How are you finding the wind protection comparing these two bikes? I had an opportunity to test ride the AT and I was thrilled about the handling, engine and suspension, however the wind exposure was pretty bad.
I found the buffeting on my AT annoying until I added the Swegotech Forkshield. Wind protection is fine now. YMMV of course.
I thought the Vee2 wind protection was fine out of the box. Is 2018 a minor or major Vstrom 1k update?
