2nd time with the made in China business...

Wind, I wonder if a well-tuned fairing/shield could increase your distance? By that I mean could those hand guards and mirrors sticking up there measurably cut into your mileage, or even a shield if it isn't shaped correctly? I've seen wind tunnel tests on bikes, wonder how much more severely a battery drops due to pushing through the wind than an IC?

Love the bike, would do it in a minute if the kid was out of college.
