Speaking of a taller windshield, a friend made up a couple of taller shields and I've had one on my wheatwacker (ww) '07 since last May. I spent a week on the bike around Labor Day last year, exploring Gaspe and northern NB, mostly on well maintained gravel logging roads, some not so well maintained, some near abandoned, and some atv trails. The taller shield worked well with the 1 1/2" ww mod, though the top was a bit close to the adams apple when standing on the pegs off road. Personally, I think the shield should come off anyway when going off road, so it worked quite well otherwise. Here's a couple of pics from that trip, showing the taller shield with the ww mod:
