Barkbusters Storm

Installed new Storm handguards, went for 20 mile ride today. Seemed like much less wind noise with the new handguards. Anyone else experience something similar?
Thanks!

Hi
I installed barkbusters when i bought the bike last April for 2 reasons.
1. they are a lot stronger than the Honda ones. as my bike was a demonstrator the honda one s were broken after the bike slipped off its side stand.
2 For wind protection as you mentioned.
The Barkbusters have performed well. Had an off 3 weeks ago and didn't break any levers or mirrors . In fact the bike came off better than I did. Dislocated and Broke my ankle in 3 places and no riding for 3 months. Bugger !!. The bike lost a bit of plastic fairing around the tank. Certainly notice the good wind protection.
