    What a great adventure it was to follow the Portugal ACT track made by touratech. 1000km in two days, no problem.

    A most excellent first post! Welcome to the asylum.

    I would be interested in any insight in the differences in touring on the two bikes, or perhaps a ride report with more of your great images.

    Thanks.
    The differences that outstands the most are the breaks. The airhead has a very advanced security System that doesn't allow you to go dangerously fast. It has no brakes, so if you want to stay safe you need to go slow :D.

    Seriously what i felt was that the PD was like a war tank ready for every occasion, it feels so good to be on the paved roads like it feels on the gravel roads, it is a real dual sports bike. The modern gs is more road focused off cousre but it really impressed me with all the Electronics working it's way up and down the hills.

    We are both noob off road riders and we did some Hard stuff for our experience level.

    And I was a Lucky guy to have my boxer 2v singing all Day long :super

    After 3500 kms the dodgy deflectors didn't move at all :clap They significantly (for me) reduce the wind noise and I didn't suffer from any fatigue from noise or buffeting.

    I think they can, potentially, be improved. If I used my fist to block the area above the deflector and beside the screen there was another reduction in wind noise.

    If I was making MkII, I would start off making them 40-50mm taller and contour them to match the screen angle (allowing handlebar movement). See pic below.

    I would still use the dual lock to avoid drilling the fairing but would make an alloy or SS bracket that connected to the original screen mount (a bit prettier then race tape :lol3).

    South end of the Olympic's, above lake Cushman, Washington pass, FSR 2441. It's opened back up, first time in a few years past this point, back into Elk lake, etc. Nice loop road around to the Hamma Hamma area.

    Looking for a right front fork lower and possibly a front wheel for 1994 GS etc. These do not need to be pretty, just have to have all the mounting points in the right places. I’d like to design a new big brake adapter for your bikes. Maybe we can work out a trade?
    PM me if you have something lying around.
