I just bought an '02 V-strom and entered into a world of deafening wind, both on the bike and with guys at motorcycle bars with Buells preaching the gospel of amateur aerodynamic knowledge and windscreen brandnames. At least I found out about this site, you guys are most certainly airstream connoisseurs. So here's my particular: I want to go Alaska on the V from Southern California, and other places too but this my only current plan. I'd like as little fatigue as possible, so getting the air off of my torso and head is public enemy #1. I don't mind wind on my legs and arms. The Ceebaileys screens come up a lot in the threads, a 28 1/4" screen costs as much as the other sizes so I could just saw it down to fit my needs, but a new Givi screen costs something like half as much and sounds good. What do you guys recommend for under $200 and preferably less? Also, I could really use tailbag and saddlebag recommendations for a combined sub-$300. Dang, I could also use heated grips and a throttle lock, too. Windscreen's the primary thing darnit, I'm 6'2", 32 inseam. Thanks a bunch.
Can't help with the windshield as I'm still playing with those. The Tourmaster/Cortech soft bags are nice. A 3 bag set is less than $200 and comes with rain covers. Saddle bags are expandable and tie down well. Have used them on the Bandit and are on the Strom now.
One other place to look would be Parabellum. I had one on my BMW and loved it. I see now he is making screens for the Strom. Very good quality and little if any buffeting. Check it out at www.parabellum.com
