I run a Givi AF330 and adventure winglets on my non-adventure 08 GS, made a huge positive difference.

There is a big difference between air flow (wind) and turbulent air flow (noise). I'm gonna take a wild guess and say that most would prefer more of the former than the latter!!!

I'm with JustKip on this one. The Givi Airflow works extremely well for me at 6'3". Though it's adjustable I find myself using the sliding section in the lowest position, with negligible turbulence. If it's hot weather I take the top section off.

Good to hear on the Give. The stock on my 05 is in need of replacing so I ordered one yesterday. I've run the stock with a TT spoiler for the last 80K and although it is fine for straight on, any cross wind will have you shifting your head to get back into clean air. That sux when doing a long stretch and ends up giving me shoulder cramps.

I decided to give the MRA X-creen on my stock GSA screen a shot.
No feedback yet, if I could just get a decent day to ride I'd let you all know.

I put a GSA screen and winglets on mine



It's a pain to keep stopping and adjusting the screen to find the sweet spot (which I guess is why the new LC GS has an adjuster in the cockpit), but once I found the zone, its great

IMO the Z TEchnik Vstream seems to be the best looking of the options..because i think it resembles so much the stock BMW screen..the search continue..wind deflector..or full windscreen swap..$150 price difference..but ZTechnik have a RideandBuy program so if anyone knows of a place in LA..
