    As you are considering a vented jacket to keep you cool you don't want a screen as that'll keep the breeze off of you.

    There's never a need for a gear indicator as you can feel if the bike is in the right gear; I've never understood the point of these.

    You'll struggle to get a high quality, properly armoured, vented summer jacket for £100, but the good news is that as you#ve not fitted a screen you'll not need it, as long as you leave to cuffs of your leather open and let the zip at the front hang open a little.

    I vote you spend it on petrol - get out and do some riding!

    I have a fuel end can with the link pipe, clamp and bracket for your speed triple at £70 if you are interested, its in great condition.

    Beer, fine whisky/whiskey and or some poteen
    Or if it has to be bike related - coffee and a de-catted link pipe (if that can be had for a ton)

    Something else, coffee. Summer is a week old now so it’s probably coming to an end so no need for a mesh jacket. With your elevated consciousness from the high levels of caffeine in your system you’ll always know what gear you’re in and you won’t want a screen because you’ll need the extra wind to cool you down.
    B.t.w. every time I see your post it catches me off guard cause it’s my name too and for a brief second I think it’s me. So just in case you are me let’s get the screen, Highway riding on a speed is too much of a core workout for me without a screen.

    I voted for the gear indicator. I really miss the gear indicators that my old Suzuki's had in their clocks. So often I find myself kicking up convinced I can't be in sixth yet as I'm only doing 125mph and I'm near the bleedin' red line!

    Sorry, but I am me too. You know those wee quiet moments when you fade out for a while - that's me going off to post

    Thank you for all your help and input everyone. All valid and respected opinions (mostly).

    There is a fairly even split between gear indicator, jacket, and something else.

    Alas, all I know is....I am not going to get a screen!

    Bless you all, and thank you!!
