geeeee whiz, ya want to see more V649HP photos from fantasy land? no problem, coming right up...or maybe i'll just link them to ADVrider.
yeah, "old school deal", that's a good description of touring on an unfaired bike. in the roughly 100 year history of the motorcycle, it's only relatively recently that riders have become obsessed with wind management. partly rider preference, partly fueled by the near infinite choices in aftermarket screens and accessories, the tweaking continues. fine with me, riders prep their bikes as they see fit.
creating a custom faired Versys was just a design/fabrication exercise, not something i felt was necessary for long range touring. i'll get a chance to see how it works out, but i suspect things will be just fine. i am, however, leaning towards stark naked on the next Versys build.
maybe more naked than one of the old naked Versys which is currently in SD getting a sidecar rig for the upcoming riding season.
old school Versys, no wind management, and tours just fine...
