    Welcome to the forum, Farmer Strom!

    I read your comments about your thoughts on the fairing; I agree with them completely! Yes, it looks like the fairing is designed the funnel the air right towards the rider, potentially causing all sorts of buffeting, especially on days with drafty cross winds.
    I read your PM and it's good to see that there's other "farmers" on this site. I'm not a rancher though I have aspired to be one earlier in life, before I went nearly broke by being a grain farmer. Ten years ago, I took a job with our local US Department of Agriculture office, so now I'm an office worker who makes payments to corn and soybean farmers. At least now, I own my farm and have one of my neighbors farm it for me on shares of the crops produced on it. I haven't yet got the gumption to try riding the Vee out in the cornfields just yet...but maybe someday! I have been riding it more on our local gravel roads, though.
    How do you like your Vee? I like mine OK, but I'm still trying to adjust to the feeling of the machine on bad cross wind days - I just feel like I'm getting beat up! I don't remember fighting the winds this bad on other bikes I've ridden. I'm guessing you also have some nasty winds in your neck of the woods as well!
    I'll look forward to more of your posts!
    Good riding, Mate!
