    I'm 177 and I think you may struggle to be honest. I've pretty much decided that the only way to get protection without buffeting and turbulence is to go with one of the screens with a lip of some sort. The MRA Touring Vario, the MXC and the Wunderlich 3d lip all worked better than the OEM screen or the Wunderlich touring screen.

    I finally succumbed to the quest for keeping bugs off my faceshield and made up this windshield extender from an old faceshield, two old screws (BMW Torx, but I can't remember what from) and a couple of long grommets I found in my odds 'n sods box. Cost nothing, doesn't do anything for the noise but does make things a bit smoother. As for the bugs, I have to wait for another warm day...

    I've gone short- Powerbronze Adventure Sports dark tint.
    http://www.powerbronze.co.uk/334298...EEN---BMW-,R1200RS,-15-17-(385-MM)---RED.item

    It moves air flow the same way as the OEM on high mount but is several inches shorter.
    For those in hot climates it would work well on the low position as the wind hits me at nipple height.
    On high setting its just below the chin. Remarkable given the size.
    It's smooth air too. I'm 5'11" and 32" inseam BTW.
    Looks sharp too - sports bike style.

    I've opted for that screen in summer months. Mine is "black" and definitely has a sportier look to it. The airflow is massive but non turbulent and that's exactly what I want in the 90-100 degree summer heat.

    I have an unusually short torso, so while the PB Sport is by far the best looking screen that flows the most air, I get buffeting to the helmet from it.

    Wish for a shorter yet option...

    Would a booster seat help?

    I tried the PUIG Racing, lower position, higher position and stock windshield higher position. I'm 185cm (~6') and the difference is very very marginal so you know!
