Is it worth using a deflector or tilt regulator in the motorcycle?

Probably no motorcyclist who had the opportunity to travel for several hundred kilometers by the motorway does not need to be convinced of how much noise reaches his ears. It is easy to guess that prolonged exposure to noise does not have a good effect on the driver's well-being, and thus also reduces his safety.

A quick and simple solution is to use earplugs, but this solution reduces not only those harmful sounds, but also those that we would not like to give up, like the sound signal of another participant of the movement. So what can you do in this situation?
You should first consider the cause of annoying noise. Everyone who remembers something from physics lessons can guess that the reason is the swirl of air around the helmet. One should therefore "do something" in the direction of "mastering" the stream of air, so that it would move in a different direction than the head of a motorcyclist. An additional advantage of the solution to this problem will be the smaller air resistance that will have to overcome the head, and therefore reduce the load on the cervical spine and neck muscles.
The simplest solution is to replace the windshield with a larger one, but in this case it will be troublesome to move slowly around the city, in a traffic jam, or on winding mountain roads where there is no possibility of developing high speeds. As an alternative, we can indicate the possibility of installing a deflector on the motorcycle screen. Deflector is usually regulated, so when we have to move more slowly for some time, we can direct the whole stream straight to the driver, improving ventilation, making the journey more enjoyable. On the other hand, after raising the deflector, we can direct the air above the head, which will reduce the noise level while driving at high speed.

The adjustable windshield bracket is also an ideal solution. The shield regulator allows for exactly the same as the deflector - it allows you to adjust the direction of the air flow, which makes it possible to adapt it to the current driving style. The plus here is that here for this operation we use the entire are of the windshield, which is why we can have a greater influence on the "aerodynamics" of our motorcycle.
