Does trunk contribute to getting pushed by wind?
Yesterday I returned a set of JC Whitney trunks to their store in LaSalle IL. I strapped both of them, in their shipping boxes, down to the rear seat and luggage rack with one box stacked on the other. The ride from my house to JCW was very scary. I was getting blown all over the road much worse than normal. I sometimes feel like I'm getting blown around with just my Shad 33 case on. On the return trip it was still very windy but the bike didn't wander nearly as much. The boxes were huge so they must have acted like a sail.
Does a normal size tail trunk contribute to the high speed wandering? I remember reading years ago in a review of the original Yamaha FJR in Rider that they didn't include a top case because a top case can cause handling issues. Is this what they meant?
