I've put the Ermax on mine - for me it's much better than the stock Honda screen - more upright, with a pronounced curvature to the screen - taller and wider as well
I tried both standard and higher screen last week on the dealer's demo bike. Both put a lot of turbulent air around the helmet.I am 1.78 and I find that I get a fair bit of buffeting from the standard scree. I think it might be better if it were a bit lower! Maybe one of those vario things is a good idea?
I'm guessing that puts your helmet about 3 inches lower than mine. But since the view past the top of the touring screen was for me 'distracting' I would be surprised if your view wasn't badly affected by a mud covered screen. And of course if a person is short enough in the body to be well shielded by the screen, he or she is more than likely too short in the leg to be comfortable on a tall adventure bike. Having said that my daughter is about 3 inches shorter than me and yet has legs 2 inches longer ... so it would work for her :laugh:I have the Honda High screen and to be honest I cant tell any difference! With the standard screen cruising at 70 mph I can't feel anything,neither can the pillion, its super smooth! no turbulence at all.The high screen may give a bit more protection if its raining perhaps? but not sure.

... I'm also 6ft 2" - how did you get on with the standard screen at 60-80 mph? I don't mind wind pressure, but hate buffeting.I tried a bike with the Honda High Screen. I found on the Motorway if I dropped the seat to the low pos it was perfect. When on the back lanes it was too high like that but if I raised the seat it was great.
I prefer to ride on the high seat setting but for a motorway blast it was handy to be able to drop the seat and hunker down behind the screen.... worked for me. Changing the seat is easier than changing the screen.
Also, no buffering. I'd take that for a little less protection any day.
