V-Star 1300 Deluxe vs. Tourer
Hi Folks, I'm debating a 1300 Tourer vs. 1300 Deluxe. Since there are no Deluxe models near me, I have a few questions for those who have rode (or heard about) both of them:
1) The Batwing fairing concerns me (I've never used one before). How far downward I can see? I sometimes find myself looking down low in front of me through my lexan windshield. How far down can you see on the batwing? It seems the solid portion will only allow me to look straight ahead, but not down at all. BTW: I'm 5'11" tall.
2) Wind protection & buffeting: does the Batwing or Touring windshield offer better wind protection, less buffeting & less vibration? It seems the batwing is wider in places, but doesn't extend as low as the lexan windshield on the Tourer.
3) Other than price, are there any disadvantages with the Deluxe versus the Tourer?
