Regular GSW tinted screen on a GSAW

Anyone have any pictures of the standard BMW tinted GSW screen fitted to a GSAW, as I'm trying to decide which to go for?

tinted screen

Lorelei has the regular GS screen albeit tinted, with tinted side screens too. Along with the BMW headlight protector, which is angled and fits the bottom edge of the screen contour, the airflow is far better IMHO. still a bit of turbulence on the edges of the helmet, but the main flow hits now in the bottom center of my helmet shield and is much more pleasant even with an Arai XD4 with bill.

That looks and sounds good. Can I ask for a couple more pictures from further away please.

More pics

Sorry for the delay, here are a couple of higher res shots out on my OneDrive.





Hopefully this shows up correctly. Kind of a noob posting pics.

Thanks for that, looks good. One front on from a reasonable distance would be good. Then I'll stop annoying you!

Can I ask why you are putting a regular GS screen on a GSA.
I'm interested because I test rode both bikes last week and was surprised that I liked the regular screen best. I expected the GSA to be way better.
Thanks

why

Although I have a single cylinder thumper F650, my previous interslab bike was an 07 K 1200 GT. Along with a Schuberth S2 lid, the airstream hitting the helmet right at the chin/shield junction was the best combo of quiet I could find on that bike. I'm a little sensitive to low freq turbulence.

So when I got the new GSA, the stock shield shape was just too high and left a lot of whumping at freeway speeds of 60-75. The airstream always seems to interfere with the bill of the Arai XD4 I usually ride the GSA with. So I opted for a shorter shield and the tinted variety to cut down the instrument glare.

Any chance of a front on picture of the smaller GS screen, from a few feet away?

Also considering this option, but I have a bit more time...
Reasons for small window:
1 I am short, so the short one works great for me
2 Using a lower seat
3 I like tinted and with the short screen I can look over it.
4 A bit more airflow in the summer when it is hot.
