After living with the stock windscreen on my 2013 R1200GSW for 2 years, I decided to try to cut down the amount of wind hitting my helmet and causing noise. I am 6'3" and at the lowest position, this windscreen keeps all but the top-most half inch or so of of helmet out of the wind. This windscreen seems to be of very good quality. The price was reasonable, and RevZilla delivered it quickly. I am very happy with this product. I am also using the Wunderlich brace on this windscreen, as I read that the larger screens may flop around a bit more. Have not tried riding without the brace, so I am not sure to what extent it is needed.

There are not many choices for mounting auxiliary lights on the liquid-cooled GS, but I think this is the best one. It puts the lights in the traditional spot and is sturdy and simple to deal with. It is also just about the least expensive option, apart from clamps to mount lights on crash bars. You can spend a lot more for a light mount, but it will mount in the exact same way and not be any better. This is the one to get, in my humble opinion.

I have been running Tourances on my 1200GS since the OEM tires wore out and I am very happy with them. They wear extremely well while still providing enough grip for me to run with the fast guys (on the street, so not at a true race pace) if I am in the mood. I ride the backroads of New England mostly, and they work very well on the rough and bumpy broken surfaces that are so often encountered, as well as being fine on dirt roads and such. These are NOT hardcore offroad tires, but a good 90/10 tire. On the rare occasion where I have pushed either end beyond its limit, sliding and recovery of grip are gradual and smooth, not abrupt; very rider friendly.
About my ratings, I rode liter sportbikes for many years and used some very sticky tires on them, so since Tourances are not as sticky as those, I gave them a 4. Also, there are tires like the ME880 that get better mileage, so again, a 4 in that category.
Yes, I recommend this product.
