Hey everyone new to the forum . I have a 2008 Harley Sportster 1200r i'm thinking of trading for a 09 Versys . been riding for 35 years owned tons of bikes lately been riding harleys but have the itch for something else . Had a vstrom 1000 awhile back and really did'nt like it that much . Was a good bike but had so much buffeting at my helment tryed different shields madstad bracket still sucked . Does the versys have this problem ?

I don't have that problem with the Givi shield installed, but some people do. There are a number of shields available should prevent you from having a problem with buffeting.

I bought a motorcycle because my wife said that I couldn't! Now I have two and she still says I can't have another one!

Some helmets can also be more suceptable to buffeting than others

I had a 883r and a nightster. I sold both and bought a 2010 v. It was by far the best move u ever made.

Keep the Sporty if you can. It's nice to switch bikes depending on the mood.
