Madstad on a 15-up: Cigars?

Folks, on my '13 FLTRU with a 12" madstad, I could smoke a cigar pretty close to highway speeds.

I have an LRS on my '17 FLTRU, and it aint workin. Ashes, smoke, etc hitting me in the face.

Kind of a weird question, but if any of you folks who have a 15+ bike with a madstad and are successfully smoking cigars (or not), would be interested to hear your experiences....

TIA!

What size and style LRS do you Have? I don't smoke, but with my 16" thresher I am pretty isolated from the wind. Especially if I am using the low tour solo seat.

Have you tried closing the vents in different combinations?

Maybe load your cigar tobacco in one of those enclosed pipes like reds4 would use.

OK, thanks guys. The LRS I have is a 12", I'm close to 5-10.

I might just try the Madstad again. Anyone have a pic of a 12 dark on their 15-up?
