    Touring screen

    I'll be doing a 3 week trip in Europe soon and I'd like to get a screen better suited for touring. I'd also like to not pay a ton of money on it unless it's really worth it. I can get the Givi the cheapest for about £85. Is that good enough? Are the more expensive ones better in meaningful ways? I'm just under 6ft (182)

    I tried the GIVI and got a lot of buffeting from it at higher cruising speeds, above 60mph so had to get the wallet out and buy the MRA Vario screen, with it's adjustable spoiler (which you can adjust while riding) I can get smooth air flow from my neck up in the low position or just over my head on high.

    For reference I'm not much shorter than you at 5'10"/178cm.

    the best i found was the MRA vario one, it was a game changer for the bike and i tried the Puig & Givi ones but this worked best.

    Thanks. I also ordered the Wunderlich high seat, so I'm really hoping for a much better touring experience now. I'll find out this weekend hopefully!
