I did buy a Madstad (for a different bike), and ended up taking it off, just like all the others.

I recently rode a 400 mile day on my Hypermotard, and never thought once about wind. That was not a low-speed ride. And I already have long arms, which is probably indicative of my problem. I'm either too tall or too far back from the screen so the wind that hits my head is not smooth.

Anyway, I don't want to be argumentative. Just want to show some screen-free solidarity for anyone else who might have the same experience.
