Especially If you are way out there, and need to change a tire, or do some other repair.
I had a centre stand and abandoned it as it was a PITA over jumps and rough / fast trails ...

Those little trail stands / Anderson stands work well, as do logs and rocks ...

Mud, stuck?

I literally fell into a hole whilst riding across the Pesaquid lake shore. It took me 20m to pull it out!

Everyone loves photos of bikes stuck in mud!

Looking good!

How do you like riding with the windscreen?
I'm considering that one for my Ginger. On road sections my helmet is really pushing up hard.

I got that screen and it's mostly very good but it seems to direct flies into my eyes so I got the touratech screen spoiler for the BMW F800 after seeing SportsGuy (post no.1577) on here using one. Works pretty well in combination but sometimes the air gets a bit noisy. Height may have something to do with it - I'm 5'10".

My solution to wind

I added some height to the KTM screen and ventilated my helmet peak. Works great up to about 120 KPH - after that all bets are off.
I'm 6'.







(or you could just cut back on the beans and cabbage )

Windscreen definitely helps with the helmet lift. It is not a windshield though so don't expect any miracles. I really like the look though.

Looks excellent!

Haven't read everything here but thinking about to buy the 690. This fairing and windshield is from rally raid? I haven't found this on their website. Can someone post the direct links to it? :)
