Did you use the aero template for the top view ?
It could be the hand drawing, but it looks a bit too fast
Follow that as closely as possible in all aspects (topview, sideview)
I'd extend it a bit further too, to reduce the wake.

See if you could lower the seating position, it'll greatly improve aerodynamics as seen on Burt Munro's or Allert's bikes.

If the helmet sticks out of the main shell, give it a fairing as well and blend that into the body.
