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?

I will find out on 27th about the DL1000, I think the update is just minor, compared to the new 650. I use to own the very first 2002 DL1000 and I remember I experimented with windshield.
