  I didn't at first but due to the state of most of our roads I did get a fair bit of vibration to the screen and the rear braces sorted it.

You must mean , when you ride down the center of a two,lane
 road passing cars on the right of you while cars are coming the other way on the left
( it's called threading the needle  :062: ) or if you drive on the left it might be the opposite .

No, he means normal position riding and weaving around the millions of potholes in our deteriorating road network. Road users are the governments cashcow but little is fed back into road maintenance.  :151:

I have the 2012 screen and tried it without the braces. I put the braces back on the next day. The screen was quite a bit more wiggly without the braces. Figured Madstad put them in the design for a reason.

Agree with 'UncleGarry' the off road brace is all but a necessity..
