air deflectors

I have a 95 Goldwing. The wife gets a lot of turbulence on the back. What I want to know is do those add on air deflectors work as advertised?

My wife always complained of the same thing. I put on a set of Baker wind wings that helped somewhat, but what made a huge difference, and solved the problem, was putting a tall windshield on. She now says there is no turbulence whatsoever.

And putting a GL1800 vent into it makes it even better. ;)

Oops, scratch that, you 1500 guys already have vents.. :oops:

+++++++I thought I had the tallest one I could find. What does yours measure and where did you get it. Thanks

I got the tall Slipstreamer, from MotorcycleWindshield.com, which had the lowest price that I could find online.

Here is the one that I got.
