Finally feed up with the wind noise!

I have a 2004 K12GT and I love the way it looks with the current wind screen. However I am 6'02" and with the OME tall screen my head is still in the air stream even with the wind screen fully extended. The problem I am having is that my hearing is suffering and at higher speeds my helmet is being lifted up or pulled up into the faster moving air. Those are two major problems.

I have looked at all of the common makers of wind screens for my bike and the one I haveteh most interest in is the Parabellum. does anyone have any information on this windscreen? They seem to have an extensive history with BMW motorcycles.

Wind

I have a Parabellum Tall on the same bike and it works great. I have found that if I extend it is puts extra Stress on the arms as it has a larger service area.

All in all, I am very happy with performance.

At 6' I have a little wind noise with the screen down. i only raise the screen to ride in rain....

Good luck
