Nobody is immune to crosswinds
Hi. Early in June I rode I-80 from Chicago to western Nebraska, then part way across Wyoming. The crosswinds were tiresome most of the way, and I enjoyed using other routes that took me into canyons and through hills where crosswinds were less severe.
I thought my 650 V-Strom, laden with gear as high as my head, was catching a lot of wind on I-80, but at Coeur D'Alene ID I compared observations with a Harley rider who had all his baggage in saddlebags, yet experienced similar problems with crosswinds on I-90 through ND and MT.
Yeah, battling crosswinds takes some energy, but not a lot. I'm 64 years old and I rode 560 miles a day four days in a row, westbound, and over 600 miles four days in a row, eastbound. Going east I went through Canada, as far north as Edmonton Alberta, and Canadian crosswinds are much the same as American ones, except a tad wetter when I was there. Saskatchewan was really washed clean when I reached Manitoba, and so was the left side of my V-Strom!
Hang in there, and take shelter from any weather that frightens you. This pastime is supposed to be a challenge sometimes, but limit your risks and you get to take lots and lots of them.
