I think if you could add something like that to your mix you'd sell tons. Something that would bolt on to the mirage or the desierto systems.

I recently installed the CalSci 20" windscreen on my GS8 and went for on a nine-hundred mile trip. AMAZING. Absolutely leaps and bounds better than the OEM BMW screen. I'm 6'1 with a 32" inseam and the air stream hit the top of my helmet providing some much welcomed air flow, perfect. I have the screen adjusted to its most "laid back" position. Wind noise was cut down dramatically. I now listen to tunes at 2/3rds volume from my iTouch, instead of 95%. All in all, a great purchase. Well worth the two-hundred bucks!

I ordered bar risers today. So, adjustments may have to be made. Maybe move the screen to the "middle" position, since I will be sitting taller. I'll keep you posted.

Being able to adjust the screen while going down the road was one of the things I really liked about my FJR. That and the motor. I really miss that motor

If you come up with something let us know.

Jon...

If you have not experienced the FJR 3rd gear roll-on from 40 mph to 90+ mph you are in for a treat

I wonder if:
some version of the motor/jack screw from "some as yet to be identified" car with flip-up head lights would work?
Electric antenna motor?

Hi,
Ive been using the WRS windscreen for some time now, but only for my daily commute at urban low speed areas, occasionally topping 120 km/h. At those speeds, the noise inside my helmet was reduced a lot, as well as the buffeting. Since then Ive been able to use my Cardo G4 to listen music at a much lower volume...
The finish is very good and the material appears to be very resistent to scratches, but the windscreen originaly shakes a bit, so Ive installed the bwm touring windscreen support...Actually, Im very satisfied with this combination (WRS + bmw support) plus Touratech handguards.

Regards

If you have the BMW touring screen could you take a pic with the comparison? How tall are you and what is your inseam?

I have a BMW touring screen and have vowed to not put it back on. For the time being a I have F658GS screen on my bike.

Thanks.

Hmm... Well that doesn't sound terribly inspiring... I thought it looked pretty decent in the pics on their web site but they don't show it from a lot of angles there.
