Cool2 F800gs...Touring screens? you got one ? Lets us see um!

Things are moving along...with the GS project. Since I dished my seat out (now is sit about 1" and 1/2" lower) the wind is hitting me in the helmet causing more noise. I am also thinking spoiler?

I've got the Touratech spoiler and it helps a lot. But still for touring you might want a bit more... I'm going to keep an eye out on this thread to see what people have been doing.

By the way... do you like the Givi guards???? i'm thinking either those or the Hepco Becker... the Givi's might look a bit too wide though????? plus more than likely I will be adding foldaway highway pegs to the guards too.

The screen you have shown for your F800GS, can you please tell me how much taller it is than the stock screen ? Also any ideas/weblinks on where I can get one ?

Has it proven much better than the stock screen ?

Here's some ideas and a weblink of a F800GS enhanced windshield: http://www.ceebaileys.com/bmw/650_800gs_twin_ehws.htm

There's also this standard one too: http://www.ceebaileys.com/bmw/650gs_twin_ws.html

Hope this helps! You can PM if you have any questions

yes they are perfect for me! And i can kick up the legs!...and I did not want to spend too much. Also on a scale of 1 10 10 being hard core off roading I am about 7. So I am spending a little less on the protection and a little more on comfort. I just ordered a Corbin seat. I only ride the great wild west once a year.

HTC, you're right about the helmet noise. Even as short as I am, with the BMW touring screen and the factory low seat (I think the ergos are the same for the 650 and 800), it's pretty loud. And that comes after 15 years around Navy jets and 20+ years of going to punk rock shows!

McD, Do you like the side wind deflectors? I'm setting up my 650 for all-weather combat commuting and wanted to see how other folks like 'em and if they're worth the cost. I put the nose on mine, too. It really completes the look IMO.

You may want to check out the SW motech. They protect more of the plastice and already have brace for attaching highway pegs.

Hard to see I know but if you squint , you can see the pegs.

I ended up going with the Touratech guards with the Givi highway pegs (gyped em on). Also went with the Powerbronze screen. Just put on TKC 80s today! wooooo hooooooooooooo. In desperate need of a skid plate though :(

I can't find that windscreen that's on your bike in this picture. It's not on Powerbronze's website.
