    Now it's several days later and I did receive the deflector and installed it - where did all that wind go? Brilliant at what it purports to do - stops all the flow upwards between the fairing and gastank. Haven't been at highway speeds yet to see how it acts, nor been 2-up yet to tell if it makes any difference to my passenger, bit will followup after I've had some good rides with it. So far pretty impressed.

    As things are now, buffeting is not a major problem for me, but since getting back from Americade I'm still wishing to make any possible improvements so my passenger is comfy as possible. We made that trip with forumite PaiN who raved about the combination of his new Madstad windshield and your deflector. His has an ace embossed into it. I found an ebay listing for what I hope is one of your newer designed fork deflectors through Bad Ace Billett which is on it's way to me now. It'll still be about a week before I see it. I wish I had seen this message before ordering but I guess we'll see whether it helps my particular situation. This is your design right? - pic below

    Wow it's been 10 days since you answered - now I'm the one who missed it....sent a reply to PM which I suspect you never saw so I'll repost it here as a reply to this Visitor Message:

    I just did 800 miles last week going to Americade and back with a passenger and honestly don't have a tremendous amount to complain about. A lot of the trip was upwards to 80 MPH and at higher speeds my passenger got the worst of it. Her wind seems to be collapsing onto her from the top and sides, up high. Mine is mostly coming over the tops of my forged bars (which have closeouts) and hitting me about knee / thigh and riding up my torso. I also get a strong blast coming up the middle of my gas tank from under the front fairing, which I've read might be a good thing, depending on all the other factors in the equation like windshield height, torso length and on and on. I realize there's no single answer.

    Hello Diamond Jim, I am trying to improve wind turbulence for my passenger and I know you seem to be constantly developing wings nd such....what's your latest and greatest products? I am running forged bars which have been closed off with lexan, and just switched to a 13" Long Ride Shield recurved but the air seems to be collapsing pretty hard still on my lady. Lots of wind noise too for her, although I'm doing pretty good. We've got some long highway trips coming up and I was reading about your center fork deflectors and fork tube deflectors. Any recommendations for my setup?
    Thans,
    -Joe-
