Bike is amazing. I’m going from a KTM 1290 Super Adventure. Like really really good.

I had the dealer install the Suzuki taller windshield and heated grips before I picked it up

it’s summer and hot so no report on the grips

The taller windshield is terrible for me. I’m 6’ tall. The buffeting is really bad. If I was 5’10” or shorter or 6’2” or taller it would be great. That said I’m switching back to the oem short windshield for the rest of the ride.
I had a similar experience (6'1) with the taller screens on the previous generation F model. The buffeting was simply too bad at interstate speeds.

BTW why did you choose choose the GSXS over the 1290 SA? I was very interested in the KTM but ended up buying a slightly used V-Strom (got a very good deal). The GSXS is awesome but not as comfortable as adventure bikes on longer trips.
