1) I know alot has been posted in regards to after market windshields but I'm looking to ride late into the year and live in WI so what blocks the wind the best?

2) What's the price range to expect?

MRA Vario Touring Screen @ about $140.00 TYD. Twisted-throttle.com is the sole importer. Would offer the best wind deflection in my opinion.

Only change to above was to replace leather jacket with this one.

Keep in mind I ride down into the "teens". Never done single digit yet. It usually snows before then. Then it's all over.

I think the coldest I have rode was around 68 degrees. Had to haul a** home, was kinda cold in a long sleeve t-shirt for a south florida boy............

When it gets that cold a windshield aint gonna help you. My personal best last year was 26 degrees thanks to grip heaters and decent gear. BTW I have the ZG touring shield and it is as decent a place as any to hide.

I would go with what GPW says, he changes windscreens more often than most of us change underwear!

I also am trying to extend my riding season, just purchased one of these

and it makes a huge difference as most of the cold problems are the neck and head area. It's fairly easy to insulate the rest of your body. The company is in the U.K. which I'm sure any Brits on the board will testify means they have LOTS of experience riding in the cold!

Another option is

which comes in a summer and insulated winter model.

LMFAO at all the guys who know the cold weather gear routine. Gotta love FL for this stretch of the year. Avg temp: high 75, low 58 from Oct.-April. Very little rain and lots of sunshine.

This is what I tried. Keeep in mind im 5' 10" with 29 inseam. I ride sitting upright

Stock - cant see dashboard completely, no wind protection

Puig Sport Touring - cant see dashboard completely, no wind protection, looks beautiful

Zero Gravity Sport Touring - can see whole dashboard, most wind protection, 1st choice, bike looks more on touring side, speed limit around here is 55 max so buffering not a problem at that speed

Puig Doubble Bubble - my 2nd choice, good wind protection (less around shoulder), can see whole dashboard, looks sportier than ZG ST, buffering never a problem any speed, I put in on in the summer when really hot.

Laminar Lip is also an option for the cold weather protection (4) screws and its off. I am also a dealer for that option or the Vario Touring Screen hit me up if you need either. I can also do the MRA Double Bubble or Touring. MRA makes most of the OEM screens for factory application. High quality stuff that does not scratch easy like many of the aftermarket screens do. Let me know.

+1 GPW, MRA works really good. I've had one for two yrs. Used it going to Alaska. I ride in Maine and did 500 mi. in Jan. this yr. I have a DB and ZG touring. The touring isn't bad but I like the MRA better. Very well made and I like the adj. lip. My friend liked it so much he got one also.
