Yeah it's still pretty noisy, but I also have a full rack on top. I'm sure the fairing would help with the noise, and the basket comes with it's own small fairing but it whistles. I'll mess with it a bit and get it to stop but honestly, I always have my music up so I don't hear it LOL. And with the sunroof closed, i'm good.With the wind fairing, how loud is it? The one I have right now doesn't have a fairing and boy does it get loud.
