Trialsguy, thanks for the suggestions, I have been looking online and am interested in the Vstream windshield. What would you suggest to keep a good amount of buffeting off the rider? I see they have the 14" tall, 15". 18" and 20". I am not a tall guy, but would like to have as good wind/weather protection as I can get with the Versys while riding. What size are you using? I would hate to buy one that is a bit too short!
I did extend my GS fenders, Cuts lots of road grime and will do the same to the versys!
To answer your question, why do I have a GS AND a Versys? Well, because I can? But kidding aside, you are correct. I ride year round, and ride a lot. I want to use the GS for dirt roads, longer rides like a PACNW trip this summer and Alaska next year and when my lil lady wants to 2up. The Versys is also for the lil lady to ride when she gets the urge. For me its my lightweight fun bike, and to keep the miles down on the xpensive beemr. I dont really plan to use the V for offroad riding. And lastly, I live in the foothills with many nearby winding canyons roads.
