I am getting my brand new '08 GT on the 8th (July), can't wait (and yes! it's the fast colour, I'll post pictures soon after). This will be my 5th BMW and it's going to replace my 2003 GS. Due to some medical problems the GS's position became unbearable after 100 or so kms,. So the dealer here let me have a GT ('06 model with no problems) for day's test. I put around 350km (close to 200m) on that day, city traffic, highway, hills, mountains (no shortage of those here in Switzerland), and the only part of me that got painful was my face from smiling too much.
Anyway, I have a question for you people with aftermarket screens. I am 1m95 (6.4 ?) tall, with a long torso and I always get noise and buffeting. I thought of the ZTechnic Vstream but I saw some negative comments re:bike stability on cross winds, not sure if that person was talking about the short of the tall version. Then, some of you spoke highly of the LIP. Anymore ideas / experiences?? I am not looking for a car ride, just a bit more comfort without disturbing the solid ride the GT offers.
