Hi. there is a lot of talk here about wind noise and screens etc but does anyone find that the fairings and tank direct air to your crotch. I find it very drafty. My first 50 mile run ( i mainly commute about 14 miles a day) in cold weather played havoc with my bladder. I might get the deflectors I saw on Honda's accessories catalog, or thermals.

The usual cure for this condition is to put on your rain pants.  I've worn my Frogg Togg rain suit as much for cold as for rain.

Must admit, I'm still wearing 'long john's' under my bike denims at the moment!!  They'll go when some heat arrives, if it ever does.....
