Not bad! BTW - the hat help to reduce mirror-related buffeting? Before Madstad I'd have tried anything as well.

That's right, we wanna know. And, BTW, nice looking bars. They look like they're mounted on bar risers too. What brand? Is your bike an ABS wee and if so, did you have to change the brake/clutch lines?

His bike is a Vee. You can tell by the bar clamps (which are separate pieces from the top triple clamp), the detail spears on the side panels and the way the side panels meet the tank without gaps.

Any Suzuki Dealer in Europe will sell it to you. Suzuki International Europe Part #99D0-06G00-PAD. Maybe a dealer could get it for you here too.

Bars are Magura AX Bend. Getting harder to find now as BMW bought out the AX bend rights and sells it as their product at 100% markup. I purchased mine here, but UK still sells it at http://www.bmwbikebits.co.uk/shop/item.asp?itemid=2098

Mine is a Vee and it has moose racing 1 1/2 inch riser/adapters. No change in brake/clutch lines. The front brake cables are bolted on the triple clamps under the fairing. Just need to loosen that bolt and give more slack to the cables.

I'm sure Brendan could cut a way better deal than I paid for it with a group buy. The quality of the pad was far better than I had expected, that's why I wanted to post it.
