Touring windscreen T120

As per earlier an earlier thread, I have tried the Dart fly screen and Marlin and as they are useless for me, has anybody any recommendation as to an efficient touring screen ? I do not particularly fancy the Triumph touring screen and would prefer a screen with an adjustable top vent. I have been looking at the Givi screen on the internet but there must be others. I appreciate that the height of a rider is irrelevant as it is the height from bum to head that counts. The problem is that one has to ' buy to try ' and it can get somewhat expensive.

I like my Parabellum, I have the 22 inch. It works great, no buffering at all on my helmet and I can see over the top with no trouble. It looks big on there but boy does it work.

I second the Parabellum. I had them custom make me a 23" screen. I'm 6'. I see over it and it works great. However, it is a big screen for the bike. I only plan to use it when I have some long highway riding.

The Madstad is far and away the most functional. It is adjustable so you can tune out any buffeting. I've had one on my last three Triumphs and could cruise comfortable at high speed for hours, with my helmet face shield up and listening to music. You get to your destination far more relaxed. Only issue is some people (not me) find it ugly though that would likely apply to any serving what you're after.

I have National Cycle's Plexifairing GT. I like the screen, it's stable and flairs out to cover the hands which I appreciate . . . I did 100 highway miles in low 50 degree temperatures and light mist / rain without complaint last weekend . . . but the installation is a hassle and to get it positioned perfectly I had to replace the mirrors and front signals (though I ran it for a few hundred miles with the stock mirrors / signals without issue). For reference I am 6'1" and the top half of my head, but it is relatively clean air and I can duck behind the shield if I feel the need.

I also have the Dart Fly and its useless on the highway on a standard position bike. I'm 5'8" and am considering two MRA options:

The Roadshield that is 12.5" high and 15" wide in smoke:

The Vario Screen that is 19" high and 17" wide in clear - its a split screen design to reduce pressure from behind and is also adjustable in height:

Decisions, decisions. A bit pricey as you have to buy mounting hardware separate but this brand so far looks to have higher end quality than others I've researched.

On my two Tigers I had clear. On my Bonnie I have the light grey. I tried the dark gray but didn't like it. Stood out too much for one thing,

I started with the Triumph Touring Windshield and upgraded to a larger Clearview screen. I don't think the Triumph windshield is worth the money they're asking for it but I bought mine used from a forum member. The Clearview screen uses the Triumph brackets and grommets so it really doesn't make economic sense unless you can find the Triumph shield at a good price. I like both screens for riding in cold weather. They both cut the wind blast on my chest. The Clearview screen offers more wind protection up and to the sides. The downside is that both screens are loud at anything over 40 mph. I wear earplugs on longer rides so I can accept that trade off. The bummer for me is the upper brackets stick out like antennae when you remove either screen for warm weather riding.

Clearview windshield, Triumph Cruise Control Kit DRL Type 2, Pazzo levers, JW Speaker Evo 2 LED headlamp, Booster Plug, Triumph LED indicators, 4 bar tank badges, chrome throttle body, clutch and inspection covers.
