Well I've had my Wing for almost four months now
Put 2100 miles on it.
I need to invest in a Givi Wind Screen but might wait till fall to go.

I'm 6'2' and the stock screen doesn't cut once I get over 60 mph

Gas mileage is a little disappointing at 46.9 mpg average.

I'd forgotten the joys of being hit by 25mph cross winds

The Wing doesn't really like cross winds , but I guess any
bike would be the same.

The power and acceleration is deceiving by how smooth it is
I only run the throttle up to 5000 rpm and vehicles disappear behind me.

To me the OEM windshield was worse in cross wind scenario.

Your mileage will probably increase as the weather warms up. Still 47 mpg is nice when you factor in all the fun of leaving others behind.

I have an oversized GIVI windshield and love it. After riding in Iowa for a few years I don't get how a 25mph breeze could have anything to do with anything.

If you think the wing doesn't like cross wounds, you should ride a fat boy Harley in a cross wind. Rented one in Hawaii and the North Shore had a few moments.

I LOVE the "wow" factor! I ride with a lot of cruisers and spyders and I'm changing their perception of a "Scooter". They couldn't believe I sold my motorcycle to go to a scooter but now that they seen how it rides, they aren't questioning it anymore.
