I put a small flyscreen on my bike. It looks good and it does a great job on keeping the wind off me. Highly recommend it and it does not take away from the look of the naked bike.

You get used to the riding naked after awhile. Only time it is bad for me is when the winds are pushing more than 25mph. It's not that bad any more.

When it's real windy or I want to go above 90 I get behind my and it keeps my arms and neck from getting so tired.
It helps reduce helmet buffeting too.

I have a scar from the windshield when my cruiser stopped unexpectedly and tossed me. When I rebuilt it I said to with the obstacles.

I really don't notice it anymore to be honest. I like it because it feels like you are going fast and makes it fun. Without the howl of the wind in my helmet it just feels like I'm in a car. The only time it bothers me is when I have a passenger. For some reason a headwind with a passenger turns me into a bobble head.
