Useful info as well as hilarious, Sir Rhubarb. How can I join the NationalCycle testing crew?

Polycarbonate vs Acrylic

BTW, I assume the stock BMW screen for the water boxer is polycarbonate? Please advise.

Nice, thanks!

Thanks, in advance, for your reply.
1) Yes
2) Only purchased the Wunderlich support

* Puig screen is super :-)

Hi, I took a look at this support on their site and then looked at the bilateral supports for the brackets that are stock. I'm not quite sure how this increases the stability of the windscreen. Would you please explain? Thanks.

The larger screen "wobbles" in turbulent air (when riding behind another vehicle) or flexes backwards at speeds above ~80km/h (~50mph)
The lower part of the stock support brackets are plastic and flex in conditions as described above.

The Wunderlich support bracket is an additional position where the forces on the screen are distributed by, resulting in a stable screen.
(Hope this makes sense as English is not my mother tongue)

Yes, it does make sense and your English is quite clear. Thanks.

Screens...

I put 80k on my 08GS with the stock screen and an adventure screen with winglets (and about 10 other brief tries with other screens-Givi airflow worked the best but couldn't stand the look). My new GS (2013) is way better stock than my 08 was, no buffeting. I'm 5'10". I did add a laminar lip (works pretty well here in the Wisconsin cold) but am planning on the BMW adventure screen and winglets when available. I do notice more torso/upper leg wind on the new bike....
