S1000xr Fairing

So I hate riding cold. i was looking at some frontal pics of the s1000xr and a r1200gs and it looks like the riders legs are out in the wind. . The 2 times I've ridden the s1000xr its been 70plus, whats it like when its 50 ?

Re: S1000xr Fairing

It's been in the 50s a few times in the morning when I go to work on the XR. I still wear shorts under my mesh motorcycle pants and I am not cold. But up top I wear a mesh jacket with a rain liner and sometimes a fleece jacket.
