Exclamation Cee Baileys or Vstream ??

There are many threads about the subject but they are all so complicated.
Lets keep this simple, please.

Im 62" tall (626" to be precise, or 191 centimetres). I have 2002 LT with 24" BMW windshield. Its time to chance.

I like to ride it all the way up when riding in the highway here in Finland, mostly limit is 62 and in intersections 49.
In the rain i lower it so that i can see over the top (its aproximately half way down). Like this i can see road something like 60 feet in front of me.

Give me some clue what kind of shield should i get.
Im thinking ceebaileys #2 with wings (regular or +2) but after reading threads about Vstream..... Is it good.

I love my Cee Bailey. I have a friend that is about as tall as you and he purchased the VStream. He went back to stock... I am using a #2 -4 Cee Bailey which is just right for me since I am 5"9'. That is from what I understand 6" shorter then stock. So if you went with a +2, you would be at stock height.. Wish I had the wings. I purchased it second hand.

Someone else please confirm if I am correct or not... Good Luck.

As far as which height screen to get, I suggest reading the info on this site http://www.ceebaileys.com/cycle/height-width.htm. But if you want advice on which type, I suggest talking to to these people http://www.blue-job.co.uk/main.php?g...lt1wingsscreen, who are very knowleagable when it come to which type of screen to choose.

I have tried several..

Presently have and like the CB #1 Touring shield with side wings. The wings make a huge difference.

I tried the #2 that many people like but it's just too short and stands up too straight for me. It had so much resistance that my windshield motor stalled.

I don't like to have to ride with a screen up high- cost too much in gas and turbulence. A longer screen run lower works for me. 6'4", 30" inseam.
