Wind Buffeting

Post by Mike 545 »

Test rode a new 2012, when the wind was gusting at about 21 mph. There was a vortex inside the cockpit; that never happens in my 1500 wing. Is this normal? Should I order a large windscreen, it I cop the bike (a dealer is bringing in a new blue one for me)? Was it a fluke

Being able to cruise in heavy winds is one of the main reasons I am upgrading. Strong winds really mull my 1500 around. There were times, when gusts shoved me towards the next lane or put me into a lean.
