It's interesting because my bike also came from Chicago. I wonder if it was the same dealer.
Smoked windscreen is stock as well. I got my Adv from TJs Cycle in Austin, TX... did a fly/ride to get back home via San Antonio, Houston, Galveston, Baton Rouge, Vicksburg, Tupelo, St. Lous and then back to Chicago. My local dealer is MCC in Villa Park and they're the ones who speculated when I got it that it was an early US model or a Euro model that snuck through. Aside from the Givi bags & Corbin seat it's always remained stock though I do have a Keihin FCR sitting on a shelf I've beern wanting to try (maybe for $ale??) ... I have them on my '96 Guzzi Sport 1100 and it transformed the bike's power delivery.
