I have to agree with GermanMike... I just installed the Puig windshield as well. First off the thing looks amazing on the bike (I got the dark smoke for my Red Deluxe). It just looks awesome. Way better than the cheap looking (although functional) Honda Tall screen.
The angle is much steeper than the tall screen so it only comes up to about my chin (I'm 5'9"), the air is forced right into my face (which accounts for the wind noise). The air does go over my chest and shoulders perfectly, and there is no buffeting, but the additional wind noise is definitely noticeable.
I have the Cee Baily sport shield as well, but it simply doesn't do the job for me. Actually the original shorty screen performs better in my opinion.
And as mentioned, I have the Honda tall screen, which works well... the top of the shield is right at my nose so the air hits right about the forehead area on my full face helmet. but I've never liked the way it looks. It just looks like a cheap piece of plastic with a few holes in it. Again, works OK but looks like crap in my opinion. Why take a cool bike and make it look crappy?
I really hoped the Puig screen would be "the right" shield but I'm still searching. I do love the appearance and for summer riding the air flow on my face might be fine, but if I wanted that, I could use the shorty screen.
May try the laminar lip or Puig screen extention on the Puig winshield and see if that helps. If you're looking to purchase the Puig screen just be aware that it sits very low and swept back. Looks coo,l but doesn't perform as well as the Tall screen if you're 5'9" or taller.
