Replacement windscreen for GSA...

Hello,

I want to change the windscreen on my 2018 R1200GSA. Preferably something just a little wider and taller. Has anyone changed their windscreen and if so, what brand and how do you like it...? I am 5'11", I ride 95% on-road and enjoy long(er) rides, so not an off-road junkie and looking for good wind/weather protection, but don't want to have a "barn door" on the front of the bike either.

I look forward to reading your replies.

Rather than going to a larger windscreen I went this way with my stock 14 GSA windscreen -

This little widget makes a huge difference for me, having the screen just a little more vertical really improves the quiet air around my head

I have the AeroFlow windscreen on my bike and it works very well.

I found the stock screen on my GS worked very well until I went to Texas and Kansas. I needed a screen a little wider than stock but not taller. I wanted it short enough for the wind to blow the rain off my facesheld when it's at the low position but over my head at the high position. I went up to Atwood where Aeroflow is located. They have a standard, a tall, and an extra tall. I'm 6ft with a 33 inseam. I tried the tall but it was too tall however the standard seem to fit the bill. The wind no longer hits my shoulders and the wind just goes over my head when it's up. It seems to be a very quality made screen. However the longer I have it the more I noticed a low-frequency buffeting. I just ordered the brackets bigjohnsd suggested and I think/hope that will fix it. The fine tuning never seems to end.

Puig Touring - light tint - looks good, not expensive, but most importantly good protection lower wind noise. No reinforcement needed imo, shakes less than oem. I'm shy of 6ft 1in, 33 inseam.

Plus 1 for the Puig Touring. I have found it very good. I only do touring and am 6' 1" tall. I am sure you wouldn't be disappointed.

Ditto on the VStream.
I went with middle size, not to big, not to small.

Also like their headlight protector.
