Heck, i never had one ! And i've been to 120 on the Bird and done the ton and over on ever bike i've had that was capable. I had one of those kawi triples too, tho the 750 version. Did 115 on that, no shield. I guess i'm just used to buffeting. But i just don't like turning a bike into a car. i feel like the wind smacking you is what makes the motorcycle experience what it is. I've done long stretches at 90+ and if i start getting tired of the wind i hunch forward. Come on guys, grow some balls.
