What would you have the givi seems very tall for a 5' 11 and I want it to look good as well as being effective and reduce noise

Givi works fine. It is not very tall for your height. A lot of noise depends on your helmet as well. But if you want a big wind blocker, maybe look into CalSci windshields instead. I have a Givi on 2010 and I have less noise than stock and the best part is my head movements aren't jerky/snappy at all when doing shoulder checks on highway speeds. With stock screen on highway speeds, I had to brace myself for shoulder checks. Not anymore!

Problem is, we sit so upright that any windshield big enough to do the job will not be pleasing to the eye. I'm sure either one of those windshields you've selected will disappoint as much as the other.

Was using Mario MRA by Kawasaki and lately added GIVI screen. Still a long way before I get the best setting with both the screen and wind diffuser.

Too tall a screen is going to disturb the vision at some point.

Take the best short and live with it.

I ordered the Calsci screen because you can order a height that will fit you perfectly.

Or go back thru the posts and look at the Yamaha Majesty scooter "modded" 'shields. That's what I run when it gets cold in Jan/ Feb.

Parabellum has been working great for me for the last two years.

I tried most everything. CalSci worked best for me.
