I started to like 2-stroke engines in 2001, just before the introduction of the first 4-stroke MotoGP bikes.

Pete, something I've been going to ask for a while but keep forgetting .

Do you have any reflection or glare from your headlight as it shines through the windscreen ?

Having the headlamp behind the windscreen doesn't really look so good...
