These are great bikes and you're going to love it the more you ride it. You'll get used to the feeling of the wind pushing on your chest over time and eventually it wont bother you at all.
I agree 100% regarding the wind. The first time I took my 500F out I was quite concerned about the wind on my chest. Now I don't even think anything of it, even at high speeds. (130+ km/h) It's a total non-issue after you've been out several times. Many new riders will immediately run out and buy a windshield, which kinda defeats the whole idea of buying a naked bike, in my opinion. Ride it as it is for a month, THEN
decide if you still want a windshield. (you likely won't!) In fact I know of many riders who complain of increased
buffeting with a windshield.
