Exactly, not that full boat Touring bikes like a Gold Wing aren't as Wind Shielded as a wind shield can get after all the accessory winglets get tacked on....But ....this hiding behind a windshield (Plastic or glass) is both nuts and not good.
I have a glass windshield...on my car!
...I'm looking to put a taller shield on my FA as well because I live in a hostile, high-wind environment and I figure the extra protection would not be a bad thing. Well that and the fact that I got plunked in the head by a rock yesterday that put a pretty good chip in my EXO-1000. Darn it!
Raptor, a taller windshield may not be the best thing for a "high-wind environment"...it may just provide more surface for the wind to grab...
And....it's not a fix-all.... Even with a Glass windshield in my car, with the windshild wipers and defrosters....they can be overwhelmed by a hard enough dump of rain, or a fog so thick, two feet in front of the car is blindness.
We have face shields on our helmets, and treatments for them, and our glasses, or goggles, and windshields....it works...if anything can work.
Focus the forces, Be The Force
