    I just purchased a Puig racing shield and I have a 700 mile trip planned by the end of the month so I'll be able to tell you more. The OEM shield is just not enough for me, maybe good for the Summer though. The Puig is probably slightly maybe 1.5 to 2 inches. I'll take a pic for you. One of my concerns with a bigger screen is that too much drag must equal less gas mileage? Anyone disagree?

    BTW, I just realized this was a Gen I question and I have a Gen II.

    Thanks for all the input in this thread. I think I am going to look at Ordering a Zero Gravity Sports Touring Windscreen. I think that should work great for me, I am only 5'10" so it should push most of the wind over my head, the current screen which I do not think is stock is way too small for my daily Freeway use.

    I suppose a low screen and you prostrate on the gas tank will lower your Coefficient of Drag but I don't see it as a major issue as long as you are sitting up.

    I have a couple, but the one I really like is a Cee Baileys.

When I bought my bike it had a taller touring screen that I didn't care for. I switched it out for the Zero Gravity DB screen and it was a small improvement, but still get some buffeting. I think something like the Copperdog or Magical Racing screen may be better for me. These are more angled back and not as upright. Don't have the funds right now to try out either one Attached are some pics of both screens I've had on my bike.
