    Just a huge public thank you to @cowboyuptex !!!

    He very generously offered me a fly screen when I was looking at the bikebandit deal that wouldn’t ship to the UK. But here’s the thing, wouldn’t take a cent off me, posted it at his expense (though I will find a way to pay him back) and it arrived today and is spot on!!!

    Just wanted to say thank you for your generosity, karma will reward you brother!!

    I had the same problem with another member here. I resolved the issue by paying into a charity of his choice the approximate postage costs. A win win win situation all round. The generosity of the folks on this here forum is astounding, it gives faith in humanity!!

    That is a fantastic idea, @cowboyuptex can you nominate a charity please?

    And you are bang on, renews your faith in humanity, though I have to say I have rarely seen it lacking in bikers!

    So I did some digging and this VFW charity looks like a worthy cause and @cowboyuptex is too shy to nominate :cool:, quite a few ex-forces guys on here as well so did this:

    Thank you for your donation to the VFW!
    We have received your donation and appreciate your concern and generosity for America's veterans, service members and their families. Please print the following for your records:

    Transaction Summary

    First Name: Tim
    Last Name: ******
    Street 1: ********
    City: ********
    State/Province: *****
    Zip Code: ********

    Amount: $175.00 (something for the screen plus $75 postage).

    And if I am EVER near Iowa, I am buying you a beer.
