10-14 Windshield question

Whats going to be the best windshield for me being a taller rider?
I'm 6'5". I would obviously like something taller than the stock. Whats going to be my best option without a lot of buffeting from the wind and what not? Wouldn't mind it being smoked towards the bottom but in all honesty it doesn't matter.

I'm wanting to break the wind for the upcoming winter season (summer too).

Well I would suggest shopping around. Puig, MRA, Givi are just a few to look at. They offer tall and regular sizes. I am 6'3" and have a MRA touring with a vario spoiler on top. It works OK, still some wind noise but no buffeting. I'm thinking about trying this from Puig and putting the spoiler on it?
