I'm 6'4", 34" inseam. I have both V-streams, middle and tall. When I have the tall installed, no rain or buffeting occurs when all the way up. All the way down, I get the wind I need. Have ridden in 99 degree heat, no problem for me. The tall is mostly on my FJR. The middle has a slight smoke tint, ever so slight. I'm about to head out on a 3500 mile ride. Last year I had the tall on. This year I'll put the middle on just to change it up. Not as much protection from the rain, but close enough. All the way up, the middle screen is just above my eye line. Like them both, nice to have the choice between the two. As I said, the tall is what I usually ride with.
As for Brian20's comment. That Laminar lip is tremendous at moving the air above you helmet for buffeting, I tried one once. In hindsight, that was the combo I should have went with, the Yamaha touring with the Laminar lip add on.
