Puig Touring Windscreen BMW R1200GS / Adventure
Great Touring Windscreen
The stock screen on my 15 R12GS was lacking in the touring department, so enter the Puig screen. The styling is very similar to the stock unit, but the wind protection is much better and it reduces / eliminates any back pressure.

A beautiful Barn Door
Quality - The screen is thick, sturdy and beautifully made.
Installation - Very easy if you go by the instructions. It's not obvious otherwise.
Performance - This is where I am a bit mixed. It is a barn door and does a great job of blocking wind. Almost too much. I need to adjust more than the stock screen to get *enough* air flow to my head.
Issues - I strongly recommend third party supports as buffeting is pronounced at speed. I would also worry about stress to mounts and premature failure.
Overall recommended - But perhaps only for winter...and get the braces.

No Regrets .. Best money I've spent!!!
First off, I want to throw out the kudos to the Revzilla team and Fed-Ex. placed my order on Weds, it was sitting on my doorstep when I got home .. you guys Rock!
I'm 6'1 and purchased my 2015 GSA Dec 19th and have put 1,699 miles on it as of parking after my 40 mile test run with this AWESOME windscreen! The only complaint I had about the bike was the buffeting I would get (not that it deterred me from riding) and now it has been reduced to practically nothing! I made a couple of test calls running 80 on the interstate and didn't have any issues hearing them and the same on the other end. I did notice a little bit of a shimmy in it at that speed but will keep an eye on it.
As for installation ... PIECE OF CAKE.. took less than 15 mins!!! Remove the 2 screws (one on each side) just above the hinge, slide the windscreen downward and it's off. Swap over the mounting hardware and reinstall in the reverse manner and ENJOY!
I've included a photo showing the two windscreens side by side.

Perfect for Winter and a Tall guy
First let me say I love all the product videos Revzilla produces. I am a 6'1", 210 lbs male rider who rides year around in the Northern Va / MD area. I have a 2015 BMW GS1200 Adv purchased in June with 14K miles thus far. My commute is 160 mile round trip to work each day (four highways - 66, 495, 95, 32). This product review is short (one day) as today is 1/6/16 and I received my new Puig wind screen yesterday, but I love it so much I had to write this review. To change the wind screen was extremely simple. All you have to do is remove the "Center" screw and pull the wind screen off the bike and then remove the two remaining screws on each side. The first day of riding with the Puig wind screen it was 22 ambeint degrees outside, it was also a very noticeable difference from yesterday with the stock wind screen. First I did not have any wind buffering on my helmet. No Wind noise (I had to turn down my helmet ear speakers from yesterday). It was quiet a bit warmer behind the new screen as the wind was "Pushed" around me much better then the OEM screen. I did not add any additional brackets to it but also have not noticed any wind screen shaking (max speed today was 90 MPH - I pushed my speed a bit to see if I got any shake). There was a bit in "dirty air", driving behind a truck or other tall vehicles but in "clean air" (no one in front of me) the wind shield was very solid. As stated it is the middle of winter right now, so maybe in the summer time I might have to put the OEM back on for the temps, but right now I am loving the silence with the new wind screen.

Great alternative to the stock windshield.
I am 6'5" tall with a 36 inch inseam. I usually have a difficult time finding a windshield that affords adequate protection. I have been riding with this windshield in the full down position, even this low I get very little wind on my body or helmet and there is no buffeting. Definitely the best one I have owned so far.
Several riders in their review wrote that they added a Wunderlich stabilizer to this windshield because it moved around a lot. I have not found this to be the case. Even at highway speeds the windshield is stable, but to each his own.
If your a tall guy, or gal, 6' + I do not think you can go wrong with this windshield

Excellent Upgrade for 2015 BMW R1200 GS Adventure WC
I am 6'3" and the stock windshield on my 2015 R1200 GS Adventure was a bit too short even raised in the top position. The top of my helmet was catching some major buffeting. Also, I was getting quite a bit of wind on my arms and shoulders. After reviewing a number of the adventure rider forums, the Puig Touring Windscreen seemed to be the windshield of choice. Ordered it on-line from Revzilla at a competitive price and it showed up a couple of days later. Revzilla came through like usual. Installation was reasonably simple but took a bit of tweaking to get everything to line up. The Puig Windshield is approximately 3 inches taller and 1 inch wider on each side. It is shaped very much like the stock windshield and looks great on the bike. Since the windshield is slightly larger, I would recommend buying a screen stabilizer from Wunderlich or Cymarc to keep the windshield from moving around at speed or over rough ground. I installed Cymarc and the Puig is now rock solid on my bike. The performance of the Puig Windshield is phenomenal. It is very quiet behind the Puig in the uppoer position and good airflow for cooling when lowered. Helmet buffeting is gone and much better airflow around my arms and shoulders. Very happy with this purchase from Revzilla.

Nice winter/bad weather windscreen
Works well at directing more wind and other bad weather elements over and around the riders. Looks almost just like the stock BMW R1200 GS Adventure LC windscreen just bigger (mostly taller by about 4 inches). Not sure about the long term durability but so far it is doing fine.
I also installed a pair of the Cymarc Adjustable Screen Strengthening Brackets to help keep the screen from bouncing up and down and would recommend using them with this large screen but this does make the install more difficult.
I would buy this windscreen again...

Excellent windscreen for the money
Installed on a 2015 R1200GSW. Fit and finish were good. No installation problems. I did buy the Wunderlich reinforcement bar to reduce flex at speed. I'm a big guy @ 6'5" and it's perfect.
