Currently have a 2010 Z1000 and that was my first transition out of sport-bikes. However, lately, I seem to get bothered on interstate rides with the tach at 5K + around the 75-80mph range. Furthermore, the wind buffeting is bothersome.

Might be considering trading her in for a Versys 1000.

Thoughts, comments welcome.

The Versys would be a great bike for Highway riding.

Question: How do you get wind buffeting on a Naked bike?

I love being in the clean air when riding my Naked bikes. You do have to have on tight fitting gear and a good aerodynamic helmet.

The larger windscreens are more prone to creating a buffeting situation. The wrong shield can actually blur your vision from the buffeting.

The buffeting was from the previous shield I had (which I sold). I went back to stock.
I went and looked at one today during lunch. I am not fond of the "all black". I kinda want to see the Orange.

Furthermore, being just the way I am, has anyone already added the Z1000 lower fairing to their Versys? I know it will fit and I think it would look great. Just a thought.

Jose:)
