Does anyone have some advice on windscreens for a newbie who has only 150mi logged ever on my new bike. Weestrom 2011
I am looking to get better wind protection and am also concerned about safety if that comes into play. Some discussions advocate Givi Calsci and others. How far above the windscreen can your head be to have the wind pass over the helmet? Adjustability how important to wind direction and different riding conditions is it? What about the lip on a screen Calsci says it creates turbulences and looks like a good screen (technically) The Madstad also looks promising as a companion to a fixed screen. What about scratching cleaning
So any comments are welcome

Givi Airflow

I've installed the Givi Airflow on my Wee to no regret.
It comes in 2 pieces, the lower which is attached to the bike in place of the original and the upper screen that allows you to adjust the height that best fits you.
I normally keep the upper screen in the garage when riding only urban, when I get to an open road/highway I attach the upper one (just slide it in, no tools needed) and enjoy a safe, buffeting-free ride at 100 miles per hour.
If rain comes, i lift it to the tallest position and could even enjoy a cigar while riding without getting a single drop in my "puro":thumbup:
I'm over 6 tall with a long torso. The piece has 2 places to direct the airflow, the lower in the mounting and the second between the 2 screens and I think thats what eliminates turbulence.
Ride safe and GL

Last Fall I installed the "Perfect Strom" windshield from Cee Bailey". I used their chart to get the proper size and installed it in the middle position as they suggested. It works as advertised. I can see over it, my helmet is in clean air, and I have NO BUFFETING. Also, I don't need a Madstad. Just for kicks, I lowered the mounting position to the bottom and it works just about as well. The only difference I can tell is that I get an occasional bug on my face shield which didn't happen with it in the initial position. It looks better mounted lower so that's where I have it. If I were to set out on a cross country trip I MIGHT raise it, but then again, maybe not.

I'll use this shield most of the time, only changing over to my little sport shield when the heat of the Summer gets here.

In my opinion, it is aptly named.

Good luck, searching for the windshield that makes you happy can be a tedious task. This is my experience and result.

FYI, I got the "light tint" and it looks great.
