I was talking about "watching" it, not riding in it...

I don't watch marathons either but full respect for those who run them.

That was pretty good actually. Not that hard (from my point of view).

It was quite hot today. My friend Ligorien wanted to ride without.

Hey Guys,

could one of you do me a favor and post a photo from straight above the OEM handle bars down on the bars, just like the photo below?

Many thanks!

Just sold the Strom this weekend, so now I need an excuse to spend more $$$ on the ST (like I needed an excuse).
The one problem that still needs to be fixed is the buffeting. Did the Madstad bracket but it didn't make the same level of improvement that it did with the Strom. Not looking for complete quiet- just something close to what I had with the Suzuki.
Headed out West later this Summer and I doubt I can put in any 800- 1000 mile days the way it is now.

Wind deflectors, touring screen or both? I'm 5'9 and don't want a barn door screen.

Can't speak of the Madstad but the Wunderlich Tobinator works great for me with the stock screen, nice and quiet. 5'7" with a 30" inseam.

Did add the wind deflectors later, they help a bit in winter but the Tobinator makes the biggest difference.
