Since adding the winglets, I've noticed less buffeting and turbulence. However, there is more perceived noise around my helmet. If I duck down a couple of inches, my head gets into a nice quiet zone. This makes me think that my next purchase will be the Givi, for its extra height. I still keep the Z-T screen in the most rearward position, as there's more noise and turbulence as I raise it up. FWIW, I'm 5'9" w/a 30" inseam. I've got the 12GS w/a BMW low seat and I wear a Shoei RF-1000 helmet. Hope this helps. If the Givi works out, I'll probably have a Z-T screen for sale. PMs welcome...

Thanks for the input, that's the same shield I was asking about. I'm a little 5'11" with 32" inseam, i'm using the standard seat set with front high and rear low using a Nolan flip lid. My experiance is similar as your's relative to buffeting and noise. I think I may give these a shot, worse is tht I end up with some extra holes....
