Hey sgoat ...
Which tank panniers are those ??? and are the front straps stock or did you add them ??? Any chance of some additional pictures from the side (will also show the windscreen) also pics of the mounting straps...

Thanks ...
They're Wolfman panniers. They include all the straps shown. On the front I've attached the right side strap to the left side buckle, and vice/versa for the other side. The rear attaches to the frame on both sides. Works great, rock solid.

You could get it from any BMW dealer not sure of the cost.

Having owned a BMW it's probably $1,000.00

Roadshield. I experimented with different extensions to cut down the wind without causing too much wind steer. I finalized an a piece of lucite 6" wide that sticks up about 7-8". I like being able to rotate the whole screen down when riding tough trails and am pretty happy with it overall.

National Deflector

Cut my National Deflector to match the headlight fairing. Then added a Touratech windshield spoiler and my own set of lowers fabbed from polycarbonate sheeting. The windshield can be tilted down in seconds to tackle offroad or to provide more wind if needed.

Totally eliminated wind and noise. I can ride at 70 MPH actual with my visor open and there is no wind at eye level and I'm 6'2" with a 34" inseam. More importantly there is no buffeting at all. I road geared up in 90 degree temps here the other day and it was a bit warm. Tilt the shield a bit at the stop light and voila a nice little breeze but still good protection at speed.

I'm going for a 200 mile plus ride tomorrow loaded up with saddlebags and tank bag to test the config thoroughly. We'll see if it pans out for LD travel.

My DR650

This is my DR650. The headlights are Buell and the windscreen is one I found on a German bike website for dual headlight mounts. I had to fab the mounts for the DR, but it came out pretty nice.

Nat'l Cycle Deflector

The website doesn't list a fit for the DR650. Are there any differences in fit or hardware, or is it one-size-fits-all?

Never mind. Just ordered a Spitfire S06.
