I have seen some riders take old windshield and mount them at the back between the seat cushion and the trunk. I also remember seeing these available somewhere. Maybe Wing Stuff?
Mercedes uses a similar system on their SL models when the top is down. It rises up behind the driver to keep the air from sneaking around.

Im going to install the newest, latest, greatest Taka that I have in the shop and install the Bakers and give that a whirl. Like I said earlier, she is not a complainer so I will have to ask and make her pay attention. Maureen had never been on a motorcycle until she met me, (another one of my bad habits that I corrupted her with) and I think that she just thinks "hey, Im on a MC and there is wind, so what???" I just want to make her more comfortable since we have been averaging 500 mile days recently.

I find on our long trips with the bag on the trunk rack it helps as it acts like the wind buffer that convertibles use

You may be on to something there as when we have our dog carrier on the back, Carol says there is virtually no wind on her.

Thank you all for your help and your advice concerning air coming around from the back. That is something that I never thought about, I only thought about front air. I will experiment with some options and post results. Thanks again.

Hey Tom, I have heard about these devices, never saw one, and not sure I ever saw any reviews but it is an option. P.S. I'm sure you can find them less expensive also.

Another company(shall remain nameless) marketed the rear wind deflector some time ago.
I opted to try one, even though $120 for a piece of plastic and 2 moly bolts is about $100 to high!
There was many posts on several forums about these for a while.
General consensus seemed to be most thought they were useless, me included!
There were some that liked them although I can't imagine why.
My wife is 5'6", she said there was no difference with or without the rear air deflector.
Also, my cover no longer fit after installing the rear deflector, not to mention we both thought it was ugly!!!!
This was done while the bike was still a 2-wheeler.
My $.02, this item was a total waste of time and money!!!

Logic would dictate that I would agree. I think it would have to be as tall as my dog carrier to do much good, but that's just my opinion.

Tom, I haven't a co-rider with me often enough to tell if the trunk bag helps. I'm surprised its getting so much praise here. I think 'dawg is talking about a polycarbonate shield from Kuryakin. It was a bit taller than the one in Fossil's link above. I tried it and had the same opinion as 'dawg. I removed it and the dealer did not hesitate to give me a refund. Supposedly, Kury planned to offer it in tints to match your windshield. But the consumer reviews were so bad, right from the beginning, Kury pulled it from their product line in about 6 months.

Ride often. Ride far. Ride safe and do much more of both.
Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach him how to surf the GWOF and he won't bother you for weeks, maybe months
I'll be waitin' for you at the end of the road.
If everything had gone as planned, it would not have been an adventure.
