I have the one that came with the Madstad, both of which came with my bike (purchased slightly used). I like the height and the Madstad lets you play with that quite a bit. I like that it uses the wider VStrom hole spacing because it meant I could easily attach a RAM ball on the stiffening plate for a really slick GPS mount.
I'm 5'7" and I still look over the top with the shield all the way up and pitched as close to vertical. If you want to look through the shield, get something taller.
What I wish is that the shape of the windshield bottom edge was parallel to the Versys headlight instead of an opposite curve. Not a huge deal, but if I were to replace the shield (assuming I don't like how it performs after more experience), I would look at a Mike's shield or a CalSci, which I think better complement the front end design of the V. The Mike's is available without holes so you can drill your own with the wider VStrom spacing.
