Replacing tall windshield

I have an '09 LT that came with the tall windshield. I have kept it at its lowest position because I'm not a fan of looking through a windshield. My problem is the wind buffeting is really bad around my head. Does anyone know of another brand/shape out there where I can still look above the windshield and not get all of the turbulence that I am getting now? By the way I am 5'10" and 32" inseam if this helps.

Thanks,
Ken

Re: Replacing tall windshield

This seems to be a very personal decission. I've read that the best way to find out is to be at a rally where there are wind screen vendors that will let you demo them. There's a lot of opinions in the "Ergonomics & Rider Comfort" forum. A search will help out a lot, but you'll see that everyone has their own view (pun intended).
I decided on a VStream from A&S after seeing one on an LT in a showroom.

HTH,
Jer

Hi Jer,

Thanks a lot. V Stream seems to have a lot of popularity. I am going to give it a shot as the only way I am going to know is by trying it.
