Windshield/Fairing

I just purchased a 2014 Bonneville T100, it's a beautiful bike and fun to ride but when I get up close to 70 miles an hour the wind turbulence starts to make me uneasy/uncomfortable (full disclosure, I haven't ridden in almost 40 years) so I'm taking it slow getting used to being on a bike again.
My question is can someone recommend a good unobtrusive windshield/fairing that would help buffet the wind??
I just want to make sure I can keep up or get out of the way of the flow of traffic at highway speeds.

Thanks in advance.

Ted.

Dart make a flyscreen and a larger one, the Marlin. The flyscreen works wonders for me and looks the part too. Lotsa opinions, do some research here and you'll soon be yawning.

I have the Marlin and it did the trick for me. I was experiencing the same things when I crossed the 60 mph range. I'd say the Marlin adds another 10 to 20 mph to your comfortable riding depending if the wind is in front or behind you. It won't do as well as a full screen but still gives you the open feeling riding.

I have the Triumph branded quick release windshield and it does get the buffeting off my chest. It does however aim turbulence right at my helmet. I'm 5'9" in height and the buffeting and noise is tolerable in most road helmets but really sucks if i happen to have a peaked adv helmet on.

I had the Marlin and now have thee International bar mount windscreen. Like it much better as it takes the chest buffeting away and throws air over Helmer. I am 57.

I had Triumph's the bigger quick release wind shield and it made bad feeling when cornering. Unpredictable changes in airflow. Removed it quickly.

I've got Dart flyscreens on my Bonneville and by CB1100. Both keep wind off my chest at all speeds, but keeps my helmet in "clean" air, so I don't experience any buffeting. On a few of my less aerodynamic helmets, I can feel slight neck strain above 80, but I don't spend much time in that speed range.

On my older cruisers with taller windshields, I was always fiddling with them to alleviate helmet buffeting, and decided that moving forward, I'd just stick with lower screens and let my head stay in the wind.
