    The simple Go Cruise with no tension screw. Works fine. Again, gives you 2 or 3 minutes relief before it starts slowly losing its grip and speed drifts downward.

    +1 Go Cruise

    You can take your hand off for several minutes at a time when you find yourself on a flat and boring highway. Works as advertised.

    I have a 19 inch V stream that I bought last March.

    I like the stock screen better. V stream does silence and gives wind protection, but we have LOTS of crosswinds out here, and it acts a bit like...

    +1 dancogan

    The people who designed the bike put a lot of thought into the windscreen. Why not at least try it for 1000 or more before deciding that you don't like it. I hastily bought a V-Stream...

    Yup. Totally different case.

    Mine's this one, which I like so far.

    But I have exactly the same size helmet 7 5/8 XL

    Try putting it in this way. It makes a difference, even...

    The BMW top case will hold a Schuberth C3. I also have the factory panniers.

    I like the top case. Well-made and sturdy. I've had it for only about six months. Some complain of cracking after...

    At 80mph I get 58 mpg

    At 65 mph I get 63 mpg

    Have seen high 60s mpg on rare occasions when the speed limit is 55-60.

    That's with the panniers OFF. The top case seems to have no effect, but...

    The ST might be hot if you are using a big screen in summer. It's perfect if you just use the stock screen once the temps get above 80 F. Also handles MUCH better in Nebraska crosswinds with the...

    I just went through this. Almost bought a 650. Then found a used 2007 F800ST with 12,000 miles, which I ride about 100 miles each weekday commuting on I-80 in Nebraska. All he'll need is a bit taller...
