On the windy prairies and the nearby Rockies, I've run into instances where I couldn't even pull over to the side of the road on the Vee (Red Deer thunderstorm), without chancing on being blown into the ditch...
Apparently the 950/990 Adventurer's can even be worse, hard to imagine...

Every owner of FJR's I've approached, has said their bikes just hunker down, lean over and soldier through the worst of my region's, extreme windy conditions. I'd settle for that !
