This is my wind and GPS protection.

I must also say I am not putting down the Adv in anyway,it to is an awesome bike and a do all king also. but the 2 side by side doing real off road stuff the SE gets the Plus IMO. I will buy another Adv soon for two up adv touring in a year or so when my litttle one gets older so me and my wife can get back to 2 up exploring which we both love around the southwest. the SE just feels so light and works so well in so many ways when your covering lots of ground, THAT is the Bottom line for me lots of ground. I have a few bikes and MY XR650R Still is the King of the desert riding and can handle roads miles with that over built motor and strong transmission. The SE it is just a#@(%#*(#() Blast. and it makes a good track day bike also. with the right tires and wheels on it.
We are geting closer to the best of all worlds bike not yet, but the SE is damm close.

You can cover three states in 430 miles? Man, they sure make them small out there! 400 miles just gets me to the first border -- maybe that's why I like the plush comfort of the GS

Anybody know where the other horsepower numbers can be found?

Maybe the reason you prefer the GS is tied somehow to your declining mental aptitude...

Case in point.. Land mass of Az is about 15 THOUSAND square miles larger than Oregon..

Just sayin..........

Very well said.

Well, I can't argue that my "mental aptitude" isn't declining...

On the other hand, even with my meager "mental aptitude", and my small little state, I know I can't "cover" three of our little states in 430 miles.

Oh, and it's "case ON point", as in a legal case that's ON point, not 'in point'. Sheesh.

Oh, and I was joking, you nozzle, that's what the large grinning face was intended to communicate.

Sorry to hi-jack, but would you mind posting a couple more pics of this screen? One from the side, maybe? Looks good, especially if it works well.

Hope this helps

The first was made of fiberglass with aluminum mounts and HID lights. All up to heavy. The second is 2 layer CF with CF mounts and plastic low beam to reduce weight. You need a good high beam tho.... Glass 135W

What factors make the ADV less capable off-road? Is it just the weight and the head angle?

Think of 'fast' vs 'bonkers'!

The SE is a less stable, more nervous, lighter platform with all the benefits and disadvantages. Jumping from my SE to an ADV feels like jumping from a 990 to a GSA. They are that different. It takes more skills to ride the SE faaaast, but if both are in the hands of competent riders, the SE will fly away.

To answer your question, it is both geometry and weight. The ADV inertia will dampen out reactions that the SE will not. Some like it, some not. I surely do, even if it scares the hell out of me sometimes.
