Sorry, Laminar's Standard Shield http://www.laminarlip.com/f800gs.php
I get a little buffeting but not enough to tire me and a bonus of some air movement from the gap between the BMW shield and the 'Lip'. It's a nice compromise for SoCal weather, a balmy 80 degrees today....

Having reviewed all the options, I think I like this the best. I'm keen to order one for my F8, anyone got one of these for a review?

AFAIK, it's still vaporware (Sorry, vapourware to you Aussies). No official word of when (or if) we'll ever get to see one in meatspace.

looks remarkably like the powerbronze windshield... i think perhaps metal mule (a UK company) buys them from powerbronze (a UK company) and resells them. just a guess.

I just ordered the lip today for the touring screen. Looks reasonable. I will post once I get it installed.

new screen for tall riders

Ok, so I not the Jolly Green Giant, but @ 6'3" with a long torso (32" inseam?), I sit pretty high on my F800GS. I am looking for the tallest screen I can get. I would like as much protection as possible.

I like the looks of the Cee Baily Tall Euro, but I am afraid it will be too short. Seems like I would still be getting buffeting right near my head.

The CalSci XL one sounds great and might work, but sure is Bfugly. I'm ok with the little hole though it though.

I am not a fan of an add on like the Lamiar Lip or some other such creations.

I scaned through every option on this thread so I am familir with most, but maybe I missed one of the other TALL screens. So what are my options? Any other tall riders out there with experience?

Thanks

I'm convinced that the best overall coverage for an aftermarket windscreen comes from Aeroflow shields. I have three of them on bikes I own now. The one on my 1150GS eliminates buffeting to everything from the boots up. I get a nice bubble behind the tall shield that makes it a pleasure riding in the northern climes. Southwest riding, however, is another story. For SW I added a Laminar Lip to my F8GS's standard screen. I get a nice bit of wind to my helmet and chest (I believe) from gap between the two but not too much that I'm uncomfortable.

Relevant to your post you should check out this note from a month ago from Aeroflow's site ... http://www.aeroflowscreens.com/CurrentProjects.htm

Wunderlich makes a couple of different size screens, also in clear and tinted.

I'm 6' with 29" inseam so I probably sit as tall as you. I have a CalSci XL and am pretty pleased with it. The air hits the top of my helmet, so it's pretty quite. Most windscreens deliver the air in the middle of my face shield so they are quit noisy. The top of the screen is in my line of sight about 30 ft from the front wheel. Not shown or mention on the website is that he has added supports between the windshield and the rear mounting points of the OEM windscreen. It's tall and ugly, but comfort trumps that.

That all said, I'm looking forward to what AeroFlow comes up with. From what I've seen and read, they should be superior.

My Screen

I reviewed the Touratech one and the Wunderlich but I thought that both of them threw of the curves of the bike a bit and decided to go with the aftermarket one BMW offers. It was pricey but worth it:
