Hey Jerry,

Congrats on another successful trip around the sun! I like the card, but the bifocal windshield would be a WASTE, nothing within near range to view thru the shield, the gauges are IN FRONT of it! Sorry, my OCD/Ophthalmic knowledge showing!

I hope you had a great birthday today!

Cool card! But didn't know your C10 came equipped with those options...

It was great to finally meet you and get to ride with ya!
Looking forward to more rallies with you in the future.

Happy Birthday, my friend!

Happy birthday, Jerry! Missed it by -->.<-- that much.

That windshield would work great! The upper half'll give you a larger view down the road (Objects in windshield are farther than they appear!) and when you look down you can see if your front tire is still there.

Jerry, Hope you had a great day, you deserve it!
Yeah, we also need a "lighter" bike as we get older, too hard to push the big guys like the Roadkings or Wings when we forget to put in gas....
