F800gs windscreen

I have the factory touring windscreen and don't think it works well at all! there is much less turbulence standing up and away from it than sitting in behind the screen. i have tried just about every position to see if an adjustment in height might help but no luck. Have any of you tried any of the aftermarket screens in comparison to the OEM? I need to change something but dont want to have a garage full of plexi from testing.
By the way absolutely love the bike, on road, off road, it doesn't seem to matter it just keeps rolling.

Screen

I also purchased the BMW touring screen and higher bracket. Didn't like turbulence and so I ordered the TT touring screen. Once mounted, I drilled through the windscreen by drilling through the bracket. Installed screws with rubber washers. Much better protection and not windscreen flexing.

Med lite tillpassning och mindre modifiering borde det funka tror det skulle se bra ut.

With some minor modification i think it would look great!
