After making contact with Mike he made sure I had my GT Grand Touring shield for my trip in the morning... installed today with Madstad brackets.. making my Versys Tourer complete for this 4K trip...
Just finished a 2800+ trip..lot of freeway.. I can live with it but wish it had more protection.. full force air hit me about the armpit.. plenty of air on the chest..not a bad thing in hot weather... my helmet was fairly stable but had lots of noise from side air.. I haven't got the best helmet and ear plugs I had weren't too good.. I will be looking for another shield to use during the winter..How is the freeway buffetting with new screen?
I'm probably just too picky.. have been riding bikes with very big screens that had a big quiet still pocket and realize now that it's not going to happen on the Versys.. but I'm 5' 11" with 30" inseam.. I was running interstate 80-85 range when I was wanting more protection.. even at that speed I could run with my shield up on my full face helmet...I just need better ear plugs..been use to not wearing any... hope I didn't stop anyone from getting Mike's shield. I'm not going to keep trying others.. it's a keeper... and yes it is the GT with Madstad brackets...That doesn't sound very promising. I have one on order but am wondering if it is worth it now. How tall are you?
This is the GT version?
