I LOVE my 950 more than any other bike I've had, but I have some 3000 mile + trips planned this summer and don't know if I will be able to ride 500 mile days. 100 mile days and my head is spinning and ears ring bad. I have custom plugs! This is all over 65 and highway. Like I said, I know this has been discussed to no end, but what would y'all do?
At the present I have stock shield on, also have a moose shorty, didn't feel much differnce. Arai XD3 helmet.
This bike is sweet, but its a PITA not to enjoy highway speeds.
Might be up for sale shortly in flea market. :(
Seems to be a pretty simple solution from any variety of aftermarket deflectors. Short of changing to a full touring bike, you might end up with the same issue on another bike.
I'm living with the stock shield for now, and using really good ear plugs. Simple solution.
