So, I was riding home from picking up my new/used willie and max saddle bags when I decided that my ass needed a break, But I didn't want to stop(Limited Time Frame). So I stood up. WOW! What a differance in wind noise! It was so much quieter! If I was only an 8' tall guy I'd be sitting just right. Just for refference I ware my helmet all the time so that will affect wind noise, But I was amazed. A guy standing at 70mph has less wind drag than the bike!
