Madstad gen2 questions

I'm 6'1" tall and have a seat concepts seat which gives me another inch. I have tried a few screens but think I need to "go big or go home". I'm tired of wind noise. Any gen2 madstad owners with the biggest shield care to chime in and give some feedback. All the threads are old and I know windscreens are very personal. It's either the madstad or calsci. Thanks guys.

I have a '12 with a 22" Madstad. At 5' 10" this is about right, never fully extended since I want to look over the bug catcher.
as you said it is very personal, I love/hate it. Love because it does what I really want, keeping the direct blast of air away from me.
Hate because there is no quiet space behind it. There is enough air flowing under it between the cowling and the mounting brackets to reduce that back pressure felt with some screens but it also becomes a bit noisy. Ear plugs are a wise addition. Bottom line....you never know until you plunk down the green. Good luck with your choice.

That's my fear. There is so much space between the screen and and myself that the air will just wrap around behind the screen anyways. I have a decent setup now. Zero gravity touring with the MRA visor attached. Thanks for the input.
