Wind deflector

Has anyone seen this deflector in the US? Who makes it, and where can it be bought?
Looks like a well built piece of kit.

Thanks

I wish. I've lusted over those things since I saw that same pic. That one, and a few more of the Wunderlich-farkled machine, are still on this site somewhere. What you're looking at is/was a prototype by Wunderlich. I've never seen the same thing ANYWHERE for sale. If you ever find a place to buy them, buy a pair for me too, and you'll be my hero forever.

True - and thanks - but not nearly as elegant a design. No, it's the Wunderlich or nuttin for me. So far that means nuttin.

Check with BMW of Santa Cruz. They are the US importer for Wunderlich. They have some website catalogs, but you're usually better off calling them directly.

'09 Magnesium Beige Metallic K13GT, 60K miles miles and counting...
'02 Mauve Metallic K12LTC, 106K miles and sold
BMWLT#145, IBA# 366, MOA# 111996, SCMA# 24032

All lower 48 states plus Alaska on the K13GT in two weeks . . .

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Did that last month. They didn't know anything about it.
