I totally understand you want to get rid of buffeting because that's exhausting but i always say, if you want to sit free of wind you should buy a car.
Not an Iron butt rider yet but doing a lot of miles and also now what's important. In my believe that is that riding a motorcycle is being exposed to the element and wind is one of them.

I understand what you are saying and my setup gives me full adjustability to get all the wind I want.  Once you ride over 1000 miles in a day, you'll have more perspective.

Oh i know pretty well.
Last week i did 855 mls in just over 25 hours, not a 1000 mls in 24 hours Iron Butt ride but it was not meant to.
Plan was to do that in 3 days but i was on my way to Switzerland from Italy and the Dutch government closed off Switzerland because of the increasing corona patients so i had to divert to Austria and then some other problems came along so i headed home.
Until the 6th hour of a 8 hour ride it still was a holiday trip including the scenic route past Lake Garda.

Has anyone had any issues importing the CalSci screen to the UK? I saw some pretty negative reviews on Trustpilot. Only 2 reviews to be fair but both negative.
