Winter setting is up 2" (mouth level) just for cold protection and I could still raise it up another 2" if I were taller.
I don't know anybody else with an F800GS, let alone one with a Madstad shield installed

Looks like I didn't do my homework and should've got the Madstad. I think the VStream will hit the Flea Market in the next few weeks... it's a great shield, if I was about 6' or so. Ducking down the slightest bit results in clean air and nearly no wind noise. I will probably make up some spacers to see if changing the rake helps at all since it's soooo close now.
