You do.

Go to the nearest home improvement store and buy some plexiglas.

I'm 6'6" and I'm using the National Cycle V Stream, it's about as tall as I would want to go. Mounted in the 2nd set of holes from the bottom, I can see over it or if I want I can look through it if I slouch down somewhat. I don't like to have to look through a screen, if it rains you can't see throught it, or in my case a FF shield will also block even more of your vision. ---BB

yes, i agree about looking over the windshield. I like it to come up to just under my nose.

Givi Airflow

I am 6'1" and very happy with my Givi Airflow. I keep it in the lowest postion and the air stream is a couple of inches above my head, no buffeting.

I'm 6'2 and the CalSci XTall is an inch too tall for me with the Madstad. But he will make it higher or lower for you as required.

The Cee Bailey (at least the old design) is also tall but the corners vibrate.
