Where did you happen purchase your Givi from? Ever since your first post on here about it I've been looking to purchase one and it seems as if everyone is out of stock. Thanks!I'm 6’-3’’ and 200lbs. 33-34 inseam. I can comfortably but just flat-foot both feet with the seat in the high position.
Wind buffeting with taller riders is a common problem even on the ATAS with its taller OEM screen.
I found the solution for me: The Givi Tall Sport Touring Windscreen (D1144ST).
I replaced the OEM screen just 4 days after purchasing my ATAS. (I found out real fast, on day two, my first time out on the highway, that I simply could not tolerate the buffeting *and buzzing* caused by the OEM screen).
The Givi screen, for me, is, in a word: Perfect.
The only update I have to my review post on this windscreen (link below) and the many other glowing things I’ve said about it in other posts is that I have now gone for a 260-mile day trip, up and back for a total of 520 miles and 8 hrs. in one day, with a couple hours of off-roading in between, and it was pure bliss. Temp was in the mid-60s on the way down, upper 50s back, but it was sunny, and I was wearing my Bell Custom 500 open-face helmet with the retro snap-on visor. Rode Interstate 81 down to just beyond Blacksburg at speeds between 75 – 80MPH the whole way, with my brother and cousin. We then spent a few hours off-roading on my uncle’s farm and back home in the afternoon (but that’s for another post—This Bike! …This Bike! …This Bike)!
The ride down was so comfortable, relaxing even. With the beautiful mountains on either side, running down the Shenandoah Valley, it was pure bliss. The bike was comfortable in every way. The 20mm risers did their job too and my hands and arms had no complaints. Purring along at 75 MPH, the bike seemed in its element—seemed like it was made for the highway; it felt big and capable. But wait! On the dirt, it seemed like it was in its element! It felt lighter and it downright frothed in its dirt DNA. Man, I love this bike.
I hope you get your buffeting issue sorted. For me, it was literally NIGHT and DAY with the Givi. The bike is a joy to ride at speed. But others have had success with other solutions. Your helmet is a factor too… but I figure if it works with an open-faced helmet with a snap on visor, it will work even better with a proper full-faced or modular, unless it’s got one of those large peak visors.
And I have to get my modular helmet soon. Too cold for open-face now. But like everything else when purchasing accessories, the sheer volume of options is so dạmned overwhelming.
Good luck man.
Here’s the review post I did a couple of months ago if you're interested. And if you search the Parts and Accessories sub-forum there are more threads on this subject.
Ps. Note: The daytrip was done without my Touratech Panniers attached, for what it’s worth. Because I was going to do my first fairly serious off-roading, I didn’t want to chance dinging up my pretty, new panniers(!), so I strapped an old Barbour messenger bag to either side of the Touratech frame with a few items for the day wrapped in old towels (to give the bags some heft and cushioning in a fall or tip-over). Worked like a charm. Here’s a pic of the bike the night before we left.
(And to keep it on subject, you also get a pretty good view of the curvature of the Givi windscreen from this angle too). :wink2:
