Used the shield on my 35 mile trip to work. Definitely some buffeting and wind noise but nothing that drives me crazy. Holy heck it felt so good not having freezing cold hands today. First ride in weeks that they werent frozen afterwards. Protects your hands really well. Overall body protection is good. It is a little more drafty down by my groin and upper legs. Overall the plexistar is a solid purchase for me.

Had the bike up to 95 mph and i think it actually works better at higher speeds. No wobble and it didnt seem to catch wind.
If you add the MRA X-Screen Touring to the PS2 you will eliminate the buffeting and most of the wind noise.

RE: Windshield Hell
I have found GIVI Airflows to work very well.
I’ve used one my 2014 V strom 1000 for 3 years
Just added one this weekend to my recently purchased 2014 std
At 5 11 with the screen 1/2 way up it creates a still air pocket and guides the wind over my helmet with no turbulence

RE: Windshield Hell
Have any of you tried the slipstream windscreen? I just bought 1 was just wanting to know what to expect.

Haven't figured out posting pics yet maybe I'll figure it out soon

RE: Windshield Hell
After trying several shields, I ended up with the same configuration as Dude, a plexi2 with the MRA deflector. I really like the plexi2, great wind protection for the hands and body.

RE: Windshield Hell
I'm glad it worked out for you Jdinaz. I had enough issues with trying to find a screen that I gave up. I think I'm just going to invest in some hand guards and go that route.

I haven't ridden with it at night yet, the weather has been pretty mild, so maybe next week and I'll get back to you.
