First time I rode a motorcycle with a w/s was in 1985. I had just bought a '78 Yam. XS 650 and it had one of those butterfly looking windshields (popular for jap bikes in the '70's & '80's) on it. The next day I took it down the Interstate, got hit with a high cross-wind (a common occurrence here in ND), and almost smacked the guardrails on a bridge going over the Missouri Riverr. When I got home I removed it and sold it to a neighbor for $10. The next year I added a Suzuki GS550E w/Calafia fairing, trunk and bags to my stable. I really didn't have any problems with crosswinds riding this. Only put about 25k on the Suz. while I put about 77K+ on the Yam. The only time I use my w/s on my Sporty is long rides in unpredictable weather.
