Welcome to the forum.

Whenever I hear about Recife, I think about the fact that the Second World War truly had the world as its scope. My dad spent his service in the US Navy in Recife - repairing anti-submarine aircraft.

Planning to add in accessories?

I checked out Wiki on Recife, it's a beautiful city. Nice bike and nice city.

2daMax,

I would like to test the Tourer shield. After this, I'll think about the Tourer hand guards.
Maybe hard side bags for my next vacations trip, because the Givi 45l top case is not enough for my wife.

welcome neighbours from the north! I have purchased the kappa windshield and the original handguards and i can tell you it is a must. The difference on the road is important, and the protection feels good, specially at high speed. Regards from Montevideo!

Parabems! I have been to Brazil many times and always thought how perfect the Versys would be in your country. When in Brazil, I mainly go to Salvador, Fiera de Santana and the surrounding areas. I have only been to Recife once when flying home- such a beautiful city.

At logo!

Hi 2daMax

Yes Im planning to put handguards and a new windshield, maybe de tourer shield. With original the wind goes directly to my helmet, above 80mph
its not so comfortable.

I agree with febeme, this may increase the protection at high speed.

Side cases I think I will not use for while, maybe a tank bag instead.

And here in Recife there s a lot more to see, just wait for more pics.
