Arrived today----- V Stream N20116 windshield
« on: September 08, 2016, 02:23:02 AM »
The UPS man was good to me today, delivered my new V Stream windshield so I installed it and went for a 40 mile test ride.

The improvement is dramatic. With it all the way down I can easily see over it and the wind just brushes the top of my helmet. There is still some wind noise but greatly reduced from the stock windshield and no helmet buffeting at all.
With it all the way up the wind noise is reduced to a whisper. The wind clears the top of my helmet by about 5" and no wind hit the sides of my helmet either. I can ride with my face shield open with no need for ear plugs. I can still see over it but just barely and with all the hills around here the edge of the windshield is constantly crossing my line of sight which I did not like.
Tried the windshield half way up and this worked very well, wind cleared the top of my helmet so noise was no problem and I could see over the windshield all the time even with the hills. Of all the settings I have tried so far 3/4 of the way up seemed about the best. If I was running down the interstate where the road was flat it would be all the way up. I noticed that more wind hit my arms with the windshield all the way up than with it all the way down. I also had to watch my speedo more, without the wind noise I did not realize how fast I was going, caught myself running over 75mph several times in places where I normally run about 60mph.
So far I am pleased with the results, it make a comfy bike even more pleasant to ride.

You shouldn't be waiting much longer. Customer service told me they are in stock and I received mine 3 days after it was ordered.

WOW! When I had an ST1300 Pan European, I tried a couple of screen and the V Stream was the single best thing I bought for the bike.

Not only was it good for me, but my pillion, who had suffered from buffeting with every other screen I had tried, had virtually no buffeting from the V Stream screen.

I may even get one to replace my Givi Airflow!
