Abstract

A vehicle wind buffeting shield, a vehicle incorporating a wind buffeting shield, and a method of diverting upward air flow during operation of a vehicle using a wind buffeting shield are provided.

The at least one mounting member couples the flow restricting portion proximate a bottom portion of a gas tank of a vehicle such that the flow restricting portion projects generally horizontal and outwards from the vehicle and restricts upward air flow during operation of the vehicle.
