...and what brand of hand guards and why?  I find the OEM useless and wish for larger, more wind-protective.

I have the Givi hand guards on mine, not a lot different to the originals truth be known. I cracked one of mine on the garage wall at home hence the replacement.

I have a set of Touratech guards on order, they're actually for the later GS models but I think they'll fit. If not they do a universal-fit guard. They look like they'd be a lot better than OEM (or the Givi, which I also have - no extra protection on the underside). Not cheap mind.

Thanks for the heads up on Touratech.  Please advise when you install them, add a picture, and let us know they are worth the money.

Will do.
I've also ordered what they call "spoilers" which extend the tops of the guards. I'll test them in both configurations.
