Maybe it's because I had a V-Strom once upon a time? Now there's a machine with a buffeting problem!

Now I also run a Vstrom and have no problem at all............................

I had a 2012 V-Strom once upon a time. Many reasons I didn't like it but buffeting was one of the reasons for its demise.

Compared to that Tigee is freaking awesome!!  :169:

I covered 200 miles with my new Powerbronze screen over the last 2 evenings, everything from towns to twisties to motorway. I'm very impressed with it. I've never suffered from buffetting before just wind noise. On the highest setting I get some buffetting but nothing at all from the mid position or lower settings. Wind noise is dramatically reduced in all positions. Overall I'm well pleased with it, just in time for Spain and Portugal in September as well.  :002:

Oh yeah... did I mention it was brand new and gjven to me free.  :062:

I've never owned a bike that I didn't have to tinker with to get a decent airflow over my helmet. Actually, that is not quite true. My 1976 Gold Wing with Vetter Windjammer fairing had the best aerodynamics of all of them.

My 2009 V-strom required the addition of a Madstad bracket plus an MRA Xscreen. My ST1300 needed a Laminar Lip. I find that the current generation Gold Wings that I have rented when I visit Arizona have terrible buffeting with the windscreen in any position.

For me, unlocking the secret of how to tune the airflow on my current ride is all part of the ownership experience.

My setup with MRA blade and the oem tall screen is ok for me even with my 2m (6'7"). Up to 160 it's quite comfy, there is a minor buffeting at some speeds, but way better than without MRA.
