Of course not. Why would anybody want that?

so you can put the bike cover on it without stressing the extended windshield.  Because I only put it up if it is raining or a cold wind is hitting my neck.  Because an extended windshield makes the bike look dorky and I don't want to walk out to a dorky looking bike.

Remember when the 08's came out?  The sun was being magnified through the screen and melting/striping the cluster.  I've got a bit of a mark on mine that I attribute to the screen.  I think the recommendation (somewhere?) was to retract the screen when it was parked.  I don't remember to do that 3/4s of the time.  Quite frankly, I'm lucky to even find my bike again after I park it.

For the life of me I couldn't figure out how the previous owner managed to slightly melt the speedo needle!!!!
I guess I'll keep the auto down function.

Then it doesn't go down automatically on ignition turn off, now does it?  :)

Plus, the Generation 2 makes fantastic pancakes, saves the polar bears and reduces the deficit in the health system  ::)
So many, many, many, many advantages of this completely new generation. Life shattering, me says. Come to think of it, I'll get rid of that vintage D600 and get the all new D610 Nikon just brought out. Now THAT will improve my pictures.

Education is important. Riding my bike is importanter.
