Thanks for the feedback
1. See OP, My wife, sitting as pillion, says it's great, better than we ever got on either of my Goldwings, better than her R1200RT (rider position). She wore no jacket, just a short sleeve t-shirt so she really feel any wind. She said she got a tiny bit on her shoulders, no noise or wind buffeting at helmet level, and we could visit (with opened visors) at an easy 70 + MPH (not saying how much plus!) The GTL wind wings were closed, and I was looking well over the shield. It was about even with my nose.
2. Check the link above. They cost 140-225 US, plus shipping (plus tax for California, i'd guess). I paid 225.00, but only because it was the extra tall. The other GTL shields are all 210.00 each, with the GT shields dropping down from there. It shipped the same day I ordered, UPS ground predicted six day delivery to South Florida (not counting the pickup day) on their tracking, but it took seven. The shipping box looked like a driver had sat on it for some of the trip, a bit alarming at first sight, but everything inside was in perfect condition.
3. I'll try to find out this weekend, we're supposed to get a lot of rain again. I'll be working all weekend, but I'll try to get some rain riding in. We did ride in some light mist last night, but that doesn't count. I want to know about performance in hard rain at speed. I also need to check out how the wind wings work during HOT weather ride. I'll check that out first chance I get too.
Honestly, I might call it a keeper, even if it floods me LOL. The difference in quiet comfort compared to the OEM is unbelievable. However if I do get really wet, I "may" try the Cee Bailey, I've had fairly good results with them in the past on various bikes, but never ever have I had anything that was such a huge improvement as this CalSci. BMW should be ashamed of their windscreen effort.
