third one
By Brian Gumaer(Owner), Jul. 4, 2010
At 6ft and 200 lbs,I too found the stock windsceen to cause a little buffeting. Solution, about $150 will solve the problem. Cee Bailey make a quality replacement screen with a vent in ti. No flip at the top, and it's a bit shorter too. No more buffeting. For more (much more) top end, I also added a... Read Full Review

By Paul Nadas(Owner), Jul. 29, 2015
