Just snagged a slightly used one off craigslist for about $500....

So far I love it. Reduces all wind hitting my head/helmet and now I can turn my head without feeling like my helmet is gonna launch off like a parachute is attached to it.

Not as good as the cee&baileys I had for my 1150GS, but that's a whole different bike/setup. But it is definitely a huge improvement and I feel like I could do some serious miles without being annoyed. With the stock screen I was getting fatigued and annoyed after 15 minutes on the road. Plus, going off road is a simple adjustment to lower it.... And it looks great, which is a plus

I do not like the plastic parts they supplied. I switched out the plastic knobs that tighten the screen down with metal wing nuts(should be easier to loosen, especially with gloves on) and am in the process of replacing the plastic knobs that connect the windscreen to the bracket with some metal cap bolts. One of the plastic caps stripped out and they were all loose after some off-road riding. I think metal ones will hold much much better.
