It's great for low speed and off-road, IMO, (oh and looks) but not so good on the highway. Damn!

Anyone else feel this way? Mind you, I have an Aeroflow on my 1150 Adventure (not a good comparison).....but this doesn't even come close. It's actually better with the tiny F650GS screen, noise-wise, which barely comes above the gauges. Do I need to sell it and buy the big-ass Aeroflow? Damn!

Bummed in Austin
This is not good news for me, I'm expecting my new Desierto III to be delivered tomorrow. Definately want less noise as original screen is crazy loud for me. Whats your length and what kind of seat are you using? Maybe there will be a barely used D3 for sale here soon =).

ps. If were talking big/quiet screens, is the AeroFlow best in class? Might order one of them if this doesn't work.
