New here, hello everyone...

Just got a used 2013 SFV650 and took her on a 1200 miles round trip.

I was amazed at how comfy the stock seat was and how good the ride was overall...

The only complaints was the lack of windshield and lack of storage so I am trying to fix that now.

Looking for a good windscreen and a rear truck and mount.

Any ideas / recommendations ?

It used to be at one time that there was a lot of stuff available online to customize motorcycles, these days ebay/amazon hardly has anything.

Where is people getting the gear these days ?

Am looking for the best deal available to make this bike a bit more of a sport touring.

Was actually  consider a new ( in 2018 ) SV650 to replace my aging Bandit 1200 before I stumbled across a used Bandit 1250 for a price I could not pass up. That is, until I test rode one. Greyt handing and lovely engine but the seat was utter crap; for me. I cut my ride short, it was that bad. The salesman tells me that he can get me a better seat for it and then could not find one available. Problem now is that the only ones I can find still put that silly arse racer tilt in the seat.

The road is NOT your personal race track -

If you could ride 1/2 as good as you think you do, you would be a pro.
