Any opinions Norge's fairing stop the rain?
I am looking for a touring/sport/commuter with a full fairing that will stop the rain.
Many years ago I rode my 1970 Kawasaki 500 triple all day in the rain up the FL coast with a full Vetter fairing. I also had a full Vetter on my 1974 BMW 900. If I remember right, I was kept fairly free of rain, as long as I kept the bikes moving.
I use my present ride for commuting many times, not just weekend fair weather riding. I would like to keep my Honda VT1100C cruiser but I cannot find a suitable fairing for it.

I love riding the Norge in the rain. With the windshield in the high posiiton and as long as you're cruising, the rain flows around you. That said, you're not going to get home dry by any means. The Norge helps dissipate rain, but cannot make it disappear.
I carry LL Bean pant and jacket shells and waterproof boots in the bags when I expect the rain to come. That works quite well.
