Here's the Werks shield in the low, middle and uppermost position. It's the 24 inch model.

Eagerly awaiting development of this for my '09RT before I waste more money trying Cee Bailey.

Yes, please, please, pretty please do a pre-2010 version. I've got a few miles on my '09 RT and would love to upgrade! I plan on putting a bunch more miles on before retiring this wonderful steed.

Got mine on the bike Monday, but Tuesday was the only day to ride with it. Did some speeds up to 80 on I285 (got to love the variable speed signs especially when two across from each other display different speeds) and the buffeting is so much less than the stock shield I am not sure what BMW was thinking.

For lower speeds I can keep the shield much lower to the bike and ride open visor when needed. However I am curious how this will work out in summer

WERKS Quiet Ride is now available in a 22" and 28" tall versions. This is in addition to the standard 24" and the taller 26" initially offered. We are also now offering a light tint option on ALL sizes. I find this tint blocks some road glare, day and night. That bright spot of headlights right in front of the bike isn't where I am looking while cruising down interstates and the light tint seems to help that. You don't look through a WERKS Quiet Ride, so the tint isn't reducing vision out ahead at all. It gives the bike a finished look, takes your eye away from the ugly dash area behind the windshield.

26" tall tinted version:

One of the questions about the Quiet Ride that I didn't address much early on was how they work for a passenger.

I had a 27.5" tall V Stream on the RT, the last aftermarket/modified screen I used before developing the Quiet Ride, and it still gave the passenger significant buffeting. We have bluetooth communicators and the wind noise from turbulence was about all I would hear from her microphone. With the V STream up where I was looking through it it was a little better for her, but I simply do NOT like to look through a screen on a bike.

With the Quiet ride I hear very little wind hitting the microphone. The passenger now thinks the RT is better than the V STrom to ride on! Much less buffeting for her. I tried the Quiet Ride up high thinking it would be better for her, in fact it was not. Turns out the position close to where I normally would have it works for the passenger very well also.

I didn't test for passenger comfort, but is seems to do very well!

Hi Terry,
Just placed my order! 24" tinted. next up, RDL seat. I read all your comments, and even though we are similar in height, here in NorCal, it can get pretty warm during the summer (but not humid like Texas!) and I like to have some air sometimes. Right now, w/ the stock screen all the way up, I have to duck just a bit to get into completely quiet air, so I'm confident your 24" windsheild will do the trick for me. Sorry, I submitted two forms, as I did not read the instructions well, and did not include my shipping address on the 1st submission.

Got my Quiet Ride (shipped very quickly), and went out for a ride on this unseasonably warm day in the SF Bay Area. Hiway 9 and Skyline Blvd. This thing just flat works as advertised! The 24" works just right for me. It goes all quiet at about 75-80% up at speed, so I'm confident when I get an RDL, I'll be fine. In town, with it lowered, I get a nice cooling breeze in my face w/ my helmet visor up. Wow, I just can't believe the difference between this and the stock shield!

Ok, I'm pondering this windshield but have a question or two.
Changed to a V-Stream from OEM. Much better, but not thrilled about the side curves which to me, would allow a copious amount of rain to bypass the protection of the shield. Opinion?

I've only a few thousand miles on this '15 RT, although I've had several prior as well as a handful of K's. Didn't like the K16 that much and the Cee Bailey shield helped, but there was still a wind management issue with K itself. After 30k miles, I was done with it and am back with the faithful RT.

I'm picky about windshields and am interested in an opinion as noted above.

PS, I'me slightly over 6', have a Rocky Mayer seat on high position and at times have my wife with me on X-country rides. 24 or 26? Really don't want to be in the position of wishing I had one or the other after having one or the other.

Thanks.
