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.

The MRA screen is small and also has the flip thing that works real well. The good thing is that you can push the flip down whilst riding if you need more air or for extra off road visibility. Available from Twisted throttle. Linked with an adjustable bracket it is perfect for us (the wife no longer gets head turbulence with it).

I use the same setup and it works very well for me. 5'11"/ 30 inch inseam.

Which crash bar is that with the ACD plate?
I got the same set up with the no screen = best solution for me at the moment.

Looks like an Altrider. http://www.altrider.com/altrider-cra...t1200z/pid/600

I think Tabasco may be a vendor for Altrider. Not sure..

Thanks. Might be my next purchase, not sure how easy it would be to attach to the same area as my ACD frame mounted bolts.

Hey sallydog, we haven't heard much from you in a while. I trust you're mostly healed up by now. What's the story on the bike? Replaced or repaired yet?

I'm pretty sure that is what I have. Then the rectangular one for the passenger.
