps. It's a public holiday tomorrow for Australia Day, so I'll be riding, and the weather is going to be perfect. :p:heart:

    WELCOME! From Michigan USA.
    I'll be installing a madstad on my bonnevile for all the reasons mentioned above. Plus they are engineered to reduce buffeting by allowing a little air to flow under the windshield.

    Greetings and welcome to the forum, @Melbs Girl! Nice to see another woman on the forum. Your bike is a beauty and the mods you're looking to make sound good. For more advice on mods of your model you might want to check out this forum within The Triumph Forum. Happy riding and please share more photos of your bike and your rides with us!

    Hi, if your out around Elizabeth St I would check out some of the motorbike dealers there, I seem to remember that was my place to head to when I would travel in from Geelong.
