Thread: C Bailey's no longer making motorcycle windscreens, some suggestions?

    C Bailey's no longer making motorcycle windscreens, some suggestions?

    I've got a C Bailey's on the 2011 RT presently. Just looked at maybe replacing it as I really like the looks and protection but they are no longer making them for motors.

    Suggestions from RT owners on what they've found to be a well sorted screen for the beast?

    Thanks

    Can't go wrong with an Aeroflow.

    Running one of theirs on my RS, which screen did you purchase. I looked at them this morning and couldn't tell which one might be better for the RT [ two available sizes ].

    Thanks

    7Jurock (who makes the Quiet Ride for Werks, using the Werks design) has a Camhead shield that uses a similar "flip" at the top to move the airstream over your helmet. I think it will fit my Hexhead, but 7Jurock won't confirm that it will fit and I'm not willing to to risk 2-way shipping and 15% restocking fees if it does not.

    I had a Cee Bailey on my RT and loved it. The upper part of the windshield curved upward sending the wind over my helmet while having the windscreen low enough to see over instead of through. I recently bought a windscreen for an FJR and found that Aeroflow now offers a similar style windscreen. If this is a feature you like about Cee Bailey, you may want to check Aeroflow.

    Looks like I'll eventually pick up another Z-teknic for the RT. I really like the looks of this Bailey on it now.

    I had a Werks on the RT and it was great and on my GSA I have a V-Stream and it works quite well too. Both bikes are the LC models.....
    Can't go wrong with either shield IMHO.. YMMV

    Aeroflow Tall. Best money I’ve spent adding onto my RT.

    I have this as well. Only two issues are (1) it works too well in the summer and (2) if you have the BMW Navigator setup it will hit the GPS unit when you lower it all the way. Despite that it mostly stays on the RT since I have an R for the hotter months.

    Parabellum windshields

    I have had several Parabellum windshields over the years and were very happy with them.

    I've used National Cycle's Vstream on a few bikes and love them.

    Fun fact, BMW's new R18 Bagger and TransContinental are using windscreens manufactured by national cycle. Quite a stamp of approval from BMW to use their parts.

    The standard touring shield for the R1100R and R1150R bikes were also from National Cycle. And they were great windshields that worked well - at least for my 5'10" height.
