    I like the Secdem from France. Abt two inches higher, tinted, sporty shape. Don't know where to get them anymore. A bike acc store in Quebec did have them a few years back. Maybe Verholen or someone has a similar one. The one I have makes the ride just right for me...and Viki.

    What I'm using

    MRA variable windshield in dark tint:


    I like it but at 6-1 there's only so much wind diversion a shield can accomplish....

    Helen had a tinted one on hers, unsure of brand at moment, she rode mine with the stock screen doing an A-B test a few times one day. To her, the little lip on the stock screens top edge made a big difference in wind turbulance, her aftermarket did not have the rolled lip feature. I felt a little more wind on her aftermarket,but not as much as she did. 6'1 vs. 5'6"
    Notice spanky has a piece of rubber edging it appears, maybe that would help with wind and the rain roll off? I know it does on our 1100S.

    It really helps divert rain. It was included with the windshield and also seems to add a more finished look to the assembly.

    And here's a close up of the Leo Vince exhaust because another member inquired about it:

    Thanks for the compliment. Between the black & yellow and my similar themed Scorpion helmet I tend to have a "hi viz" look while on the road. I like it, people notice the color scheme and tend not to run into me.

    I bought it through A&S BMW. It's comfortable and unlike the stock seat doesn't shove your junk into the tank. The seat is made by Bagster, a French manufacturer of MC goodies.
