2013 F800GS - Tinted Windscreen

Looking to upgrade the stock windscreen to a taller version (I'm 6'4) which is also tinted. Any suggestions on the best manufacturers to consider?

I have one made by Touratech on my 700. I'm 6' and it cuts through the wind nicely.

Mirage 2

I have the Mirage 2 http://www.britanniacomposites.com/i...ucts/mirage214 and love it. The new screen he is producing I'm told is about one and half inches taller and should work well for your height. I'm 6.2 and the current model is great. Comes in a tinted version.

I have this one as well. 6'3". 34" inseam. I like it a lot. All the way down takes all the pressure off my shoulders and chest and my head is in clean air. All the way up, it is quiet and mostly clean air. There is a bit of buffet on the shoulders when it is up, but no pressure. I will be getting the tall screen when he has some, because it is just a touch too short. The dash is great too. Guages are more in front of you, and lots of room for accessory switches and GPS mount. My best farkle so far next to the mod skidplate.

Try the Madstad. It is the only one I have found that works.
