How do you size a cee bailey?

i am definitely having problems with my windshield. if i go with cee bailey, what size should i get? I'm 6'1" and have lowered the bars about halfway down.

Is there a way to take a measurement from my current bmw tall shield and determine what i need? I want to make sure i'm not looking through the top - i hate that! But also want some peace and quiet!

thanks all

I'm 6'2" and the +3x+3 works for me on an R12RT with the seat in the high position. Call Ce Bailey they will suggest what size to buy I went with their suggestion and it works for me.

I am 6'3" and have a +2 +2 on my new GT. It's just a tad too short for me. I will be ordering a +4 +2 very soon. Anyone under 6' should do fine with a +2 +2.

I don't where you live but some BMW dealers will have loaner windshields for you to try out. I tried the Cee Bailey last week put three hundred miles on it. It was a bit high at +4 H +3 W so i ordered one an inch lower. I'm six foot with a 33 inseam. hope this helps.
