This all depends on rider size. I'm 6'3" and the buffeting on the stock '12 DL650 was brutal. My madstad mounts and screen transformed the bike and I love it now. I did 7 hours straight on it...

Buffeting

Sad but true. The madstad mounts/screen I put on my '12 DL650 was the best money I've spent, transformed the bike. Looks like this may need the same treatment.

I usually get stuck in traffic at the water gap but even I-80 gets a bit twisty there and I've always wanted to stop for lunch. Nice ride.

Yep as they are a disposable item the supply seems to be getting more scarce, and therefore pricey. A shame they aren't more easily rebuilt.

Spun bearing :(. Yep would have preferred not but as motor swaps go it was pretty easy. Only motor I can picture hefting into place with no help. I think my bike had a hard previous life.

Cool ride.

Theory on your mpg: Air is less dense up high, less air = less fuel, less fuel = better mpg. You were probably down on power a bit but just didn't really notice it.
