Take Risks, Taste Adventure

And as he crossed into Argentina, Kane experienced the best two days of the journey.

“I was riding through the desert and a shooting star the size of a golf ball flew across the sky. It lit the whole sky. It was amazing,” he says. “The next day I was heading to Rosario and there was a storm brewing in front of me. It became impossible to continue on my road into the mountains as the wind picked up, tree trunks were being blown around, and I lost my gloves.

“I thought I would die if I continued into the storm, so I parked my bike inside an open bus shelter, put the cover on my bike and tried to sleep. At 2am I woke up and I was in the heart of it. There were about 30 lightning strikes around me and trees being blown down – I had to sleep on the bike, soaking wet, it was crazy. The power of it was amazing.”

The next day, having survived the storm and perhaps feeling a little too invincible, two dogs bolted in front of him on the motorway. “I hit one, skidded about 50 metres, my panniers came off and my gear shift lever snapped,” he says.

So didn’t the constant risk bother the 23-year-old? “Not once,” he says. “Every time it happened I was happy – the bike might have been hurt, but I always found a solution to fix it. You have to take risks to have an adventure. I tore a muscle in my back in Ecuador and couldn’t stand or breathe, but I’d already been stamped out of the country so had to leave. So I went to hospital, got a shot of painkiller and then rode for another four hours.

“Calculated risks are part of the trip – it’s adrenaline,” he says. “I’ve seen so many amazing things, and I’m grateful. I’ve got good reflexes, but there were some pretty close shaves.”

How easy is it to fit?

Very easy. You'll need a couple of spanners or Allen keys, twenty minutes and that's it. The screen uses the standard headlamp brackets and if it's carefully fitted, you won't even need to readjust the headlamp. Please note that the screen may not fit some bikes with aftermarket instruments - please enquire before ordering.

Do you do a tinted/coloured version?

You have the choice of the standard light neutral tint as standard, or a darker tint. In addition, we can supply opaque black by special order. For those who want to paint the screen, we can supply it in opaque grey ABS, suitable for automotive paint.

Do you sell through dealers?

We have a network of good, reliable dealers. We are always looking to expand our network - if you are a regular dealer or distributor and are interested in our products, please get in touch.

It looks quite small - how much protection does it give?

A surprising amount. That said, it's not a full touring screen, so please don't expect it to perform like a Honda Pan European! When you're riding a naked bike, your body provides a big target for wind blast. Flyscreens work by taking most of the wind from this area, giving your body an easier time. You still get wind around the helmet area (but that's why you bought the bike, yes?), but you don't get the fatigue in the same way.

I bought a naked bike because I prefer them. So why do I need a screen?

Firstly, the Dart flyscreen makes 80mph cruising more comfortable, by relieving the rider's chest of wind. The flyscreen improves the airflow around the instruments, and leaves a cone of still air, reducing neck and back ache on long runs.
Secondly, it looks good. Taking inspiration from classic British racing bikes from the 50's and 60's, the Dart gives your bike that classic finishing touch.

What models are covered?

Models are shown above - click on the link for details and to purchase. We're expanding the model range all the time, but slowly. We only make a limited range because for us it's essential that the screen looks perfect on the bike - if it doesn't suit, we won't make it.
