Hand Deflectors for my Scout Sixty

These are the National Cycle Hand Deflectors for the Scout and Scout Sixty made to keep your hands safe and warm. Now, I know that you might be hesitant on buying a pair of these for your bike and that it will not hold up to the harsh winds of the road. But let me assure you that if you like to ride in the winter or under wet conditions this is the product for you.

I ordered a pair of these hand deflectors for my 2016 Indian scout sixty because short of wearing my heated gloves my hands get cold in the winter while riding. I know this last winter I wish I had thought of buying these sooner but I did not. They would have cut down on the cold wind and kept my hands warmer and made my life better for riding.

Now I know that spring is here and summer is next and the weather will just be nice enough not to use them. But, these motorcycle parts accessories for my scout sixty will keep my hands safe from any road debris, dry in the rain and eleveat hand fatigue.

The reason I went with National Cycle brand is that I own a 2-up windshield and it works in all types of wind and weather conditions. I love this company so much that I ordered a smaller windshield for the summer that will fit all the same hardware of my 2-up windshield. I recommend windshields from National Cycle for motorcycles they are in my opinion some of the best out there.

Wind Chill Factor on Bike
Wind Chill Factor Chart

 

Here is a wind chill factor chart that describes the effects of the wind on your hands while riding. So, if you ride your motorcycle on the highway at 60 MPH and the temperature is 50 degrees it will feel like 39 degrees. This I know is true because living here in North Dakota I have gone out in 40 degree weather and it has felt like 25 degrees. And my head, torso and arms were warm due to the 2-up windshield but my hands were cold and miserable. But, not anymore.

SwitchBlade Chopped Quick Release Windshield

So, I currently ride around with my 2-up Switchblade windshield for the last 2 riding seasons and it is awesome. I have at times riden in such a relaxed state on my scout sixty that my eyes drop below the top of the windshield and this sometimes becomes a problem. I then began thinking how to lower the windshield to make the bike look better and the ride more enjoyable and looked once again to National Cycle and found the chopped quick release windshield.

Quick Release Shorty

Discovered that they made a switchblade chopped quick release windshield and I could use the existing hardware from my other windshield. Both are quick release and both made durable and tough. I called up National Cycle because I had the 2-up and spoke to them about my situation and he told me I could purchase just the windshield for $122.95 from them. This was awesome news because then I could buy a smaller windshield but not break the bank.

Note: If you do not have the hardware you can buy the whole shield on amazon for $242.95

The strength of the windshield

I received the Shorty windshield and installed it as well as the hand grips and the difference is night and day. I mean when I went for a ride I could see over the top of the windshield even when relaxed and the buffeting on the helmet is nominal. Now I enjoy the riding with more field of vision and have my hands protected from the debris and weather.

10 Thoughts to “Motorcycle Parts Accessories-For My Scout Sixty

  1. I’ve always wanted to get a motorcycle. This post really got me thinking of finally doing it. I’m definitely a beginner on this but I’m really hoping to go learn and become an expert on this. If I do, then I’ll be checking this website as often as I kind to learn. Thank you for the content, I actually think is really helpful for people interested in motorcycles, I have a question for you, what motorcycle would you recommend for a beginner? 

    1. Isabel, If you have always wanted to get a motorcycle then the first place you should begin is at The Harley Davidson Riding Academy here they will teach you everything you need to know about riding. It is a 3 day course and by day 3 you are taking the test for your motorcycle license. You should definitely start there, just visit your nearest Harley Davidson dealer and they will get you started. And I would recommend a 500cc or 750cc motorcycle to begin with and it should be used because in case you dropped it you won’t feel as bad. Always start small and then work up.

      Thanks and Good luck,

      JesusB

  3. These two accessories are definitely worth the investment just for the cool factor I think. National Cycle makes some excellent products and their reputation is really good. The hand deflectors are the perfect add-on for all year riding comfort, and the switchblade chopped quick release windshield just fits well with the bike.

    The prices are also very reasonable I think. I expected to have to pay much more honestly, so that was a pleasant surprise. I definitely will be adding these soon to my bike, as the season is here once again, and I am looking forward to getting back on the road.

    Great and to the point review of these National Cycle accessories, I know what I am getting this week. I look forward to seeing them mounted and even more, doing some weekend rides too. Good stuff! Thanks again…

  5. Hello Jesus,

    I learned a lot by reading your effective post about Motorcycle Parts Accessories. Most probably this is a review I was looking for. When it was rush to turn left side rear-view mirror of my scout has broken. The features are Hand Deflectors just amazing.
    But I was not interested in the windshield so long. Because the ones found here are quite big in size. I think those are backdated. After coming here Switch Blade Chopped Quick Release Windshield looks great. I hope it protects the wind from the direct push and stylish as well. Thank you so much for the excellent review.

    Best wishes,
    Ranao
