Written as a true gentleman, indeed. I thought perhaps you might have implied all-weather protection but was unsure.
Now that I can spin the engine to a whopping 6000rpm, I took the Versys on the highway. In metro Atlanta, the actual—not posted—speed limit is close to 80mph. I was very happy with the Versys' wind protection, though upon reflection, taller folks might not enjoy to wind blast. I am used to it and found the stock fairing does a very effective job of dissipating high-speed wind blast. I have the Kawasaki large screen, too, and will see what that is like soon.
I do not know of any commercially available lowers for the Versys, but nice side crash guards are available which might lend themselves to mounting a generic lower shield.
