Passenger Wind Buffeting
« on: December 15, 2013, 04:33:08 AM »
My wife and I have been enjoying riding together for over 40 years. I ordered my Trophy last September, and took delivery in February. In July we took a 2 week trip to Vancouver Island to try it out, and overall, it was very enjoyable. However, my wife was bothered with excessive buffeting a number of times. Has any of your passengers complained of similar occurrences? Any suggestions to overcome this? (I have installed the larger touring windshield)

Neither of my children (one 5'5" the other 6'3") have ever complained.  I'm assuming you tried the obvious of raising or lowering the wind screen?

No problems here. Is it from the front or is it pushing her from the rear :087: :087:

I would say more from the sides than the front or back. Her neck gets sore from the wind pushing her helmet to the side.

Just asked my wife - she says it's lovely on the back most of the time - any buffeting only happens when it's windy
