Aeroflow windshield sizing question

I want to put an Aeroflow windshield on my 2005 1150GS, as I'm headed on my first adventure this summer from the NYC area to Nova Scotia. I'm wondering what size I need. I'm 6'1". Anyone with experience willing to share?

Thanks!

Will

Call AeroFlow (888) 237-6777. I am 5'10" and use their standard height windshield mounted to a 2001 BMW R1150GS with the standard seat. I think it works fine but he owner of Aero Flow thinks I would get better protection with the next height taller wind shield. I use a Arai XD4 helmet with no wind buffet problems. With the standard height windshield I look over it weather than through it. I don't think I would like looking through it.

I am 6'3" 34" inseam and have the tall. Perfect height, not in my line of sight. It puts the airflow right at the top of my helmet.

Not what I would call a reliable source.

You don't say if you use bar risers or what seat you use. Makes a big difference. On my 1150, the tall shield was fine with the stock seat but I needed the short shield (what Aeroflow calls a "standard") when sitting on my Corbin. And I was sitting more erect than stock because I had 1.5" risers. I'm 6'1".

Thumb height

If it's to high you can cut/trim it but if to low....
