Stratoliner windshield and fuel mileage
With the Stratoliner bags and sissy bar, my Roadliner is a Stratoliner without a shield.
I want a shield, and while I could get an aftermarket one a LOT cheaper, I'd kind of like to keep the "Stratoliner" theme going.
While I look for a good deal to pounce on, though, I've got a question about shields and fuel economy.
I know (or at least THINK I know) that a racing fairing can increase fuel mileage by reducing wind resistance. But the Stratoliner is more of a snowplough than a feat of aerodynamic wizardry.
Has anyone added a stock Strato shield (or heck, just a similar shield) to a Roadliner? What happened to your mileage?
For the record, while the Strato shield doesn't look very aerodynamic, it turns out that my big carcass isn't particularly aerodynamic either.
