    Welcome to the forum!
    Every now and then I wonder about a different windshield for my F800GS. Once I see you have been back to this thread, Iíll move it to F-Twins.......we need more F-Twins

    I have the Madstad on my F700GS & really like it. Lots of adjustment and well made. If you choose Madstad, you need to call them as they are extremely helpful with getting your height etc. so as to get a custom cut for you with no guessing about it.

    I had an exchange with the OP....They were asking about a windshield from Motorcycle Solutions from Germany. It's not something I'm familiar with.
    A quick search doesn't help.

    Thanks

    I have the Madstaad on my f700gs. Generally happy with it, but it does rattle and shake over bumps.

    Post up a picture when you can. It will be interesting to see it on the bike and hear how it works out.

    I may be a complete outlier, but I love the little OEM shield on my F700GS. It offers virtually no weather protection, but man does it excel at air management. At 80, 90, even 100 mph, I feel little wind pressure on my upper body, no ďsailĒ effect at all. At the same time, my head is in completely clean air. Itís loud of course, but no buffeting. For me, in favorable weather, thatís the holy grail of windscreen function.

    I also use the stock shield but found a tinted one which I think looks better on my white moto.
