Hello there.

I must be the odd one out here... I'm 6'7 in my boots and changed to a very short 'sport' screen.. So, I'm in the wind but without any buffeting/turbulence. I'm used to naked bikes with short screens so this is right for me. I may use the original tall screen for our regular week in the Eifel mountains come September. See how it goes.
Plenty of useful tip on here, ideas from the states, oz, no and elsewhere.

Best tip from me. ACF your rims and spokes before... Or if the bike sees salt.
