I've been riding a Softail custom, no Windshield. Now I have a 09 EG Classic. My observations are this. The fairing/WS certainly keep the wind from beating you (especially at the higher speeds), but what I find is that at the lower speeds 30-50 you get this turbulance AROUND you from the sides and top. I have seen some other types of WS, that have curves/flares/ridges on them, I'm wondering if they help with this and if anyone has any feedback on this. p.s. it the fairing/WS design the same on the 09's as previous years lets say 06's ... ?
