I took several weeks but finally IT IS in my garage! Due to bad weather (snow, rain, low temp) only few miles made. I think I am gonna like it
I am rather tall (6,3ft) so I think I'll need a taller screen. Could You recommend me one?
I can tell you that the Triumph aftermarket screen is no good. It has that little lip on the top that is supposed to flip the air over you, but in my opinion all it does is make a lot more wind noise. I prefer the standard one, but I have heard good things about the zero gravity.
I can't really say which would be better. Myself being 5'7" short I'm pretty happy with the stock shield. Alabamastan is a mandatory helmet state and I do not have any turbulence problems. I rode down to Tampa Florida over labor day weekend and was able to ride at speeds up to about 90mph with a ball cap with the bill pointed correctly(before the safety police strike, Yeah I know dangerous it is, I was around before the nanny state took over)
I would agree with the suggestion to give the stock one a fair go. I am knocking on 6ft 2in - and like the stock screen. Wind gets me right at neck level and I do not think that buffeting is an issue. If the airblast was any higher, I feel that buffeting would start.
There are probably as many answers to your question as there are people to give them. That said, here's mine - I agree with Push0d and Black Beauty, give the stocker a go for awhile. My bike came with the Triumph touring screen already installed. I'm 6ft 2in and I found that when I would reach 70 - 80 mph (112 - 128 Kph, for you metric types), I would start to get a pretty good buffet right at helmet level. The stock screen was included as part of the deal when I bought the bike - I switched them out and found that I preferred the stocker. Yeah, there is wind in your face but it's clean.
