I just bought an 08 DL1000. Unfortunately the stock windshield directs the flow of air right at my helmet--very noisy! (Seemed even noisier than my buell blast which has no windshield at all!) Looking around online I found a lot of aftermarket windshields... Can someone who is 6'2"+ vouch for any of the options out there?

Thanks!

--here are some of the windshields i came across

I went with the Givi. I'm 6'3" and incredibly manly. The Givi provides sufficient clean air so that I can nap peacefully at freeway speeds.

I’m 6’5 and use the Madstad with a Givi shield. I also have a mpcycledesign that I sometime use in the winter. However, I believe many shields can work just fine if you have the adjustability provided with the Madstad mount. So I would say get the Madstad mount first and then you should be able to make many different shields work just fine for you, maybe even the stock shield.

Just my two cents and you got a bargain today because you got it for free.:-D

You can get a tall MRA shield now; I believe 4"s have been added; it's been good to me so far.

6'2" and have CalSci XL with Madstad. Great protection. Just this weekend, I through the OEM shield back on just to compare. Wow! The CalSci provides great coverage.
