    Hello from West Yorkshire

    Hello,

    Recently purchased the 2018 BMW r1200gs Rallye TE after riding sports bike for many years

    Love the bike and looking forward to touring over the coming months/years!

    One thing I have noticed is the slight buffeting around the forearm/shoulder area which I'm hoping will stop once I fit some winglets. Ive tried the screen in various positions but it seems to work best at its lowest setting. Helmet is the Shoei GT Air

    Welcome to the collective, assimilation won't take long.
    Resistance is futile.

    Enjoy the bike.

    Cheers Dave.

    Ey-up lad. Nice bike but you may end up putting winglets and a GSA screen on it to get rid of the buffeting
    The older I get, the better I was

    GSA screen and Winglets seem to have worked. Only issue with GSA winglets is fitting so most likely purchase a pair from Nippy Normans

    Hi & welcome to the forum, I’ve same bike but 9000 miles in, you may find a little wind is nice on a hot summers day, personally this summer I was glad for a little airflow, even had my twat jacket arm zips open this year.. (I’m sure you’ll soon get to know what a twat Jacket is) but very versatile imo
