Awesome little adventure, Ken. Thanks for sharing.
I'm glad you mentioned that. I thought it was just me. The taller windshield DOES seem to amplify the sound of the engine. But I have grown to like that sound, so I don't mind too much.One thing I noticed with the taller windshield is that the exhaust of this bike is quite a bit louder than what I'm used to. I couldn't hear that with the shorty. My Gold Wing and my ST1100s were much quieter. At normal rpms, the Trophy is much quieter as well. I'm not a fan of aftermarket exhausts, so I'll have to get used to the noise.
