I was just getting ready to post something very similar to your observations - my Bailey windshield showed up today as well and I was able to road test it tonight. I went with a +3 tall, +2 wide and it's perfect for me at 6', though I imagine a bit more on the sides would be great too.
First thing I noticed was that there was ZERO wind noise at speed with it all the way up which had me cruising along at 15mph more than usual! More speed in the corners, more relaxed cruising - it was actually difficult to gauge speed for the first 10 minutes or so with it all the way up, it really is that quiet. Of course, it only serves to amplify the clunking shifts.
But I prefer mechanical feedback and music to wind noise any day of the week.
Nice piece - very happy with it and the turn around from them was less than a week!
