Anyone cut down F800GS windshield? (...tall riders?)

Hey everyone -

Searched a lot on this, haven't come up with anything....

Like most people, my head gets beat up like crazy at speeds >70 mph with turbulence. Of course one solution to this is to upgrade to a touring screen, but I can't convince myself to spend >$100 on something huge, floppy, and ugly to try and stop the wind. Also, being 6'4", might need quite a bit of windshield to hide from the wind.

Has anyone just cut down the stock windscreen flush with the gauges etc, to just distribute the wind over your entire body rather than taking it all on the head?

I'm a day away from doing it, don't want the neck fatigue and noise of getting bounced around so much anymore. Or maybe it's time to add a 1200R with a touring screen for all the highway traveling?

Thanks! Curious who has tried it and what the result is...
