Pix of Cee Bailey +5 +3 compared to Standard

Attached are some pix of my new Cee Bailey +5 +3 next to my old standard 22.5 inch windscreen. Doing this for anyone wants to see how it looks compared to the standard.

The last shot is just the new one in an up and down position.

Not road tested yet.

man...... that thing is BIG
i hope you like the it "WORKS" for you, because it sure doesn't look like it belongs on that bike because of its size, IMHO
quite "out of place," actually

but.....
if it does the job you want... then it's worth it, of course

Is that the BMW standard screen or BMW tall screen that you are comparing to Cee Bailey?

Yes I agree with you on the astethics, but it does do the job as I just found out. I hear the bike on the freeway now, not a bunch of wind.

With the new shield down it's a little shorter than the old one fully up and it pushes the wind right at my helmet. With the old shield down, lots of wind right across the chest.....

Same applies for the giant topcase on your bike, Greg

the great thing about that large topcase... is because i'm SO short (5'6")... from the rear, the bike looks like it's piloting itself

Not to start any trouble with you...

..."I want ZERO wind on me and a TON of luggage space" people, but there is another solution for your problems with your stock GTs.

It's called a Miata MX-5.

(Just kidding - mostly.)
