Value priced windshield?

OK,

I have a 2009 and I'm looking for a windshield to provide more wind protection. With it getting cold (I hate the cold) I need to stay warm! I don't want to spend $175 unless I have to.

What has been a good shield to go with? How big do I need to go? I imagine I'll reinstall the stock shield during the summer unless someone has a better idea.

Thanks in advance for your help.

25 deg. this morning and we're just getting started. You're in Florida complaining of the cold? OK, I get it.

YEP! This Sat I was hoping to ride but the forecast is 45 as the low with a high from 65-68! THAT IS COLD TO ME! ha ha...

There is a reason why I live in FL and this cold weather is not one of them. Yes, I'm spoiled and that is fine with me!

Just get some warmer gear, or a tried and true method is put a garbage bag on before suiting up it will keep you toasty warm.

I have Olympia Mesh gear, that has a great waterproof liner that is very warm, and I ride in temps down too 35 degrees. then when it warms up remove the liners and you are good to go for the rest of the day.
