How much difference, as far as handling, is there from the handle bar mount or if the windshield is mounted on the forks. Just wondering is the handlebar mount would be stable at high speed.

I installed the Mephis Shades windshield today and then test drove it for a quick 50 miles. Cruising along at 60 - 80 most for the time I felt no difference in handling. I gunned it up to over a 100 quick a couple of times at it was fine. What I am getting is wind noise and helmet buffeting. The noise is not substantial and I have been playing with the mounting angles to minimize the buffeting. Mounting the shield high and more vertical increased the buffeting while low and more swept back reduced it.

What about the other Memphis Shades windshields that are for the 109, I think one is 1 inch wider and 4 inches taller. Would that help alot with the noise and helmet buffeting.
