Could anyone give some info on the effect of the wind on a bike's brake lever when riding above 60 mph? I have wondered how much pressure that a 70mph wind has on pushing in the brake lever.

Don't know about stock levers, never worried myself but the Leather tassels that some of the H-D riders put on their levers can cause the enough drag to turn on the brake light at 50 on up.
