We all have different tolerance levels for vibration and other discomforts. For instance, I also find that the stock windshield is fine even with a peaked adventure style helmet (Schuberth E1). I've been on thousand mile extended weekend camping rides, on and off road, low speed to as fast as the bike will go - and I've not experienced the intolerable buffeting some other Norden owners have complained about. Yes, the wind off the windshield strikes me in the chest, and the helmet is completely in the slipstream, but I can ride for days on end at highway speeds and not experience neck strain or other discomfort. I'm just under 5'9" (175 cm), with a long torso and short legs.Compared to my Africa Twin it was I found it very viby. I did a few hundred miles rides before and after my installation of the XTrig bar mounts and the difference is definitely noticeable. Now on my 3,000 mile rides I know I will be much more comfortable. As well I aged the pivot pegs and those too are a game changer on long distance rides.
