Not cheap but I love my Renazco in vinyl on my 640, not quite the same but the original seat was no treat either

I am 6' and have Sargent Seat and Laminar Lip.
Both work great and the Lip is fairly inexpensive.

I put a Bailey windshield on at the dealership when I bought it. Never had issues with wind after that. I have had issues with the seat, but found that when the bike is loaded with a hundred pounds or more of luggage and junk on the back, the angle of the seat changes enough that it is tolerable. This was on multiple single day trips between Denver and St. Louis. I also had issues with handlebar buzz, but there is a post around here about filling the handlebar with nails and mastic that really did the trick for that problem. I also put the stock handlebar guards on. I don't have any issues with wind on the hands at all with them, and they have saved me bent control levers on my frequent, uh, tipovers.

Which Sargent did you go with, the enduro or the touring?

I like the idea of the touring for long distance comfort, but I will do a lot of off road and will need to stand comfortably.

I am using the AeroFlow windscreen and it gives good protection for longer rides. I replaced the stock seat with the BMW comfort seat. It is better than the stock seat but regular breaks are required.
