is the shield itself pretty stable, or is it flapping?

i assume 2-point mount, right?

Very little pressure below 50 mph, between 50-70mph air pressure about the shoulders is about the same as without the screen. From 70-90mph the pressure stabilized and did not appear to increase with speed above 70mph. Without the screen, the faster you go the more it trys to drag you off the bike, as you know. No change in handling or fuel mileage.
