Default Ness flip vs vstream

Been wanting a new windscreen for along time. Thinking about pulling the trigger. Saw a black XC w/ Vstream and it looked good. Any input? 6' tall if that helps at all. I'm hoping that with a new windscreen and triple tree deflector, the buffeting will frig off lol. Thanks in advance!

I had a v-stream but went to a Baggershield because it wasn't tall enough to get the wind over my head. I am 6'3". I will say though that the Vstream looks dang good on the bike.

Madstad is the fantastic brackets, if that's what you mean!

Here is mine with the Madstad brackets and the tallest VStream they make for the XC. You can see it almost disappears on the bike but it works well and has less head shake around big rig tractor trailers. The others with the tinted shield is included for comparison to how the flip shield might look with the same Madstad brackets.

It is the "crazy brackets" lol ....If you want to kill the buffeting, a triple tree defector and a Madstad windshield is the best setup available....Take this from someone that has tried everything
I'm 6' tall also and have excellent coverage using the 9" shield even though Madstad recommends and 11" for our height

Damnit! Lol. I'm just not a fan. Maybe if I ride a bike with the set up I'd change my mind. I appreciate the input tho!
