I love being behind a fairing all year round. It keeps the rain, bugs, and birds off of me and my gear in the summer. Especially the bugs.

They also make it much easier to stay on the bike at warp speed.

I like a small windscreen all year round although I "can" live without it in the summer. Keeps the bugs out of the teeth in the summer and keeps the cold wind blast at bay in the winter.

And you can put your legs up on top of the GS cylinders for warmth. You can usually smell your pants burning just before the heat gets a little too intense unless it's really windy
