Re: Best R1200R Windscreen

I think the most attractive and well built windscreen is the ZTechnik VStream windshield. I bought it through my BMW dealer and then put it on myself. Very easy to do.
However, I'm 5'11' and I get some wind on the top of my helmet as you will with any windshield because if you get a windshield that's too tall you'll lose the aesthetics of the bike. A very tall windshield looks funny on a 1200r.

Have you considered adding a Laminar Lip?

If yo have not, Google "Laminar Lip". It may work for you. Some interesting reviews on the Web.

There doesn't appear to be a laminar lip for the 08 1200 R
