    800gs - best touring windscreen for a tall rider?

    My son is 6'5" and the happy owner of a new to him F800gs. Does the group have any suggestions for A taller windscreen?

    He does 99% on road and highway riding.

    I have the tall Cee Baileys windshield on my 2013 F800GS. I like it a lot. Good sturdy brackets, good wind protection, and doesn't interfere with steering. I've had it for over three years. I do about 70%-30% to 60%-40% road and off-road. Last year was more 60/40. When riding off-road it doesn't interfere when standing up. Great product.

    I am 6"3" and when sitting erect on the stock seat I ride peering over the windshield by about 2". The wind is deflected nicely. I would replace the windshield with the same product if damaged or I got a new GS.

    Madstat is probably the most adjustable.
