I had an airstream on my 2014 and it was great, but i was just looking at the Puig as a cheaper option. How are you liking yours now that you've got 6 months of use on it?
Hard to say exactly because it's the only windshield I've used, but here goes.
The Puig worked pretty good for me this summer. I rode about 3000 miles, with about 2500 of those miles two up. The Puig seemed to work better when riding solo.
Mount position is important. I used it in the lowest mounted position except for one time when I had it in the middle attachment position. I didn't like the middle bolt-on height and returned to the lowest bolt-on position. I did add 5mm thick spacers between the windshield and the mounting arms to allow a little more space for air to travel "thru" the windshield, and these spacers did improve the windshield just a bit. It might be worthwhile to cut off a little (an inch or so?) off the very bottom of the Puig to allow more air to flow "thru" the windshield.
The Puig windshield works very well with the V Strom 1000's windshield angle easy adjustment. The closest angle position provides nice steady clean air, allowing the helmet vents to do their thing. The next position is a good compromise between deflecting bugs and minimal buffet. The most forward position really keeps the bugs off my face shield, but tends to rattle the helmet at times. And this all changes with relative wind speed.
All of this will be dependent on your "sitting" height, meaning, how high is your helmet in relationship to the top of the windshield. For reference, I'm 5' 11" with 32" inseam, and I have a modified seat which holds me just a tad taller than the stock seat. It seems that if I were sitting an inch lower, the Puig would be almost calm.
And of course, strong cross winds really mess things up.
One thing else to note, is helmet choice. Some helmets will catch the top turbulence and make a small situation horrible. I have a Shoei GT Air which is exactly that- a small amount of turbulence sounds like a jet engine. On the contrast, I have a Scorpion EXO 1000 which is just a tad small, so not so comfortable, but the EXO is substantially less noisy. Plus, the EXO doesn't fog very easily. So much for "pay more, get more".
Hope all this helps.
