comparison of windshields

I need a new windshield. I know that many years ago I saw a comparison of the Cee Bailey and the Parabellum windshields.
Which one do you guys recommend and why?
Thanks
Brad

Re: comparison of windshields

This is my fav.

I think I got -2 ; I'm 5'9 with a 29 inch inseam

I'm thinking of getting another 3 inches, to +1 for my wife on long trips

I tried several others..this one worked best for me.

Re: comparison of windshields

2 up the ceebaily #2 and maybe with the wings is the ticket. My wife likes the sheild. I had a standard and then a -3 and she liked the standard better but then I can't see over it.

I could play with women or with cars, I find cars are cheaper and you can write a book about cars a guy would understand.

Re: comparison of windshields

I've had a Parabellum for 5 years. Quieter, smoother, better gas mileage, and clearer vision. Designed by a aerodynamic engineer. I'll buy another if I ever need to, but I can't see that as it's still as clear as the day I bought it

Just my $.02

Due to heart health, the Dr says not to ride under 40 degree air temp. Ugh! Now it is harder to get my 18000 miles a year in just in the summer. Guess that stopped my 20 degree rides now.
