Hoping for some info?...I am looking into buying the versys and I previously had a vstrom and it was the worst bike I ever owned.Now that was mostly due to the brutal wind turbulence and buffeting that thing made with the poor fairing/shield. Nothing I tried or bought really worked to help it except just removing the shield, which worked the best, but even uglier.Totally ruined the riding as I had other bikes that didnt do this, and to put up with it , no way! gone..
Looking into the v as a 2 -up inexpensive, cheap to run roadtripper and like what i see so far!
What i would like to know is how does this one work stock?
AS in..do you get clean air flow with the stock shield? Just to clarify what i mean...clean air is not the same as buffeting and turbulence..clean air is what i get on my sportbikes. same as a naked with no shield..just smooth wind..I like the wind, neck up is ok,just clean and smooth. I like to be able to keep my glass's on and visor open when i ride speed limit. wind is fine.. I can on my other bikes. Cruisers and vstroms, no,
so dont want anything that does that to me..
Of course the dealers all claim it is clean air, not like the stroms, (yes i had one..nightmare)but what else would they say?
I am not looking to get outa the wind, I dont want to have to put a acre of plastic on it, no thanks..I am just hoping it works good as is...
Reason Im asking is nearest dealer with a demo is 3 hrs away...Local guys have em in the crate, The rest of the bike I know what to expect..Kinda a smaller prettier vstrom thing..
So appreciate any info on the stock shield airflow is appreciated!
