02 VL 800 fairing choices

The majority of my riding is my commute to work. The highway speeds tend to make the ride a bit unpleasant at times. My thinking is that a fairing may help the issue a bit.
The Internet being the shoppers friend has presented me with several options. Tsukayu looks to have a very nice fairing with plenty of options, but i don't think i want a sound system. And they are the most expensive.
Memphis Shades has a nice one that seems affordable but it looks to be somewhat smaller, and requires extra brackets and signal relocation, along with a seperate windscreen.
Then we have Vector which is the least expensive and appears to be much like the Memphis Shades unit, but needs much less as far as extras.
I dont really need a stereo but i might like a GPS?? I really like the Tsukayu and they have some really nice hard bags that caught my eye ...but $$$$$$$
So looking for advice and reccommendations. Keep in mind this is a 17 yr old bike.
What say the motorheads???

I have the M S and love it. The brackets are a bit pricey but they work with a plain windshield also. I have an old garmin nuvi gps and have it hardwired and mounted in the center of my bars. My batwing does a great job of protecting it from rain.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

I added driving lights earlier, and just used a piece of angle to have them hang down instead of sticking out sideways.

This is a good priced and quality alternative. I had mine painted locally and put in the audio myself. Total cost was under $600. Got a second one for my M109r.
