Question Something to help the buffeting?

So, I was wondering if there is something I can do to keep my head and body from feeling like they're getting thrashed around by the wind. When I tuck in as much as possible it helps, but it's very uncomfortable.

Seems like my options are to either:

1) Get a DB or touring windscreen

2) Get an expensive helmet

3) Lose a lot of weight

4) Suck it up and get used to it.

Right now I'm 5'10" 210 lb with a fairly large chest. Have a Joe Rocket 101 series helmet, stock windscreen. Ride a 2007 ZX6R.

Any help is appreciated. I tried to be as thorough as possible, but if I left out any important info, let me know.

Thanks!

Tight leather jacket helps a lot.

A double bubble clear because a tinted shield and smoked screen make it really hard to see when tucked.

pull in your elbows and ride on the of your feet w your knees against the tank.

Makes a solid bowl to capture air and not go around your chest/arms, pulls your back tighter and stops your jeans/lowers from smacking around so much

If your fairly new to riding sportbikes, based on your profile, what Cali said will help and it's also something you kinda have to get used to.
A db will also make a big difference.......and more seat time.
