    Fairings for R1200R

    I'm considering buying an R1200R on which I would mount a small fairing, most likely a Wunderlich or a Carpe Moto. Anybody have experience with these two in terms of wind/ rain protection, noise, buffeting, etc.? I've used a Parabellum Scout but do not care for its appearance. Had an R100S a long time ago that carried essentially the same quarter fairing as the current Wunderlich, which is also what I have on my R100R. I like them and their look, but I'm very curious how they compare to the Carpe Moto. Thoughts?

    You might go spend some time on the R1200R specific forum on the R1150R forum:

    The questions and answers on shields/fairings have been pretty much been beaten to death there.

    The basic conclusion was - "It depends"

    It depends on"

    1 - Your size (inseam, chest height, arm length)
    2 - What you seek in the way of protection (minimal to maximal)
    3 - Your budget
    4 - Even the accessories like a tank bag or low seat vs normal seat vs tall seat

    Reading there you'll get some insight.

    I've been through about 6 different shields on my '07 R1200R. Some were OK, some were awful, the one I use now is acceptable, but it might not work for you at all depending on items 1-4 above.

    I like the Wunderlich Trophy fairing I have on my 2011 R1200R:

    It was pricey though...
