More Air Flow On Hot Days

I just bought a 2007 R1200GS with the Cee Bailey windshield and it works great for cruising down the interstate at 75, really keeps the wind off your chest and head. Only problem is it's been 95 degrees here lately and I'd like a little more airflow maybe around the bottom of the windshield that will help keep me cooler. Anyone know of deflectors made for this purpose? I've seen the the Wunderlich deflectors, but it seems they're made to keep the wind off of you.

Your best option is to put a smaller windscreen on for the summer.

If I get warm when driving, I open a window. If I get warm when on the GS, I stand up on the pegs.

Buy a used shield for cheap.
Cut it down, way down.
Spray the inside of the shield the same color as your bike.

Cool.

Okay, looks like I'm in the market for a stock shield.
