Re: Wind noise GTL vs RT
I had a 2012 RT, and my wife also did not like the bike. She was never comfortable as a passenger on it, even with a rear Givi case on it. I sold it and purchased a 2012 GTL. She likes the bike much better, but even she recognizes the wind protection isn't as good for her as on the RT. I have made it better, by getting the Aeroflow wings. I have tried the Cee Bailey touring windshield, and it improved the wind protection. Since then, I switched to the CalSci touring windshield and I am pretty happy with the current set up. It still isn't as good as the stock RT. But my wife is happy on the GTL, and thus I am too. The RT still is better.
