I had the exact same issue moving to a K12GT from the LT. I solved it with an AeroFlow screen and their AeroGards. I'm still waiting to see what Paige comes up with for the GT/GTL.LT_Pilot said:Specifically, your hands, forearms and upper arms are in the slipstream.
Yeah, so I keep hearing . . .LT_Pilot said:Regardless, the K1600 is an amazing bike to ride.
I'm one of the lucky ones to get Garry's hand guards as seen in the pic below. They work very good at making an "Air bubble" around your hands & arms. I've rode in 35 degree temps with no problem. The rest of the faring does a great job moving the wind around you.JimE said:Definitely more.
I think for most the biggest issue is on your hands and arms. Some of the guys have added the wind deflectors that someone on the forum came up with. I'm sure they will chime in with the specifics.
I've been riding my all winter here in Maryland even on some sub-freezing days. On the coldest days, I'm wearing a Gerbing XE jacket/pants and G3 Gloves. I got off after a couple of hours of near freezing temps as snug and warm as you could desire. I'll point out that I had no heat on my feet, just riding boots with warm socks.Dom4526 said:Thinking about crossing over to the K16 but have reservation due to the narrower fairing compared to my '01 Lt.
