noise

harp the noise from the wind is a little quieter only because you can hear the engine louder now and of course the shuberth doesnt help any probley all about the same db levels hope this helps

I found the same thing with my Schuberth and the Givi screen. With the Nolan N100 I did not experience this, the Schubert is slightly larger and I figure that the larger size must push it outside the quite air bubble - leading to the vibration.

I put on the Parabellum on Sunday and went for a three hour ride. First of all, it's very tricky to put it on by yourself... trying to hold up the screen and fiddle with the little nuts (quiet in the peanut gallery) ain't easy - I ended up taping the nuts to the brackets, then screwing through, if you know what I mean.

Here are my measurements and my take on the Parabellum.

6', 32" inseam, Sargent seat, high seat setting, 1150GS.

It buffets. A lot. Quieter than my noisy Cee Bailey's, and very good at keeping the wind off the body. But concussion-inducing buffeting. Also, it's such a large, upright screen that it really seems to act as an airbrake - whether true or not, it felt like the bike was slower to accelerate.

I only bought the screen from Killen to use as a drilling test platform. If Ricky ever shares his NACA templates, I'll cut into this one first, get a feel for it, then cut holes into my rather pricey Cee Bailey's.

This makes my fifth screen. And I'm no closer to nirvana. One of these days I may break down and try Big Ugly, the Aeroflow. If that doesn't work, I may shoot myself. Perhaps the holes in my head will work like NACA ducts.

I forgot to mention this. It may again be my imagination, but I thought the front end felt a little lighter, less planted, as well.

screen specs

Hey Blue, what's the specs on your CB? That looks like the size I'm looking for. And where the hell is your snow?

Screen Spec

I ordered the tallest and the CB standard width which is wider than stock (otherwise it hits my ascerbis handguards on a hard turn). It is the standard GS touring - not the adventurer. I like to be able to position the angle. It is the light grey color. Ask for steve at cb. tell him you want the same as barry in nyc. he knows my name. I am 6'2" and this has great coverage. attached is another shot of the screen height. hope this helps.

Ztechnik

I posted a mini-review and a couple of pics of my Ztechnik in the equipment forum under the "Ztechnik 1150 GS" thread. I should have posted it here. Oh well, Here is a picture I didn't post in that thread to make up for it.

later,

Aeroflow Update

I just recently completed a 4500 mile solo trip to the Southwest This was the first long ride with the Aeroflow. I rode in everything from 93 deg heat to 27 deg cold, some rain and some snow. Lot's of evil head and cross winds in Northern NM and AZ.

I remain absolutely satisfied with my Aeroflow screen. No buffeting ever, even into 40mph gusts. Never used electric clothing under my Belstaff clothing. Yes I did start to get uncomfortably warm between Phoenix and Vegas, but thankfully that part of the ride only lasted half a day.

I am 6'5" with a 33" inseam and 37" sleeve. I am very long waisted and use the tall screen. I only got nailed by a few bugs in the top of my Schuberth, my feet and the sides of my lower legs. The screen gets most of the bugs, including a fair amount that get sucked behind the screen and slide up the inside to their fate.

I hope this doesn't sound too much like a testimonial but by golly, I'm a satisfied customer...

Question Little Wing Thing

Man, I've got the GSAdventure and have been trying to figure out a good solution to the wind. When I'm in the twisties and around town, I like my screen. When I'm on the Interstate, I hate it. Though not usually on the Interstate, when I am, it's for long periods of time, giving me time to really, really hate the noise and buffeting.

I prefer to sit pretty tall on the bike most of the time, so I've got full-on air on my helmet. Over 70 it gets annoying, and over 90 a real pain. But when I hold my hand up sideways over the screen, it is MUCH better. Which got me thinking about the little clip on screen/spoiler/wing thing shown earlier in this thread. I think it would work about perfect, and I could attach it when I hit the Interstate, remove it the rest of the time. But, when I go to the manufacture's site, it's all in German, and I can't find the wing.

Anyone got any advice? Anyone know of another like product I could try?

If I can't get something like this to work, cheap, I'm going to have to take the truck on my long, gotta get there quick, trips. Or buy a taller shield, but I like mine except at high speed. It would be a whole lot cooler to ride.

Cheers...
Lashito

I notice the same thing when I hold my hand up over the screen, but having tried slightly higher screens without much improvement, I think it may have more to do with my arm being in a different position. YMMV.

If you guys ae talking about the Touratech spoiler, I have one and it doesn't make a bit of difference.

However, don't take my word for it - buy it from me and find out for yourself.
