LOL'd with you describing the engine noise of the R12GSLC (which is pretty right on)
. As for engine noise on my 750, based on its engine being fairly exposed/ not much body work surrounding it, I find it to be "fairly" quite/ acceptable when starting it/ revving it. Also when riding "any" motorcycle I always wear ear plugs to combat the sound of wind caused by speeds from approximately 30mph to 100mph +/ - (for example at approximately 60 mph, wind can produce 120 dBA)
, which is no fun "for me" to listen to on an all day trip/ not to mention hearing loss it can cause over time.

If you are still interested, I'd like to sell my standard height seat @ $150.00, plus shipping (I'm located in Washington - 99208, all the way across from you)
Reason for selling would be to purchase a Sargent

KSD, thanks - its good to hear that you did some A/ B comparisons and found that you prefer/ really like BMW’s Adventure adjustable windscreen (Which IMO is really, really nice/ very slick!!).
All the best - Mike

KSD, have you tried out/ had 1st hand experience
with any of these windscreens..... "Puig - MRA - Madstad - Givi - Ztechnik - WRS", if so how much better (what % better)
is the/ your BMW elevated version of the Adventure? Also, how tall are you? What's your inseam? Are you using the low - standard or tall seat?

Over the years of riding motorcycles I've never found a "perfect" Windscreen and feel that there really is no such thing (other that driving your car). Anyway, I'm using WRS's tall windscreen & Wunderlich Wind deflector for my 750, which works pretty darn good/ not much buffeting and I'd rate it a 7 to 7.5/ 10. Is it perfect NO, but it gets he job done/ works for me (I'm 6'0 with 32" inseam, also I'm using BMW standard height seat).
Anyway, I'm sure there "might/ may" be better windscreen choices/ set-ups, however the only "REAL WAY" of knowing which is best is by doing an A/ B riding comparison, otherwise it just comes down to personal opinions (just like my mine, which some may agree or disagree with).

All the best - Mike

No prob. BTW/ just saying, I believe the handle bar diameter on the 750 is smaller/ different size compared to the 850.
(LOL'd about you having same trash cans in Indiana!)
Enjoy your new risers

Danno - IMO those are some very nice bar risers! Also, based my experience with my 750/ Hornig bar risers, I "think" these will also be a similar "easy" fit to what I experienced
