Great in the rain, just a bit warm in the summers here in the south. Ann likes the unit as well. She does not get buffeting. Im 5' 8" tall and use the medium screen but they make a tall one as well.
budman,I've ordered a v stream for my wet head but have a six week wait.im about your height and suffered bad turbulence and noise from the standard screen.tried c bailies,and it's better but the search is still on.How is the v stream noise wise?

I have found it to be very quiet. Its wider than standard and kind of keeps you in a bubble. Ann and I can talk to each other using the intercom and have no trouble hearing. I had the windshield on both my GTL and RT on the track at Barber Motorsports at a pretty brisk pace and the windshield was great.
Interstate riding at a constant 75 had no buffeting and remained reasonably quiet. Its great in the rain as well. I just raise it all the way up and it offers good protection.
Im assuming that its going to do equally well on my new 2014. I have one ordered.

My CEE Bailey dark tint, 1 inch higher screen is now for sale if anyone wants a bargain before it goes to EBay.
