I have always found the Vk to have good wind protection except for the feet so have just re fitted my feet wind deflectors I had on last year.


I must repeat what I said last year: your deflectors are great!

Along with the hand guards and heated grips. I put on a set of ATV Mitts on really cold days. With the heated grips and mitts its like having your hand in a nice warm oven. I hate thick gloves also so i only ride with summer gloves...

I suspect those of us on the east coast are still wearing shorts and a t shirt on the days you consider "really cold"  :001: :001:

I like the idea of those ATV mitts, Weijo.  Do the ones you have fit over the hand guards?

Yes in the photo the Mitts are pulled over the hand guards. I have large hands so for a little extra room i cut the threads about an half an inch or so at the spot in the red circled on both Mitts..

I saw this clip on YT and thought it might help with some winter cleaning/prep
