Puig Touring Windscreen BMW R1200GS / Adventure
I was fairly happy with the stock screen. However, when it comes to OUR bike's comfort, there opinions that matter and then there are mine. Something had to be done...
I looked at the winglet things which I read where good at deflecting air but wasn't sure we'd get the same rain protection as from a traditional larger screen.
After reading so many positive reviews about this screen, I jumped. And...
It's great!!! When I have it adjusted to her liking, I'm in a pocket of nearly still air. I'm 5'9" so I'm viewing the road through the screen. My natural line of sight on a level road is about 4" from the top of the screen. You'd have to be a moderately sized giant to see over this screen.
I've read that others had problems with the screen shaking while riding. I only had that issue when it was in its lowest position which didn't appease the queen, anyhow. But for good measure, I've just ordered the Wunderlich screen brace (not sold here, unfortunately).
You won't regret it!

Works Well. Not exactly easy to fit
You would think that you take off the original screen and then simply drop the new one in. Really needs some persuasion and effort to get it to fit. Once on it does the job. Seems stable at high speed without any noticeable buffeting.

Good if you want a taller windscreen
After living with the stock windscreen on my 2013 R1200GSW for 2 years, I decided to try to cut down the amount of wind hitting my helmet and causing noise. I am 6'3" and at the lowest position, this windscreen keeps all but the top-most half inch or so of of helmet out of the wind. This windscreen seems to be of very good quality. The price was reasonable, and RevZilla delivered it quickly. I am very happy with this product. I am also using the Wunderlich brace on this windscreen, as I read that the larger screens may flop around a bit more. Have not tried riding without the brace, so I am not sure to what extent it is needed.

Product arrived quickly, installation was simple after finding youTube video showing how to remove existing windscreen. Performance has been good in terms of getting better wind protection and less noise. At highway speeds, the windscreen does bind and cannot be easily raised or lowered. But once I found the correct height, it works well.

Effective wind blocking and great value.
The extra height and weight adds stress to the already unstable BMW screen adjustment system. Very effective wind blocking compared to the factory screen. Reduced upper body buffeting and eliminated a "whistle" from the front end of my GSA. It provides great coverage without fully committing to the touring look. It is acrylic vs polycarbonate so time will tell how well it holds up against scratches and backwoods pinstripes.

Great screen for the tall ones.
Easy to install, great screen for the price.
I'm 6'4" & this screen is good for me ( I do have to have my seat set to "low" though).
The shape is close to the stock screen so it doesn't look aftermarket.

Great windshield - now I am getting the wind protection I need.
Being tall - 6'5",the stock windshield was not cutting it. The Puig is 4" taller than stock. Installation was simple and done in just a few minutes. The only issue is that the taller shield shook more on the fire roads - which was easily corrected with a stabilizer bracket from Wunderleich.

A good as advertised
Received wind screen in three days, Put it on my 2015 BMW GS in ten minutes. It is about 4 inches taller that the original.
Shape is very similar to original and fits well with bike design. It's as thick as the original and the adjustment mechanism still works through it's entire range. Handlebars do not hit or interferer at either left or right turn extreme. I am 6'3", wind protection is great. Best I have ever had on a GS. Too early to comment on durability but the acrylic material appears to be very tough and cleans well with Plexus.
