Hows the windprotection?

And who makes aftermarket parts for this bike? - windshields, bags, exhausts and other great stuff.

I live in a part of the world that can get at bit cold... how is the heated grips...any good?
Wind protection: Not great, the tiny cowl doesn't really make much difference.

Heated grips: Very good. At high setting, hotter than BMW grips.

Aftermarket parts: SW Motech and KTM Powerparts have plenty of stuff. You can also get various other stuff like a Rekluse clutch, Gipro gearshift indicator, Givi racks, luggage, and windscreen, and Touratech navi mount (Touratech says it's for the BMW G650X but it fits the SM-T perfectly).

Warning: Stay away from the KTM Powerparts gel seat! It is worse than the stock seat. I ordered a Renazco for my SM-T and should have it soon. I'll post some pics and a report when I get it.
