A lot of those coolers are inop, like freebeard says you need rear popouts. God I miss mine on the superbug. You could go 100 mph open a vent and not upset a hair on her beehive coiffed hair. Ok maybe 70 on a fresh engine.

If that's not enough it also helps when opening the front windows.

That's usually bad for FE (the cabin acting as a parachute), but rear pop-outs reduce that bad effect and cuts down the buffeting.

I wonder just how it decides what is "appropriate"? And how it works when you're say coming back from a day of cross-country skiing, wearing your down parka & wooly hat, and with icicles in your beard...
