faired will always outperform naked in general roadwork, esp as speed rises..
there are more radically vertical windshields which seem to work well..
rider body positioning is also a factor, in aerodynamics and comfort,
esp over the long distances,, for which a racing crouch is just one example..
one simple eg is resting left forearm on tank, taking torso weight,
which allows a nice change of overall body shape, thus muscle load..
if you have a tank bag or carry-bag thats also handy to rest on..
instead of thinking of a racing crouch as the only option to
'sit up and beg' [like a sail into the air flow] think overall small
incremental changes in all joints,, to whatever suits you
and the particular ride, on any given day..
