2016 R1200 R third party windcreen?

I'v had the 2014 1200 RT for 2 years. I love this great bike, but now, for several reasons, I find myelf doing less and less long trips, and I feel kind of "over-equipped» with this expensive, big and heavy RT for what has become basically commuting, errands and some short hops of a few hundreds kms. So, I'm looking into trading for a R1200 RS or even R1200 R (I want to stay with the wonderful new boxer engine). As for the R, has anybody found a decent aftermarket windscreen for it? I'm ready to sacrifice some comfort of the RT, but a windscreen remains crucial. I'm 5'7".

Thank you.

I'm also considering moving from my RT to the R. Mainly because in the summer heat the RT blocks too much air flow, and its width makes lane splitting/filtering difficult.

BMW has two accessory screens for the R. Have you looked at those?
