    Was doing some tidying up of the bike and decided to renew the screen. Was previously running the Honda touring screen, replaced with the Givi. It's a little higher and has a slight spoiler at the top, certainly reduces buffeting and makes for a much more relaxed commute! I think it looks pretty good too.

    Love this bike, she's been mine for three years and love it more all the time![​IMG]

    Looks good. I was planning on getting that one. Is that the tallest screen sold to date?

    I had the Givi Touring screen on my last 6th gen ... on my current one I went with the MRA Vario Touring screen and love it even more.

    Wouldn't really want it taller, no need, this keeps you right out the wind apart from your head.

    It was a toss up between this and the Vario, only chose this as it was a bit cheaper.

    Depends on how tall you are, and how you have your bike setup. ;)

    I'm 6'0" and have helibars ... I want the extended height on the screen when I'm at interstate speeds on windy days.

    True Jeff, I'm a shorty at 5'10" and have kept the stock bars. Like you I like the extra protection, my commute is 25 miles at mainly motorway speeds. Albeit the first bit is lovely, a jaunt along the Gareloch with the odd nuclear submarine for company, then a scoot along the bottom of Loch Lomond. It's a nice start to the day!

    That sounds wonderful ... my daily commute is about 60km in each direction ... though most of my miles are put on traveling.

    Living on the open prairies, we get a lot of wind, so the extra adjustable foil on the top of the windscreen is very useful to have. Last year I put on about 35,000 km's in travel. ;)

    Tried out the Zero G Touring and didn't like it, so I reverted back to the OE screen, but I'm seriously considering either the Givi, or the MRA Vario. Never really got on with the looks of the Zero G, plus it did tend to buffet and I'm a short arse. Another thing that I didn't like was that it didn't secure in with the same number of bolts as used with the OE (2 less).

    I just put the Puig tall screen on my 8th gen and I think that I will have to take it off, it offers better protection than the stock shield but looks atrocious

    I've got the MRA Vario Touring Screen, absolutely love it, with it being adjustable it is a one size fits all kind of screen. Just play with it until you find a setting your happy with
