I live about 100 miles west of you and the wind does howl at times. I ride 300+ days a year to work and back (50 mile r/t) and can certainly relate. However when the winds are really up I switch from my Buell Ulysses to my Harley Ultra with full fairing and it slices right through it. But out on the interstate it does get very tough even then sometimes
