Speaking of wind, do you (or will you) wear earplugs? It'* not something "real" bikers want to talk about (because they can't hear you) but at 50 mph and above, you are causing PERMANENT hearing loss after 15 minutes. If you want to hear your kids (or grandkids) voices years from now I encourage you to start wearing earplugs. If you're married to a nag and want to shut her out, then ride on! Kidding.
You will be amazed at how much more refreshed you feel after a long ride with earplugs in. You don't have to spend a ton of money either, the disposable ones by Hearos or Howard Leicht work great and don't block out traffic noise. You can still hear the car next to you but the damaging wind is blocked.
Not here to preach to you, don't know you, and I'm sure you're an adult capable of making your own decisions, and you probably think I'm a jackass (don't care) just want to give you a heads up.
