changing vtr1000 superhawk to streetfighter

Hey every one out there names BOOM7239.
well recently i was ran into the curb by a Mercedes be cause he chose to just switch lanes(no signal just swerve to right lane) instead of waiting on the truck in front of him doing a u turn. Ignoring the fact that im riding a motorcycle right next to him. MY back tire jumped the curb and bucked me strait up off the bike as it began to lay sideways. so after the fairing damage (no frame sliders :() i decided to tryout the street fighter look. im new to riding (around 6-7 months) this being only my 3rd month on a bike this big(1st bike a ninja 250). Now the question i have is how much more is the wind going to push me around? it did sorta push me around already but with the bike being pretty heavy (1998 vtr 1000 superhawk aka the 996) was not to bad ,plus i would lean dwn behind the windshield.

Non issue. My triple is as naked as it gets and only in heavy wind (or above 85/90) is it even a little annoying. The badassery that comes with riding a fighter outweighs the increased wind, IMO.
