Lee,
Have exactly those two.
Cee Baileys off, V-Stream on: Mounting holes were spot on the money. Perfect! When on the seat, about an inch higher in the line of sight. Clarity not as good as CB but OK. Much better than stock. Must be elevated slightly to keep turbulance off the top of the helmet and that is high enough to have to look through the shield. Air pocket is "calmer" (probably because there isn't a lip on the top), takes a lot of the air off the shoulder area. (Pocket seems to be wider.) Has a negative pressure area in the pocket that tries to push your head forward (not uncomfortable.) Wife says she doesn't notice any appreciable difference
Yes, I would buy another. The bonus is that it is a Polycarbonate.

Changes? Personal preference, of course. 2 inches shorter (5'9", 30" inseam) and a larger lower opening to alleviate the negative pressure at speed.

Something tells me that the V-Stream will be good in the rain.

Good Luck!

Duane

Hi Duane,


Thx for getting back to me with all the info I was looking for. At this point, and maybe for the reason that it is 1" taller, I think I'll stick with the CB. It has worked well for me although I wish I had gone with the #2, -4 instead of the -3. In fill down position I don't have any problem seeing over the shield (5' 9", 29" inseam). But when I reise it up to take the pressure of my helmit, I can just we over the top - barely!
Maybe rev 2 will implement you suggestion to reduce the backpressure and I will be ready to upgrade. My CB only has about 5K miles on it and is in perfect condition so another minor reason to hold onto it for a while.

Will you be at the Rally in VT? If so, hope to run into you.

Thx again for taking the time ti share you info.
