After my first 1000 mile Trip I felt my V650 LT did fantastic but even with the 1.5 inch risers on & sitting far back on the seat my arms were straight/ over extended but sitting forward was fine,I was leaning back against my camping gear strapped on my rear seat. With my Puig Touring windscreen at mid height wind protection was great. As for the foot pegs My knees started to hurt & think the pegs need to be lowered or I need to install some Highway Pegs.I used a AirHawk seat cushion so no butt issue. With close to 85 Lbs of camping gear no problem with performance just a little heavy in towns at stop lights after being on the roads for several hundred miles. MPG was in the low to mid 50 mpg at speeds 65-75 mph. So for my next trip I’m going to install highway pegs & not taking camping gear ,will stay in motels or rent a cabin at finial destination.Also thinking rolling handlebars backwards a little. The Versys 650 is so far the best Bike I’ve owned for long trips so far out of the last 5 bikes. P.s. I used a Go Cruz throttle lock & it was Great, I got to where I was resting a couple of fingers on the stock LT wind Guard bracket’s. That was the most relaxed my Hands have” EVER” been.
