The trade off is wind pressure on my upper body and wind noise. I always wear ear plugs so wind noise does not bother me. It was comfortable cruising below 75 mph. I have spent a small fortune on wind shields over the years and my conclusion is: go very short, or go very tall. In between the two is a waste of money.
