OK, who makes the biggest d**n windshield for the verys?

I've tried two or three of them and none are just quite tall enough to get the air flowing cleanly over the top of my head (I'm just over 6').

Looking into winter projects and so far the only items my bike doesn't have are a good set of speedy's anti-vibration risers, some grip heaters and a windshield I am happy with.

I have no issuing ordering the biggest thing I can find and then trimming if I need to. Can always cut a little off but sick of buying a windshield that just isn't quite big enough.

FYI:

I currently have on the Vario screen with x-creen attachment.

Still can't quite get the air flowing up over my head.

If I crouch down in my seat about 2" things are noticeably improved. Just need something that little bit taller.

MadStad have a 20in tall screen. Suits me and I'm 6'4.5"

My Yamaha Majesty scooter 'screen is 23" tall. It goes on for long trips, and when the temps go down over the winter. Here are three pics - the shield w/ the pieces I cut off it, and then set-up. I went to the Majesty site and bought them from the FOR SALE part - about $50 apiece, and they mount onto a Madstad bracket now.

Creative and impressive adaptation! It looks bloody enormous; must do a great job of keeping the wind at bay.

Beware overly tall screens- they often come with handling problems, particularly in strong side and quartering winds. I took mine off, never to return. I accept the wind now: if I wanted weather protection I wouldn't have sold my Concours.

To each his own.

I have to give the credit to "Blipco" for the Majesty 'shields.

The BIG reasons I 'wear' the Majesty 'shield on my "epic" rides is for the rain-days - even w/ rain-gear it gets "OLD" really quick when the rain's pelting your chest (which I've had for whole 12 hour days!!!) - and to help keep SOME of my body-heat from escaping to the wind.

I bought the tall parabellum. It was not tall enough. I drilled holes 1 1/4 inches lower to raise the screen. It pushes the wind just over my head so that I can use an open face helmet for long rides at 60 to 75 mph.

Parabellum states that you should look just over the windshield. I am currently looking about 2" over the top. Would like to be about 1". but this seems to be doing the job.

I am 6" 2" tall.
