Well I got the CalSci medium tour shield and my buffeting problems are over. I don't even have to raise it all the way up. And this shield is shorter than my old one. I guess design has everything to do with it.

For minimum buffeting and noise, try standing up.

Has me thinking of removing my windshield.

Nothing beats a Cee Bailey barn door. But a vstream 20308 is close. The 20308 blocks a tiny bit too much air, even lowered, when itís hot, for me. So the Yamaha Touring screen remains the one screen that does it all, for me.

No commercials. No dictators.

Yes, I also had a Cee Bailey reverse lip +2 on my 2009. I just recently found out the bad news a few months ago when I picked up my 2013 - They are now defunct in the motorcycle aspect of their business... Unobtanium. I think I might have even shed a tear or two!

So I went with a Puig Touring windscreen. I first purchased it in dark smoke, as My Cee Bailey was, but Puig's dark smoke is WAY DARK! So I ordered a light smoke, and it fits the bill perfectly. I actually really like it.

I bought a bullster shield from Spain. It is 23.5 inches tall and lays further back. It has a lip at the top. I am 5'10" and all the way up I can still see over it and I am in a very smooth air pocket. No buffeting.Tried Yamaha touring and the v stream but both weren't high enough to stop buffeting. 2010 for with saddle in the low position.

Like FJRJIMBO, I also wound up with the CalSci medium. I first tried the CalSci barndoor which worked great with no buffeting, but I couldn't get much cooling airflow even at the lowest position. I exchanged it for the CalSci medium and am happy with it.

One major thing to take in is the helmet. I recently got the Neotec II and now the Yamaha touring windshield has absolutely no buffeting. I had been using a Shoei RF1200, and the windshield was only good all the way down or at its highest point with me ducking behind it. Iím not trying to endorse any helmet, only using as my personal example. I am stunned at how I can now use the touring windshield at any point with a smooth ride. Ymmv
