Above 170KPH the Centre of Pressure moves back

I've ordered the Madstad bracket so I can get some fine adjustment, but I think I've found a solution to the buffeting issue.
With the current windscreen setting, the centre of pressure seems to move backwards above about 170 KPH, and you are sitting in a nice little vacuum.

From about 160-180 the buffeting definitely decreases. In traffic things get a little busy, so if I find a less populated stretch of road, I'll report back.

Above about 130KPH things are happening quite fast, so I'm out of my reaction comfort zone by then. Kind of ironic, really.
