Big B - sorry, but this is a head shaking, double-vision affair at 60 mph for those of us afflicted - not a "little" issue.
Allonsye - way to go! Keep up the good work. Looking forward to your results.
I got back from my trip and now sick with flu, so experimentation has been temporarily put on hold. Actually, VG's are used in aircraft to make wind "stick" to surface curvature; normally used to increase stall speed and low speed manuverability. In your application I suspect you're redirecting the air flow which achieves the desired effect.
I was considering some type of "wind wing" such as used on my Gold Wing and other touring bikes to completely send air around rider in cold weather. With that set-up I would have the option of changing air flow, particularly when in hot weather and speeds less than 60 mph when maximum air flow would be desired to keep me cool.
When all else fails, twist the right wrist!
