Yeh, should have made that clear - the stock screen was at the highest position on the Madstads and fully raked back, and still caused buffeting. I don't go spending 70 quid on a new screen lightly:D

Baghist - nice report. The shots of Dresden struck a real chord with me. I went there, in 1961, the year they built the Berlin Wall, ferchrissakes. I was on a cultural exchange visit, 13 years old,...

Nice report and pictures. Brought back good memories of last year when I did the Picos de Europa with my girlfriend on my old VFR - we stayed in Arenas, just a few k's from where you were.
