The OEM windscreen is really not much more than a hood for the instruments. I replaced it soon after I bought the bike in November. For winter riding (mid-30s to mid-50s temps), I currently have a V-Stream Touring windscreen. RevZilla sells it. I like it a lot. At first it looked too big for the bike, but not now. It very functional. It's wider and a lot taller than OEM. In the middle setting, it does a good job of moving the airflow upward and outward for better protection against the cold (along with heated gear, of course). It's only available in clear.

In the spring, I'll get V-Stream's Sport Touring windscreen. It's smaller than the Touring model, but a better shape than the OEM windscreen. It also comes in a dark tinted version.

I've got the V-Stream sport touring version in the dark smoke effect, it's been really good and I leave it on the lowest setting and that's fine for my 6'2" (and broad) frame! The only negative point I've found so far is that on full lock when moving it around the screen taps the front brake leaver a touch, not sufficient to apply the brakes aggressively but it is noticeable; I'm happy to live with it due to the looks and performance!

Anyone know if the Puig Carbon Fiber version is see through or is it solid? I like the looks but not sure about not being able to see through it.
I'm not sure it matters a great deal.
I have the National Cycles V-Stream in the darkest tint they had, and since I'm still lookimg way over the top of it there's not a visability problem. It's about 4" taller than the stock shield.

Went with Puig. I like it and it offers better wind coverage. Dark Smoke is fine. Can still see through.
