Billy, that is one of the best posts I have read period. I think you are exactly right and explained the problem in clear English. I am running a 2012 XC with a 17" Cee Bailey regular shield with the vent option and I also have the Wind Breakers lower deflectors. When I lean forward I definitely get into the sweet spot where everything is right with the universe and as I move back I get wind/buffeting. I use the Vic flip shield in the summer to get more air but on the highway it is impossible to ride with. I have thought about the Cee Bailey Dragon but Joe at Cee Bailey said the best air he got after months of testing was with the shield I have. Anyway, I am sure this conversation will continue but do you have any thoughts about the Dragon as a fix?
