MRA Vario Touring Windscreen?

Hi Jeff,

The MRA Vario Touring Windscreen has just been discussed on the German 
GPZ 1100 Forum and all who installed it expressed that they were very 
satisfied with it. I met some of them last year in Maastricht, the 
Netherlands and later in Bavaria and saw the screen myself. I don't 
recall any of the riders being anywhere near 6'3" though. I use the MRA 
Touring Windscreen (without the 'Vario') myself. It does offer much 
better wind protection than the stock screen, but it also increases 
helmet noise significantly due to turbulence. My height is about the 
same as yours (maybe slightly shorter) so my guess is that it would be 
the same for you. I doubt the Vario windscreen will be able to throw the 
wind flow all the way above your head. But I like the better 
wind/weather protection and use ear plugs to compensate for the 
increased noise level.
