I must say that I am with bodessia on this one.
Wind noise above 70 km/h? Have to sell it, it's too much, I just can't bear it, all that noise above 70 km/h, my poor ears.
Yes, sell it already, to someone who is used to bikes and the fact that riding is not the same as sitting in a car.
It's one thing to ask for some advice how to deal with excessive wind noise or which screen does what, and another to whine about it. Maybe try a CBR250 or a bike that doesn't go faster than 70 km/h.
There are some real riders on this site who have ordered the X and are waiting to pick their bikes up; they don't need anybody raising non-issues.
Sorry to be a bit hard on you but personally I've never minded if someone set me straight.
Maybe something this would be best for you:
After finally riding an X model I realized right away that there's an annoying turbulence even at slow speeds.
I've never experienced anything like this before. I had several K100RS and wind blast was never an issue.
So there is an issue with this model; sorry I blamed the OP for being a whiner!
