I put a taller windshield on my 1990 and everyone was much happier. That might work on the 1800Yes it is worse especially with OEM windshield. Wife IMMEDIATELY let me know the '12 sucked. Turbulance hitting her at shoulder area. Wings under the mirror helped that and then I bought an Optic Armor +4.
I installed the wings by my knees also.
Wife liked the seat a lot better on '12 than on the 88. Plus it is heated.
