To dovetail onto this, when does streamlining come into play, vs the additional weight of the fairings? I am guessing the streamlining only matters at higher speeds.
For those of us riding at back-road speed on vintage machines, does a fairing really help us compared to the lighter weight of an unfaired bike, vs someone riding at track speeds?
Is a half-fairing or nose bowl a useful compromise in aerodynamics and weight, or just an ergonomic consideration for keeping wind blast off the rider?
