The new Givi windshield has had some around town and backroad testing, but no highway stint. Until now, that is. On a beautiful day, it was time to get a good highway run at speeds north of 70 mph. The Sertao is certainly capable of speeds up and over 80 mph, but in my experience, it is most comfortable around 75 mph. With the new shield, wind buffeting is greatly reduced, but the bike still gets blown around a bit behind trucks, and the fron end gets light. The instrument cluster is much better, and I can now run with the cell phone on a ram mount that is not blocking the instruments. The shield has not transformed the bike into a transcontinental tourer, but is is much improved over stock.
