Looking for suggestions...
Ok. I need suggestions. Sorry to make another thread. I know there is a wealth of info here and I've read a lot of it. I'll try to keep my questions somewhat pointed.
I'm 5'10". Probably a 31" inseam. Pretty average in stature and normally proportioned, I think.
What I've Got
My bike is a 2007 and I currently have what I believe is a 12" Harley Windsplitter mounted. It's not "aweful" at speed, but it's definitely not great. It seems the buffeting is the worst around 60-65, and cleans up a bit at 85 or so. I do notice turbulent air even at low speeds in the city, between stop signs. It's not horrible while slow, but it is there and annoying.
I also have a 4" black strip. It gives nice and clean air at low speed, but on the highway it makes for quite a bit of a faceblast, and, again, turbulent air which varies from meh to horrible depending on the wind direction, surrounding traffic, etc.
What I'd Like
A screen that looks good (dark, streamlined, not too big), allows enough air to make me feel vented and keep me cool-ish on a warm day, stays still and doesn't flop around too much, feels as close to clean air as possible.
After reading the threads it looks like the 12" Freedom or 12" Windvest might be the ticket. I see some folks around my size have also tried the 10" Windvest with some success. Again, I'm thinking shorter is better for my purposes.
Maybe the ticket is to order several from Freedom and make good use of their return policy.
Thanks in advance.
