Windscreen for R1200R

Could, Pls., anyone who might have installed the windscreen VStream Z2408 on motorcycle R1200R explain the result. Mainly I mean, how was the wind-noise protection??, It was possible to se over the screen??, (I saw in the web page from Vtechnic 47cm from head light), and finally, how it was regarding the vibration at, let say, 70-80mph??.
Also if have experience comparing with large BMW screen would be appreciated.
Thanks a lot and good-safety ride overthere.

Re: Windscreen for R1200R

I have the same model on an 08 1200 r and it's going to be as good as it gets. I'm 5'11" and I easily see over the top but keep in mind it's a sport windshield and the wind will clear the top of the windshield and hit the top of your helmet. At 70, 80 or 90 you get some buffetting in this area but it doesn't push your head back and doesn't distract you.
