I'm going to look at Indians this weekend, and might look at Victorys while I'm there. After owning a Street Glide and battling head buffeting for 2 years, I'm a little leery of getting another bike with a fairing. How is the buffeting for tall guys on Victory baggers (not the Vision, I'm not interested in it)? I'm 6'4" and long in the torso.
I am 6.2 and have a 2012 Cross country tour which comes with a high windshield. NO!!!!!!!! Buffeting.Period. However in the summer when you need a little air I have discarded the (blade) style shield from Victory which after 2 hours gives you double vision and a headache. I have ( for summer riding)a Klockworks 12 inch beveled shield which is perfect but as soon as you bend L exon, there is distortion , so I had my paint shop spray the inside black. Perfect combination IMHO.
No buffeting riding either two up or solo. Good luck
