Ok. So I picked up an 81 GL1100I about a month ago so far i have been taking short rides around town to get the feel for it.
yesterday decided to see how she/I felt on the Highway since the CB400 dosen't seem to have the power for hightway speeds.
I did enjoy the comfort and power of the wing but i didn't expect the wind to be such a factor i felt like i was being pushed from the side alot. but maybe i just need more time in the seat to get use to the bigger bike.

a taller wider windshield might help. forget the short rides take a ride on the wing like you would on the cb400. you've got to get your mind off the fact that you are on the wing, its just a bike. a special bike for sure

It was windy for us today but I put a belly pan on this winter and a lot has been said about the belly pan taking the starch out of crosswinds and semis out on the interstate, and I have to say, I thought it was pretty good riding although it was windy and I passed several trucks on the interstate today without incident with respect to fighting wind.

Any new bike will take some getting used to. Ride it often and far and you will love it.
