    how much does headwinds of 10-20mph slow you down?

    I would guesstimate the same as a low-to-middle sized hill
    I have found that crosswinds are worse for control
    my haro was very light and I would get tossed all over, but my deviate is a tank and hardly notices

    haro? and yes side winds are horrid I deviate about 7-10 inches back and forth when they hit.

    ahh gotcha. I will be converting the mikes bike to threewheeler hopefully that will make it more stable :)
     
  6. One day, I had a headwind from the North that was so bad, my bike wouldn't accelerate over 20MPH. In fact, it was so strong that it was interrupting the intake!

    If I turned the bike at any direction other than North, it would accelerate, but at North it seemed like it couldn't get any air in the intake. This was with the stock "4-hole" plastic airbox. Needless to say, turning South made that bike fly!
