My windshield has been straight busted for about a month now. There was a small crack in the corner when I bought it from a random used car lot a few years ago, and it was pretty easy to ignore. So that's what I did. Ignore it. Then one day I was riding along, minding my own business, and a rock ricochets off the truck in front of me and hits my windshield - dead center where it cannot be ignored. I tried to ignore it anyway, but overnight the tiny blob evolved into a wiry crack from the driver's side to the passenger's side. Believe it or not, I still tried to ignore it. Until I came back from a weekend in Florida and the original crack in the corner had also expanded.

Today, I finally bit the bullet and got it replaced, thanks to a friends of a friend who knew a guy who knew a guy. It almost feels weird riding around with no obstructions in my view, but I could get used to this!

  1. Oh gosh I feel you on the windshield crack situation. When I got mine cracked I was going to ignore, but my mom warned me that they spread FAST! (Especially in hot weather). So I went to get it fixed.

    Trust me without my mom I would ignore it. Like my tires that probably need to be replaced, yeah I'm still in the 'ignore phase' on that issue right now lol.
