    I too need a taller screen. I'm 5'11" and have the BMW touring screen. It's 20 in. in length but it funnels every *@#%^&! bug into my open visor. Even if I just crack it open a little! So I'm looking into a Parabellum Sport Fairing. I like the way they look and they have tall screen options. Not sure how tall the screen should be though. I've heard that it should be just below your eyes. I just want to be sure that every bug on the planet doesn't smack me in the face!!

    That's odd indeed. As I am within an inch of your height (six feet) and do not have that issue, at all.

    I wonder what the big differences are... I am mostly long torso and short legs, too...

    I did install some bar backs that helped me sit a little more upright. But even before that it was to low.

    i have a Parabellum shield which causes horrible wind buffeting above 50 MPH. Has anyone used an AeroFlow shield? They make a sport and touring shield.

    How tall you are will impact screen post purchase happiness.

    I bought Bob's MRA Vario, pictured above, and since I am short, it's perfect.

    I had a Parabellum, and the buffeting at highway speeds was a lot.

    I had the 19" inch Parabellum though. Too short.

    I would get the 23" if I had a do over.
    Sig? What's a Sig?
