Low's the way to go!
I'm seriously thinking about to trade my 640Adv for a Goldwing ... anyone interested?
Ok, here goes my own serious note, B-Rod: I would never think about mounting a tall windshield on my XR400R enduro bike, but ... the 640Adv is my dualsporter ... and this is like every issue related to the on-road/off-road dilema ... My real scenario has an unavoidable on-road component, and hundreds of kms at high speed, many times with windy weather ... Yes, I declined I bit of my off-road spirit for a little comfort sake !!!

I understand your feeling, I really do. But in a few months I will be riding a 10.000kms round to Machu Pichu, and that's a lot of kms per day. Please forgive my windshield sin, please!
