I rode with Alan (the silver Ninja 250 stream-liner) on the I-80, through Utah, in gusting 35mph crosswinds, during a downpour, complete with simi-trucks, and he wasn't getting blown around any more than I was on a stock 2005 250. Craig's design is sound.

I imagine one would have to get used to the long tail sticking out in the back. However, Alan seemed to be able to ride around town without issue.
