Today, I experienced lot of windblasts on the freeway, I was riding against the wind at 80-100 mph. And it was pretty scary, because the wind was pushing me back, off the bike. It was like riding the bike for the first time, I found myself using death grips just to hang on. The entire time... I had to adjust between grabbing it like a sponge or baseball bat. I had to tuck down, but wasn't great, it felt the tank was too high under me belly to get a tuck in position. Or may be the clip-ons were too high to stabalize the bike. What scared me was the wind was pushing the bike back and forth, it was pushing me, and the steering was moving right and left, had difficulty keeping a steady line. Especially at night around large vehicles. It seemed that it was a lot easier to go 70 through a 180-deg decreasing corner than going straight on the freeway at that speed.
So how do you guys cope with it, especially at 130+ mph? Any ideas what I could do, may be get some aftermarket clip-ons to lower the bars? That would reduce the comfort around town though.
Stock clip-ons (the F4 also has a weird sloping bulge on top of the tank, unlike the gixxers):
