Hey guys, my new-to-me 2006 LT has what I "think" is the original windshield. It has the BMW logo on it and also has what appears to be the National cycle(NC) logo on it. Not a huge fan of this windshield. First, when I have it raised up and I look through it, the optical distortion is quite evident. Also, coming off a GL1500, the air is noisier and offers less protection.

I've heard that Cee Baileys is the way to go. Looking online at their #2 Reverse Contour , will this have the same optical distortion?

Hi Craig!
I've used both the original shaped windscreen (mfr by Cee Baily's), And the Cee Baily's #2 contoured screen, and I Much prefer the #2 shape. (so does the Pax). Very little' to no distortion, Nice wind protection.
The original screen sure looks cool on the bike......but I think that maybe "form over function" won out on that one.
I'm 5'8" & I like the CB #2 minus 2. If your a little taller, You might want to add an inch.
That's My recommendation..........other opinions abound.

+1 on the #2 also. I went 2" taller than stock, which works well for me. I can see through it with little or no distortion, but can drop it down when needed.

and if your inclined, I went with the light gray tint, worked out very well, just enough to that the glare out, very good at night.

Thanks for all the replies guys. I'm going out today on my first significant ride and will determine if the stock size if good or if I want to up-size.

Take note that the reverse curve of the CB #2 inherently makes the screen higher.
If a stock 24" seems low to you..........the 24" CB #2 will not be.
