    Hello folks, another issue I came across that puzzles me. My windshield (original Touring) looks fogged up. When cleaning it with water/microfibre towel the haze is gone for a short period only (few minutes). Temperatur and humidity change make no difference as is standing still or riding. Wonder if another rider encountered that issue. If you do, let me know how you got it clear again. THX for any feedback.

    I use "cat crap" on my helmet visor. That stops the fogging on that and I imagine the screen is of a similar material.

    My touring windscreen did the same. I believe it is age related as it is close on 5 years old and simple cleaning with a micro fibre towel doesn't seem to clean it fully.

    I removed the shield and washed it thoroughly in the bathtub with a mild cleaner until squeaky clean. I then polished it with Meguiers PlastX and it came up like new. Hopefully it will stay like this for a while but cleaning and polishing is no biggie.
