after 3000 klm with palmer screen, I'm very happy, the only thing that is less good is that in bad ground the screen shakes, as well as the fairing, not 100% good. Does madstrad suffers the same problem?

Madstad does not suffer same problem. The Madstad is a great screen. I can ride with visor up with no problem. Rode in the rain the other day and stayed mostly dry.

hi, the screen is very good and in good road, and highway can go to 200klmh without problem does not vibrate anything, but in offroad, or bad road, shaking a lot, as well as the fairing is because the plastic in the fairing is soft, at least on my bike.

Buy the Madstad, set it and forget it. A great wind screen. I get no buffetting.

He has two size screens, one is taller than the other. I'm 5'8" and got the shorter screen. He recommends the tall screen only for tall people. I also got the light smoked color (think he calls the lighter shade bronze), and although it looks great, I might have preferred the clear screen, as I wear sunglasses and also have a smoked hekmet face shield. Seems like a lot of "shaded" stuff to look through and the clear may give better road definition while looking through the screen. They are very helpful there and you can call and discuss what you're looking for, and they will guide you in the right direction.

Good luck.

I'm 6 foot 2 and fitted a 5 inch taller screen - brand eludes me at this point. Buffeting went from reasonable to crazy, headache inducing.
Went back to stock screen and will live with it for time being...
