Having had to make a quick decision while we still had some options to replace our shield at under list price and with free installation, we bought a BMW factory, extra tall shield from the dealer. No real complaint with that. The one that was on the bike had at least four cracks in it, and was well scratched up.
I had not seen this, so had no idea what it was. I also have the Laminar Lip, which looks like it will do what the Aeroflow shield does, but without the layered issue on top. The Aero looks like it might be too short for me. If my legs were proportionate with my upper body, I would be about 6'5" or so.
Only having seen this shield from this one pic, it sure looks like it would be a great idea. Will have to wait till next year, install the LIP, and see how that works on the LT. It did work pretty well on the RT up to about 65 mph.
Laminar allowed me to exchange that when it was explained I had problems on the RT at 75+ mph. Had to have the windshield all the way down at that point or the bike became very unstable. May or may not have all been attributed to the shield and possibly was more an issue with the rear tire.
So far, reserve for the bike was not met. Just a bit too far to want to make the drive to see it. I would have to assume this was not the guys first LT to have been so well outfitted as it is.
