Question Lock & Ride Winshield

I'm looking for opinions on Victory's Lock and Ride Windshields. I just installed one on my '09 Kingpin. I took it for a short ride, city streets, country road and highway. I'm a little disappointed in the up draft from my legs. I guess I'll have to add lowers, but at $299 I might try and get used to it. I bought the 30" windshield and it seems Ok for the upper body, it just creates the pocket for that updraft to fill. It's in the 84 degree range today, but I bought it after a cold ride the otherday. {New England}. I'm also thinking of getting a set of soft lowers for my highway bars, any thoughts?

Completely different ride, but I noticed the same thing on a cold day with the Memphis batwing on my Hammer. Relaxed a little, spread my legs apart a little so they weren't hugging the bike, and noticed more than half that updraft went away (or at least didn't come up into my neck and face). May be a short term fix for you on colder days until you find a way to block it all together, but adjusting my knee/leg position even a little made a major difference for me.

Your riding a motorcycle what do you except going down the road.
The only way any of us would get away from the wind is be in our cars.
Think of the old timers that road they had no plastic in front of them they just put on there big boy pants and enjoyed
