National Cycle V-Stream/M90 cont'd. I was able to get out this afternoon with my new V-Stream (touring) installed. Statistical criteria: I am 5'7” tall, 172 lbs., my M90 is stock, I have over 40 years riding experience. I currently wear a full face helmet with the shield normally up and wrap around style glasses to help protect my contacts. I will put the shield down on cold days, rainy and windy conditions and at higher speeds. Today I was able to do about 120 miles, speeds varied from city streets, 25/40, country roads, 45/55, to above freeway speeds, *% mph, to be exact. I didn't want to push it too far in the 55 zones. National Cycle got it right, not only does the V-Stream have a stylish appeal that does not take away from the streamlined looks of the motor but its functionality speaks volumes. Torso turbulence was completely eliminated which translates to a much more relaxed posture and grip. What turbulence was felt on the helmet was significantly decreased and the deflection provided by the V-Stream that was most noticeable was to my face. There was a drastic reduction to the amount of turbulence I normally take in the face. Based on some of the negative reviews I have read on other sites this was a major concern. I have lost too many contacts to count. I doubt that will be an issue sitting behind the V-Stream. For me this was an excellent addition to my enjoyment of being out on two wheels. Ride with Pride.
