The Victory flip is a good improvement over the stock blade shield, but that's not saying much.
At speeds up to about 65 mph, the buffeting is fairly well controlled for the driver, but the passenger will still feel it. I think this is caused by the steep angle of the flip shield. It sits much more upright than the stock one. This causes more of a vortex behind the shield which allows air to "push" in from behind and the sides to fill the void. The more speed increases, the more you will feel this wind pressure from behind.
The passenger feels air pushing from the sides as the edge of the vortex is right behind the driver.
As I said, the flip is adequate for regular highway speeds, but not quite right for the 75 - 80 cruising speed I usually travel at.
Every day is a good day to ride. Some days are just better than others.
