    Windshields, Aeroflow Touring Aeroscreen versus Cee Cee Bailey Enhanced (& Madstad)

    My wife is specifically interested in one of these two screens for her F650GS and I would be interested to hear from anyone with experience with one, or both of these;


    1.) F800GS & F650GS Touring AeroScreen '09-'12

    2.) 2008 - 2012 F 650 GS & F 800 GS Twin Enhanced Windshield

    3.) Madstad (late addition to the list)

    I've not tried either, but many folks think the triangular "vent" hole is a worthwhile feature.

    Looked at a lot of windscreen threads and the Madstadt is the one that consistantly comes up as best. We have a 20" CBailey on our F650GS twin, and it it nice but still plenty of wind noise at higher speeds. Not a lot of wind at lower speeds but that makes it hot in behind it sometimes when just riding around town.

    Thanks, can you please tell me the height of the windshield and your height?

    This info would be very helpful.

    Also, are the adjustments easy to make and does it seem like it will stay put and hold the adjustment setting w/o moving?

    I recently installed a Madstad 20' screen on my f700gs. I am 5"10" and it works well. i prefer it to Cee Baileys. The adjustment is easy.

    UPDATE

    After a lot of deliberation, she ordered the Cee Cee Bailey 18" Enhanced. The Madstad was a close second.

    Since the bike already has the BMW Tour Windshield with the accessory bracket, the bracket fits the Cee Cee Bailey 18" Enhanced.

    It should arrive in approx. 2 weeks, report to follow when it does.

    Wow, a 20-foot windshield for a 5-inch rider... any problem reaching the pegs and bars?

    So what is the verdict? I have the standard 20" on my F800 right now but that enhanced 18 looks interesting. Seems nice but actually find that i don't get air flow to the helmet and therefore ventalation on hot days. In the rain it was very nice.

    PS we will be crossing back into Canada at Fort Erie sometime this AM.

    She is still trying to sort that out. The days we have had to test it out were windy.

    She take her time to figure things out, and she is coming off a Victory Vision Tour so there is an acclimatization period.

    I found that out when I took it out, I am 6' - 3" and I missed the airflow; however, I am used to a BMW Tour windshield on my 2013 F700GS. I wear a BMW System 6 Helmet and find the helmet/windshield combo works for me on my F700GS.

    It is sunny here this morning but there is a chance of rain, I took yesterday as a vacation day and we were riding for part of the day, I may just hang around and do some detailing.

    2014 F800GT - new screen

    Just put a new V_Tech screen on my bike at the rally. Biggest one I could buy. I'm 5 ft 8 inches tall. What a difference. I'm so impressed. No wind buffeting and less bugs on my helmet....

    I've had the Aeroflow touring on my F650GS for over 4 years now. I'm completely satisfied. I got the medium height and tweaked it a bit lower so I could easily see over it while the air flow was over my helmet(no buffeting). The vent hole keeps the back pressure down...best a interstate speeds and keeps back draft rain to a minimum. It is tough and durable. over 40K miles including trips to Alaska and Labrador.
    I highly recommend it.

    I have a 16" Vstream with a clamp-on MRA "variotouring screen" on my 2011 F650GS twin. The Vstream alone had buffeting at the forehead level (i am 5' 7"). With the MRA I can adjust that buffet out of the picture.

    The adjust-ability of the MRA is a big plus for me. Something to consider since windshields are tough to fit.
