  Spring is here, only a few more weeks before some tentative riding.  ::)
Routes / STAR 2018 in La Crosse Routes
« Last post by wiemanca on March 19, 2018, 07:31:27 PM »
Routes are being posted for STAR 2018 in La Crosse on the National MSTA forum,

Check under Events then STAR 2018 folder.  As of now, there are 10 routes posted by Minnesota's Ray Kang.  More to come in the near future.

Great routes Ray.

If you have not registered for STAR yet, now is the time.  You will probably never have the opportunity to have another National STAR Event this close to Minnesota, where you can show MSTA Members from North America and some from the UK the great riding that we have near us.  Great Riding, seminars, great get-together's and much more.

Now is the time to get this done. Re-flash your ECU. Get the better gas mileage you want and more power so you are slicing the wind and not plowing through it. Then when spring is here get on one of the forums and see what other like for wind screens. Then you won't know if your plowing or slicing.

Excellent suggestion.  I put a double-bubble screen on my sport bike thinking any extra protection, albeit small, would be good.  As it turns out, I like the feel of the stock lower screen better.  I was very surprised.  The stock screen is back on.

So, is it the aerodynamics of the fairing that is bugging you, or the handling?    Perhaps a different windscreen would help get rid of the sensation of pushing air out in front of you?   On your CBR, your body may have been in more clean air flowing all around you, while on the new bike with more protective fairings, the net result is that the air is being moved and potentially directed up and into your chest/helmet.  Take the windscreen off entirely and see what it feels like.   Perhaps a different windscreen with a better profile (read less style) would actually help the bike "Slice" through the air better.

It's 90% of what I wanted it to be. Where it starts to show it's flaws are at speeds that I sometimes like to ride. I feel it "pushing" through the air versus slicing through the air like my sportbikes did. Also surprising is the gas mileage. While 35-40 mpg is still ok, I could slice the corners all day on my CBR and get 40-45.
A 350 mile day is more comfortable, but ...... maybe I didn't mind the "uncomfort" given it's a trade off. A Cadillac is more comfortable, but a Corvette is more fun. I'll rest when I'm dead. 

We'll see.
